Vegetable Casserole (Türlü)
Fresh vegetable medley of eggplants, potatoes, tomatoes, green beans, onions, yellow squash, zucchini, green & red peppers, garlic and carrots braised in house special sauce
This was an excellent restaurant and really a pretty good value for the quality and amount of food. We did the Sultan's plate which is a giant platter for 2 with an assortment of meats, salad, fries and sauces. We finished with an excellent rice pudding and a Turkish coffee. Excellent experience - waiter was not super fluent in English which occasionally was a challenge but we worked through it and I would recommend this place to anyone.
We had a birthday dinner there and the staff went above and beyond to accommodate our request for the seating and offer a dessert on house. The dish recommended, sultan’s plate is delicious, fresh and filling. We enjoyed fully the ambient and deco. Also the Malbec on the wine list is great value. We had a wonderful time. Besides, very comforting that they checked the vaccine card and ID diligently. Overall we had a wonderful time and will go back soon.
Perfectly tender meat dishes presented with drama (fire) alongside an array of delicious vegetables, rice, hummus etc. It’s a women owned restaurant, no tipping. So close to theaters but far from the noise and frenzy.
Great place, nice decor, polite service and delicious kebabs.
Really really poor service. Waitress was to busy to even answer a menu question and we couldn’t catch her even for a glass of water or to order a second glass of wine. 3 of 4 dinners were mediocre however the lamp chops were excellent.
They were very accommodating and very good and the food was excellent.
Our dining experience was excellent. The service was wonderful as was the food. Very nice ambience.
The food was outstanding. The service was wonderful. Beautiful decor in a lovely restaurant. We will definitely return.
Turkuaz never disappoints! We had dined here a few years ago (pre-pandemic) and were delighted to know that the restaurant was still open. The food is as delicious as what we had when we visited Turkey and the service is warm and gracious. Highly recommend!
Wonderful backyard. Enjoyed a healthy dinner with a great salad, salmon and wine. Pretty place
We were looking for a pretty theater meal and I love good Turkish food unfortunately the food was really not very good at all. The service and was fine but the food is not worth the price.
The waiters were super nice and polite. I did not like the food at all.
Very good place
The service was great. Our waitress was very attentive. We were not a big fan of the appetizers but the entree was superb. I got the lamp chops and I was not disappointed. The deserts were also just as good. My fav was the “rice pudding” style desert. Would def recommend you are looking to go on a casual date and also looking for halal option.
Serene back porch and lovely staff. Very pleasant evening before theatre.
Highly recommend, professional staff and good quality food
Birthday dinner was terrific! Ordered the big platter with mixed grill and it came with a fire bowl in the middle. Mice presentation and very delicious meat. Baklava was the candle holder, and couldn’t have enough of it…
Good food, waiter for confused with the order. He solved it, but we were unable to eat all at the same time
Food was delicious. Service was terrible. Took over a half hour to get appetizers. We were not even offered drinks. We had to ask. Asked for unsweetened ice tea. Was given super sweet powdered ice tea. Wrong entree brought for one of the diners.
How does a restaurant run out of Baba Ghanush??
Absolutely delicious meal and fabulous service at this lovely Turkish restaurant. Superb quality fresh ingredients. It was our second time there while visiting NYC this summer and we will be back!
Had a lovely date night with delicious food and service.
Very disappointing. The service was atrocious. We waited 20 minutes watching waiters and the owner walk back and forth past our table as if we were invisible. We finally got up and asked the owner if we could order food and drinks. She looked surprised as if “why would you want that?” But then took our orders. The ship had no captain. The food was good but the mezze platter (a small dinner plate with 5 small spoonfuls of hummus, tzatsiki etc) at $45 was a complete ripoff. The bathroom was FILTHY and had no toilet paper. I was so excited to eat here but I will likely never again due to the poor service and filthy state. They won’t survive a NYC Health Dept inspection. 🤮
For your reservation of 6 at 6:30, 4 arrived at 6:33 , menus were on the table and water was served immediately. 6:42 the last 2 arrived and got water. 6:48 I came to your table. (I got surprised not for your intent to order, I was humanly reacting to the tone of voice where I sensed anger and I couldn't place it). Your drinks and food were serviced promptly and warmly, and at 8:08 your party left. NYC Health Dept granted us an A. Sad to hear that we couldn't satisfy your expectations.
Great service, great food.
Very wonderful atmosphere, food is a bit pricey for quality but all in all definitely worth a visit.
We were seated in a lovely patio out back. Service was phenomenal. Food was fresh and tasty. We had patio to ourselves as we dined quite early. Lovely restaurant with friendly, attentive staff.
Thank you for service and delicious food. Very nice ambience.
This is a beautiful and amazing place
All the dishes we chose were delicious and fresh and the wine selection was very good. Both management and wait staff were attentive and welcoming. The decor was inviting and not overdone. We will definitely return to try out more selections.
Service was surprisingly slow considering the facts that there was almost no one there, but the food was very good and the back patio was nice.
It was very good Turkish food. The prices may seem higher than average but it includes the tip regardless of size of party so we thought it was very reasonable. The ambiance is a bit romantic which was great for us but there were families there as well so good for any occasion. We will definitely be going back.
Always excellent. The Adana Kebobs are a highlight in a menu of deliciousness.
Super service and delicious food.
Excellent restaurant, food, ambience and service. Jesus who was the host, server and waiter was excellent. He was working non-stop to make sure everyone had an enjoyable experience.
Excellent! I rarely come across a 4.9 rated restaurant and this is one is for sure one. Wow wow wow.. the food, the service, the authentic flavors of the Turkish cuisine! It was an amazing experience. I truly recommend this restaurant! 5 stars!
Very easy to make a reservation and restaurant was nice food was amazing
Amazing dinner at Turkuaz. The restaurant is EXTREMLY CLEAN - so I felt very safe. The red lentil soup with pita bread was fantastic. And the branzino with fries and salad was just superb. The service was outstanding. Prices include hospitality - but I left a tip because my server was so awesome. Great dining option in Hell's Kitchen.
We had our wedding dinner here. It’s always warming to come to this restaurant.
