The falafel and other appetizers were good. For our entrees we got one lamb skewer, one chicken skewer and one meatballs (each accompanied with with rice and other sides.) The entrees were all a bit bland, with everything on the plate tasting sort of the same and lacking flavor. Service was fine, if a bit slow for such an early time with very few diners in the restaurant. The space is lovely, and everyone was very friendly.

This is certainly one of my very favorite SF restaurants. We LOVE the food, and the people are very very nice and personable. An excellent value for the money, and a wonderful way to spend a little time with friends.

The food at Troya is healthy and savory. I didn’t feel guilty about finishing my entire plate. SO good and sooo good for you.
I’d highly recommend it.

Good. Not great. Good.

This is a solid place with excellent food quality but lacking the flavor of other competitors in SF city. Service was good, not great. I found the bus boy more attentive than our actual waiter. Not a date place at all, more like a cafe than a restaurant. Lovely hostess. A better place for your hard earned money would be Dunya on Polk where the service and food thus far has been unbeatable for me personally in SF city.

loved what we ate, but didn't get past appetizers - large portions and oh, so good. Love the
Cauliflower, the stuffed cabbage rolls and of course, the trio of hummus.
Great spot.

The food was delicious! With three of us, we split several apps and three main dishes. We are vegetarian and everything was delicious and full of flavor. We also had the kanafeh dessert, which was so yummy! Oh and great prices here!

We first visited Troya many years ago when it was still located at 5th and Clement (now Istanbul Kitchen) my wife and I greatly enjoyed the food and attentive service. A subsequent trip to Turkey served to underscore the quality and authenticity of the food but with modern touches. However, any recommendation for Troya at its Fillmore Street location are greatly tempered by the poor service we experienced. We had made evening reservations and were promptly greeted and seated; however, there ended the concept of promptness. It was a good 15 minutes before our order was taken and another 20 minutes before it arrived. The order brought to the table was the main dish not the starter dish we had also ordered. They simply forgot it. No "so sorry" no complementary drink offered. Not to let the food go cold we ate our meal backwards. The food was quite good and consistent with my expectations but the inexcusably poor service should not happen anywhere much less at this price level. Would I recommend Troya to a friend? For the food yes, for the service, don't get your hopes up.

Great Turkish and PanMed cusine. Lamb shoulder was outstanding. Great selection of French, Turkish, and Israeli/Lebanese wines. Service was both friendly and attentive, without being cloying. everyone should try it.

Food was good- weirdest experience though when we arrived for our reservation to find the door locked- people were inside and we tried opening- we could see the hostess and she could see us struggling with the door- yet NEVER CAME TO OPEN IT!! Turns out that they had had a baby shower in the restaurant and a toddler had locked the door. Haha funny- until we almost walked away until the Mother came and unlocked the door. hostess never said a word- or opened the door!

Troya has the best and most authentic Turkish food in SF. It's not your run-of-the-mill generic Mediterranean place. The spices alone make their food unique and tasty. The veg tagine I had was delicious and perfect for the cool nights we have been having lately. And the mocha pot de creme for dessert was fantastic, made with Turkish coffee. My friends loved their chicken kabobs and pork shoulder. The restaurant is bigger than it looks from the narrow entrance and is well decorated. The noise level is relatively low and the service is good. I had not been there for years so was happy to see the quality has not diminished.

Second time at Troya and it was just as good. Excellent food, good wines, great value and personal service by the owner. It reminded us that there are still great restaurants that don’t over charge for excellent food. Especially enjoyed the cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, hummus with lamb and lamb shank. They also have a wonderful Bordeaux on the wine menu. Go!

After attending the S.F. Bach Choir's Annual Candlelight Concert, we walked down Fillmore Street to Troya; the food and atmosphere of Troya complemented the beautiful performance we had just attended. We were able to sit for dinner without losing the sense of a lovely and moving musical experience.
