The service is so welcoming and efficient. Although we were there at brunch time, we were able to choose from the regular menu. The food is well spiced and very good.

We tried this place on a suggestion and everything was great. The only complaint was that our server changed halfway through dinner and that cause a tiny bit of confusion, but the baklava more than made up for it!

Fantastic Turkish food! Clearly popular with a full house. Excellent apps (cold mixer plate) and a tasty pasta/ dumpling dish. Order the cucumber martini. Reasonable prices with big portions. Okay ambience. Go for the food!

The food was very good. I had a beef kebab, which came with rice and salad. Everything was cooked really well. I tasted my daughter‘s lentil soup and found it to be very good as well. Generous portion, as too. I definitely recommend this restaurant. The food is not exquisite or exotic. But it’s a good place for a famiiar, comfort meal that is well done.

I dined at Deniz with another family (8 of us in total) prior to the Elton John concert at the nearby Barclay's Center. The menu is very similar to Persian restaurants I frequent at home in Atlanta. I shared a hummus plate and ordered chicken kebob. Service was very good and the waitstaff was very attentive and respectful of our schedule. The food was fresh and tasty.

My husband and I went here before a concert at Barclays Center . The lamb gyro platter was fantastic and they are large size platters. I had the shrimp kebabs and they were also excellent. The service was impeccable . Would definitely go back !

Food was delicious, fresh and well prepared. The grilled whole branzino was perfectly cooked and came with rice and a salad. The cold mixed appetizer platter was delicious. Every meze was fresh and had a unique, special flavor and texture. Sunday evening family gathering. Conversations across the table easily heard. The food was enjoyed by all.

Good food, diversified menu, and impeccable service. We were the group of 14 people and everybody was happy with appetizers and mane course. It's not a fancy place, decoration is modest to say the least. But if you want to have good dinner and to be able to talk - it's the right venue.
Recommend for BAM pre-theater dinner (very close) or if you happen to be in the area.

We had dinner before going to BAM. The food was excellent and the service lovely and when they realized that we were there for a theater performance they made sure we get the food fast.
Our whole family was sorry to leave in a rush and would have loved to stay muuuuuuch longer !
