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...

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.

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.

My husband and I had a Friday night dinner in this place. We made an order and were drinking wine.
When food arrived, my part of the order was not the one I ordered. When I mentioned it, she tried to convince me that I was wrong. I insisted on my choice.
She became extremely mad and angry. She left the table, approached the manager and yelled something.
Instead of asking any questions the manager picked up all the the plates from our table. With food! He never let us finish food and wine. He asked us to leave the restsurant.
Unbelievable behavior! We live in San Francisco for 25 years, traveled all over the world but never experienced such unprofessional treatment of customers.

I eat a great deal of Turkish food (married to a Turk)- I think this is one of the best Turkish restaurants in the city.

We are regulars at Troya and have always thoroughly enjoyed it. The food with Turkish and Mediterranean flavors is fantastic, and the staff and their service are remarkable. The white wines from Turkey are worth trying too! We love Troya and will go back.

Went to Troya on the recommendation of a friend....was not disappointed at all. In fact, was so pleasantly surprised! The red lentil soup was to die for...really, really tasty! The waiter was so friendly and kind and my friends and I had a superb dinner before heading to the Fillmore.

The whole dinner experience elicited a "meh" from both of us. We ordered a number of small plates to share. The hummus was pasty and tasteless, the lamb meatballs (more akin to lamb patties) were over done and dry. The quinoa salad was bland - perhaps adding a touch more feta for flavor - but as it was there were only wee tiny little feta crumbs to add a much needed pop. The two highlights were the roasted brussel sprouts - - nice and crispy with a yummy red pepper dipping sauce- and the roasted cauliflower. But, since it was supposed to be a Mediterranean restaurant, we were hoping that the actual Mediterranean food would have been the star of the show. On the other hand, the servers were nice - so at least there was that.

Absolutely delicious and a neighborhood gem. The lamb kebap was delightful but the short rib is out of this world. Tasty veggies appetizers of cauliflower and brussels sprouts. Amazing service. A favorite on Fillmore and in open table. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

We have dined at Troya at least 4 times in the past 2 years. While the food was good still the choices were limited. There was only two wait staff. The restaurant was almost empty and the atmosphere of the past completely gone. Probably won't ever return.

Big disappointment!

I don't understand how restaurants that are half empty on a Saturday can have an attitude. Perhaps that's why they are half empty. The guy who help us sit down had an attitude, didn't seem happy at al that we were there to eat. The service could also be better. How is it that two people order soup and it comes in two different bowls. Does a high end restaurant not carry two marching bowls. But I like the food so I'll go back.
