Outstanding manti and kebabs. Approachable and delicious food.
Hummus appetizer was bland - to the point of being tasteless - consistency was also watery. Main course of lamb kabob was tasty and tender. Meet balls were so-so. Overall, it was fine - would give the food 2.5 stars if I could - better than just "fair" - but not quite "good" overall. We've we've eaten better quality middle eastern food elsewhere in the City at less cost. Hence the "fair rating." Service was pleasant, kitchen slow. We were asked how our meal was but the server who asked appeared completely disinterested in the response - perhaps better not to ask in that case...
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed Troya. Every dish we had was delicious! Very friendly and attentive service. Definitely want to go back!
It´s a great place the food is georgus and the service is the correct one, also the portions are correct for pepole from other countries that are not usual to eat big portions
We have dined in Troya on a number of occasions and have always found it a pleasure. Although the staff can be a little harried and somewhat distracted during busy moments, their friendliness and obvious wish to meet your needs makes up for that little glitch.
Super friendly service +great food. Will be back soon with more friends.
As someone who loves Turkish food and knows it very well, I was disappointed to see the very few Turkish options on the menu. The whole Turkish- Californian fusion thing does NOT work. There was almost nothing Turkish on the appetizer menu (except tabouleh made with.... quinoa!!!!).
And the few dishes we picked from the main menu was totally disappointing. 1. Manti, which is like to Turkish ravioli made with ground beef, tasted like plastic outside and there was almost no meat inside. 2. The lamb skewer was hard to chew. 3. Turkish tea was stale and over-brewed.
As for the alcoholic beverages, don't plan to try any authentic Turkish options because 1. They don't have Raki, which is the #1 traditional Turkish drink similar to the Greek ouzo and that's the staples drink for any Turkish dinner. 2. Also, they have only one kind of Turkish red wine and it tastes very bland. They don't carry Okuzgozu or other premium turkish wines.
I had a very good dining experience at Dunya earlier this week and wanted to introduce my friends to another Turkish restaurant, but at the end of the night, I was totally embarrassed to have dragged them to Troya.
Pleasantly surprised! The food was fabulous and the ambiance was wonderful. Wasn't overly crowded, although we were there early before our movie started up the street. Would definitely recommend and look forward to returning.
Food was good - not great. Enjoyed the decor, but the beer selection was pretty poor.
The food was solid but unexceptional. The ambiance said we-don't-care in large print, which in this neighborhood might be as much a feature as a bug. Not a bad neighborhood spot, but nothing to seek out, either.
