Turkish
As far as authentic Persian experiences go, Turkish Cuisine in the Hell's Kitchen District really cannot be beat. Once you step foot in this place you will feel that you have been transported direct to the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. The donor kebabs are highly sought after, as is the Turkish coffee for lunch. With the abundance of fresh vegetables served with every dish at Turkish Cuisine, you really cannot go wrong.

For a cultural experience, consider taking the family to Turkish Cuisine for your next gathering. The menu contains a bit of everything, so even the most discerning of taste buds are likely to find something that appeals. Consistent", "tasty" Turkish fare at "reasonable" rates make this Theater District veteran a "delightful" choice "pre-curtain". Full review Zagat. Turkish cuisine has a beautiful heated backyard seating area .

    This is one of our most favorite places to dine when we are visiting NYC! Authentic Turkish food with friendly, efficient waitstaff. The restaurant is small, lending to its charm--definitely a neighborhood favorite it seems, given the number of customers we observed speaking Turkish to the staff. They have outdoor seating in both the front and the back if one wants outdoor options. Our waiter remembered us from our visit in April...I guess we were memorable! haha! It's so hard to decide on what to choose to eat because it all sounds great. This time, we enjoyed babaganush and their special appetizer of spinach and cheese rolled between super thin sheets of lavash, grilled and served with yogurt sauce. I can also recommend the excellent Sigara Borek and the Mucver Kofte as appetizers. For dinner, we had the day's specials--grilled lamb chops that came with a tomato based bulgur rice and vegetables, and the grilled branzino with a simply dressed green salad with peppers, tomato, cucumber and onion. If you are a wine drinker, try the Turkish wine. It's good, and goes so well with the food. Baklava and rice pudding completed our meal along with Turkish coffee and fresh mint tea. There's no rushing you here...and you truly can't go wrong with any item. But if you can't decide, ask the waitstaff what are their favorites! They always steer you in the right direction. We can't wait to return soon!

    We had a group of 12 on a Saturday evening. We sampled many appetizers, and had a variety of meals. Everyone reported that their food was excellent. The service was good, especially since the restaurant was quite full. It is a small space, so our large group added to the "energetic" environment! I have eaten there on another occasion, when it was a good deal quieter. Good food, good service. I would recommend!

    Delicious food, wonderful service! We asked to be seated out on the (gorgeous) back patio, on a slightly chilly day when everybody else was indoors; they happily seated us there where we had the patio to ourselves, turned on a heater, and gave us excellently attentive service. The food was absolutely delicious -- we shared it all, and we all loved everything. Plus, they got us in and out in plenty of time to make a 7:00 show. Highly recommended!

    Words cannot describe how great this place is but I'll try. The ambiance is welcoming. The female hostess was amazing from beginning to end. I had the okra stew. The avocado hummus with the warm pita was to live for over and over again. I enjoyed the music playing. Everything about Turkish Cusine was a 10+. Please eat alone like I did, take a friend, your spouse or even host a party but please try it, I guarentee you will not be disappoited at ALL.

    We had 3:30 pm lunch reservations and were seated promptly. Beautiful room, lovely service. The wine was good, stuffed eggplant was excellent, the falafels were some of the best I'd ever had. We were even given a small complimentary dish of their eggplant appetizer special. The only thing that was troubling was the avocado hummus special that we ordered. It was tasty (very white, didn't seem to have much avocado in it), but a very small portion for $15. Really? It was strange, too, because the falafel platter came with hummus, and that serving was green in color and tasted more like avocado. We didn't bother to ask because everything was delicious, but the price for the little dish of the hummus special was ridiculous. I will go back, but won't order a special appetizer again.

    I am Turkish and “Turkish Cuisine” is the closest Turkish restaurant to my place where I can enjoy some Turkish food. The staff is always very kind and the service is very good. They also have a small garden at the back for outdoor dinning in summer which is cute. I usually order only mezzes so I do not want to be unfair grading the full menu but mezzes were average (avocado hummus, calamari, cheese plate, sigara borek, dried eggplant dolma) and they definitely need a different type of white cheese as mezze. Ideally a full-fat white or Tulum cheese. The one they have is not good quality, does not go well with raki. They offered a desert on the house this time but I was full so I could not eat it but we appreciated the gesture. Overall, nice neighborhood restaurant with good service.

    I don't understand the great reviews this place gets. It was underwhelming to the extreme. Service was slow and inattentive (had to wait about 15 minutes after we sat just for our table to be wiped down from the prior guests as an example) The food was simply not good. I love Mediterranean food and have dined at some amazing places - this was not one of them. The hummus was underwhelming (as well as a paltry serving); the babaganoush was mediocre; and the falafel did not taste fresh. But the worst were the lamb dishes. The pieces were small and way over cooked - and there wasn't many of them in either of our meals. Will not be back

    It was so wonderful to get back to one of my favorite theater area restaurants. The three of us were so happy with what we ordered. The service was superb. The turkish wine was excellent. It was altogether a fabulous experience. Try the spicy hummus! So tasty! I had one of their specialties...the eggplant dish,....so good!
