Tava Turkish and Mediterranean Cuisine
I have already been to it a dozen times in the past year. A secret gem of a place. Spotless, shiny clean. A discrete and pleasantly decorated place that has a calming effect when you walk in. You start hoping the food will be good because you started liking the place. Efficient, polite waiters are surprising, compared to students working for pocket money or people in between jobs.
The cuisine is a different type of Turkish, mostly from Southern Turkey, with Arabic influence and layers upon layers of subtle tastes on your palate. This is the closest I got to what I imagine the rich and diverse Ottoman cuisine ever was. Should definitely be tried.
Everything was phenomenal- and really reasonable. We couldn’t finish it all, which was disappointing- order less than you think you’ll need
generous portions of delicious food, I WILL go back. Also not a bad spot for a date night.
Exceptional food and interesting drinks, a great addition to the neighborhood offerings.
Absolutely a great experience. Food was wonderful, service was great and the overall “feel” of the restaurant was right in line.
One Good neighbor restaurant I love.
The mixed appetizer plate was terrific as was the lamb manti.
All of our dishes were amazing and the service was attentive. We shared so many dishes that I couldn’t count them all but we ate every bit
The storefront is unassuming, but once you walk inside, the decor is lovely and ambient. It’s still a bit cold outside, but it looks like there is nice outdoor space for the summer as well. The food is good and the portions are generous (each plate was really two meals). I would recommend the dips appetizer - each option was delicious.
Amazing authentic Turkish restaurant. Highly recommend.
Food was good but it took some time to get our drinks / food and our water never got refilled. Staff seemed nice but seemed a bit frazzled.
This restaurant was wonderful. The food was great, service attentive and ambiance was nice
Excellent service ! Fresh food! Salad was good and meat was tender and moist. !
I was pleased with the service and good at this place. I'd say it exceeded my expectations and I'm glad I decided to drive there to check out this place.
Not recommend and will not return. Food not fresh, poor service
Wonderful attentive service and excellent Turkish food. I really hope Tava is successful!
Good. It was fun.
Glad to see Tava picking up steam in the neighborhood after the last two restaurants in the location closed. A liquor license will definitely help them out (saw two parties leave when they heard no drinks), but BYOB is always nice to have. Food was great. Service might still be working out the kinks. Will definitely be back.
Excellent service and great food! Highly recommended! BYOB! Will be back definitely!
We had such a great meal here - loved the falafel, chicken, and shrimp. Service was amaaaaaazing too, will definitely go back. And they're still waiting on their liquor license so we got to bring a bottle of wine
First visit with friends from out of town. Food and service was really good. I would definitely return. I also like the fact the owner/manager came by to check on us which I always appreciate.
I was really surprised by this place! Beautiful restaurant, huge and unique. Great service and the food was not lacking anything at all. Fantastic.
Excellent authentic Turkish food in a lovely restaurant. No liquor license yet, but waitstaff enthusiastically serves the wine you bring in.
