Turkish
As far as authentic Persian experiences go, Turkish Cuisine in the Hell's Kitchen District really cannot be beat. Once you step foot in this place you will feel that you have been transported direct to the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. The donor kebabs are highly sought after, as is the Turkish coffee for lunch. With the abundance of fresh vegetables served with every dish at Turkish Cuisine, you really cannot go wrong.

For a cultural experience, consider taking the family to Turkish Cuisine for your next gathering. The menu contains a bit of everything, so even the most discerning of taste buds are likely to find something that appeals. Consistent", "tasty" Turkish fare at "reasonable" rates make this Theater District veteran a "delightful" choice "pre-curtain". Full review Zagat. Turkish cuisine has a beautiful heated backyard seating area .

Our family of 4 ranging from 78-17 all enjoyed the food, the service, and the ambience. We look forward to our next chance to be there.

We loved the food, ambiance, and friendliness. We were discouraged that our salad arrive with the main dish (not before).

Our biggest surprise was the price of the pudding! $13.95 is way too much for a serving of pudding. Also, we ordered pistachio and got chocolate. Desserts should be listed on the menu, so that the price is known ahead.

Everything else is good value, but he pudding is way over-priced!

Very uncoordinated with reservation, had to fight for table that was held a week before on credit card. Kept pushing multiples of dishes on us. Meal took > 3 hours. Wasn’t in a rush but come on.

This was our fourth or fifth visit to Turkish Cuisine. We left feeling that the quality of the food was inferior to that of our earlier visits, the wine was of poor quality and overpriced. Two lamb chops were very good but the third was decidedly rare. Lamb in yogurt was dry, chewy and lacking taste.

Amazing food. I got the lamb chops and my wife ordered the chef special Manti. We also got spicy hummus and the cold mèze spinach. Everything was delicious. Also tried the house lemonade which was excellent and had a pistachio dessert. We were there for my wife’s birthday and it was a complete treat. Highly recommend!

Such nice people but such poor food on the night I was here, I’m sorry to say! I’ve eaten a lot of Turkish food (in Turkey and locally). My dish was overcooked, tough, weirdly seasoned, and barely lukewarm. Decent service and a warm welcome disintegrated as more patrons arrived and server chaos resulted. Maybe just an off night, I hope? (I hate to write a poor review but felt the positive reviews here had led me astray so should be countered.)

I’ve been going to Turkish Cuisine for YEARS now and I have never been disappointed! The quality of the food is the best Turkish food I’ve ever had. It’s very flavorful and the ambiance has you feeling like you took a trip to Turkey!

Can I recommend the combo grill! You get a taste of all of their meats and they are all delish!

Everyone who works there always makes you feel at home. I believe you’ll love it!

Enjoy!

My friend and I split a falafel appetizer. Then he ordered lamb chops (a special) and I got chicken shish kebab. Some of the items are a bit pricey, but the portions are generous, and everything was delicious. The waitress was very nice, and brought us little squares of Turkish Delight with our check.

We were going to a concert in the area for the first time in ages, and wanted something a bit special for dinner. Turkish Cuisine more than filled the bill...

Great cuisine for family dining option with decent food choices and ambience. On our visit there was a group who became very loud and was very uncomfortable. I think if restaurant can enforce noise level policy that will make more pleasant environment.

Good food but prices are high and you will hear options for items not listed in menu which were very pricey. Portions aren’t big enough.

Appetizers came without any plates, asked for bread which came after we finished. Tip was added for party of five. Reserved table for outdoor through open table but they didn’t had table available so we sat inside.

Over food was delicious but there are other Mediterranean options around which will be good options for us next time.

Wonderful assortment of grilled specialties that come with salad, seasoned rice, vegetables. Each dish was enough for leftovers. We started with the combination platter of cold appetizers, and each of the eight selections was wonderful. The restaurant has so much character with all kinds of Turkish paraphernalia adorning the walls. The tables were well separated and there were free masks as well as large pumps of hand sanitizer at the entrance. The service was great. The server made us feel very special and was very knowledgeable about all of the dishes. We had a lovely time...

I came here for the 1st time even though we usually go to restaurants in Hells Kitchen. Best. Food. Ever. My sister LOVED her birthday lunch with our friends. Their meat dishes are great and definitely try the specials and the lemonades which were very refreshing. Also, this place has some beautiful turkish ornaments hung all around the restaurant. Definitely coming here again!

Came here for my husband’s birthday. Unfortunately this restaurant is not following Covid protocols for indoor dining. Every table inside the restaurant was full. Tables were placed less than 6 ft apart. People were getting up from their tables and walking around without masks. There was no temperature check upon arrival.
