Service was excellent. They even gave us a thank-you dessert. Would return.
Great new location. Food was fabulous and the wine list nicely complemented the Turkish food. The decor makes for wonderful evening. Service was spot on and very willing to help us understand our choices and even make recommendations.
What a delightful dining experience! Welcomed warmly at the door, we found the service to be attentive throughout the night. We had stuffed grape leaves that were flavorful with a hint of spice — really good! Spinach pastries were crisp and delicious. Turkuaz Sis, a kebab with cubes of marinated lamb, and the Vegetable Casserole with lamb were our entrees; and they were every bit as good as the appetizers. We had Baklava that was not overly sweet with aromatic fresh Turkish tea. A nice wine selection too. Everything was reasonably priced. A treasure.
Everything was really perfect--a neighborhood gem. Fantastic and interesting selections, especially the hot and cold appetizers. Main courses--don't miss the dumplings!--were so savory. The wit staff could not have been better, the owner/manager was a terrific host. I will go back next week.
We enjoyed the 7 appetizer platter very much - enough for a meal! Although the restaurant lists a prix fixe menu on the website we were told there is none. We had 2 lamb dishes - one with okra and the other was called Sultan’s Delight. The Baklava was excellent and we finished with Turkish coffee, though the medium sweet was hardly sweet at all, next time I’d order the sweet version.
Cozy quiet restaurant with delicious food. Ambience was lovely! Service was phenomenal. Extra attention when waiter found out it was my husband's birthday, he came out with b'day dessert even though we hadn't ordered any. He went beyond his duty of service. He showed compassion and interest! Would highly recommend this Turkish gem of a restaurant. Outstanding!!!
Delicious food brought happy memories of our trip to Turkey. Nice ambience and attentive service made for a lovely lunch.
Outstanding restaurant, terrific service, a new neighborhood gem.
Had a great dinner here with friends. We actually thought our reservation was at their other location, where there is a full bar; this site only offers wine and beer. Nevertheless, the food and service were amazing! Nicely paced, well prepared. The waiter boned our whole branzino fish at table, which was so nice. We will return.
We selected Turkuaz from reviews of restaurants convenient to Studio 54 and were extremely pleased with our pre-theatre dinner. Based on excellent suggestions from our waiter, three of us shared an appetizer of delicious babaganoush, an order of incredible grilled octopus (a special of the day — perfectly prepared) and two orders of stuffed cabbage. We would highly recommend Turkuaz to others and look forward to a return visit.
We were celebrating my granddaughter's 8th birthday. They were extremely friendly when entering and we were seated at a table in the back of the restaurant. We had chicken kabobs and chicken sultan and they were both excellent. When we return to NYC, we will definitely go back.
The food and service were superb! Definitely will go back.
since the last time we were here a couple of weeks ago, the service has somewhat improved and the place does not seem to have its act together as yet. and waiting for courses seems rather long. the food is very good as is the wine so we will come again albeit at a future time.
First time eating Turkish food. Very glad we went there. All food was delicious. Hummus, lamb, and chicken were so good. Would definitely return in the future.
Delicious food. Nice ambience and good service. We would go back DEFINITELY!
Thoroughly enjoyable experience - ambience, service, food.
Delicious soup and grilled chicken. Vegetable casserole not as good!
Excellent service & ambiance!
So good to find Turquaz again since it left the UWS. It was so nice to have my “regular” salmon in grape leaves. The food was a bit dry, otherwise I would have awarded 5 stars. The ambiance was s very pleasant— quiet and attractive.
Good Turkish restaurant in the theater district. It was crowded so people know about it. A varied menu with many choices. The meal was excellent. Do not order too much as the portions are quite large. Nice ambiance, but not too many indoor tables. In the summer, they have an outdoor patio which will ease the overflow. They do have a downstairs section which they needed to use on Saturday night. Make your reservations and try this nice addition to the area around Studio 54.
Service was simply outstanding. Excellent. Cozy environment, nice lit candles and the food was extremely delicious. Better than what was expected...I will surely visit again.
we went for many years to the Upper West Side location and always enjoyed it and so we were very much looking forward to coming here in the theatre district. I understand they have only been open for 3 months so I am making some allowances but I must say that the service was very poor and they could not get the timing right even though we told them that we were going on to a show so it spoiled the experience a bit. the food was okay but I think the kitchen needs some work as well. and they only had one bottle of red to offer which was happily pretty good. we will come back but not for awhile.
My friend and I had a lovely lunch at Turkuaz, where they have a very reasonable lunch special. I would highly recommend it!
We visited Turkuaz mid-day on a Sunday, prior to seeing a Broadway show. The atmosphere was inviting. Turkish music was played softly in the background and we felt transported to a different country. The food was delicious. The service could not have been better. We were given personalized attention. We will certainly return.
Great to come back to Turkuaz in our visit to NYC. Not anymore in a tent but close to Times Square, this place is quiet and the food is amazing. Very nice for a romantic dinner. Service was extraordinary also.
Food is consistently delicious and service is amazing. Highly recommended.
Fresh salad with special mix of olive oil goes well with the pita.
Ground beef and lamb chop were really fresh and tasty.
What a wonderful meal from start to finish at Turquaz! Excellent food, lovely customer service, and a beautiful space for dinner. If only I still lived a few blocks away I would go once a week!
We missed Turkuaz on the UWS so decided to try them at their new location. Quite pleased with the easy reservation procedure, extensive menu and good service. Not quite the ambience of the "old place", but the new has a warm feeling. Menu is about the same--no liquor license yet. Excellent food at a good price. Would recommend and certainly will visit again.
