A friend and I had after-theatre dinner here, and asked for the prix-fixe dinner special for $26.95. You not only get soup or salad, but a choice of entree, beverage (tea, or rich Turkish coffee), and a dessert. A wonderful deal, and no

The decor is pretty insane, but the food is of a high standard---excellent spicy or plain Hummus , mouth watering Tarama, unbelievable Baba Ganoush, great vine leaves, superb Lebne---full of walnuts. The kebabs are served with excellent rice, and the Pita bread--which you will not find in Turkey--is plentiful and hot. This place is a find, well worth the trip from the Upper East Side, or even downtown! There are blue glas eyes everywhere to protect you from the evil spirits, just in case you need that too

My husband and I have been there twice. I had the eggplant kabab and it was excellent. It was served with salad and rice. My husband had the chicken kabab and he enjoyed it also. For desert, we shared baklava and it was very good. It is in the theatre district, so it can get busy before the Broadway shows begin. As far as prices go, they were reasonable - especially for Manhattan.

We had lunch here- they have a$10.99 lunch special. It included appetizer, entre, drink. I had the cold spinach appetizer with a bit of white sauce on top- very good-really decent size. My husband and the other couple had the hummus-very good- came with a bunch of hot pita. For entre, I had the chicken kabob and my husband and others had the kofti - ground lamb. Both came with salad, rice with bits of veggies in it and some red cabbage. Drinks were either hot/cold tea or soda. since it's a few blocks from the port authority terminal, it's really convenient for day trippers. Would definitely go back again.

I recently took a friend visiting New York here and it has now become a weekly staple. Lunch is a great value , as the special includes a drink, appetizer, and entree (if you pay cash). We shared a lamb and vegetarian dish with appetizers of hummus and spinach. At night, they have a nice sized outdoor garden. Everything I've ever eaten there has been completely mouth watering. You'll probably spend $10 for lunch and $18 for dinner - great value for the unique flavors.

We ordered the Sigara Boregi for an appetizer. It consisted of 4 small pieces that were sitting on a bed of wilted, brown tinged iceberg lettuce. They were tasty but rather ordinary, and for $6.95 I expected more food with a better display. I ordered the Chicken Beyti Kebab. The portion was quite large, about 8 pieces. The sauce was light and nicely spiced, although the filo wrapping the meat quickly became soggy. The meat was grilled nicely. The salad had too much dressing and was soggy and consisted of more of the wilted iceberg lettuce. My husband ordered the Combo Grill which consisted of a variety of grilled meats, rice, tomatoes and peppers. It seemed to be a bit on the dry side, but was a fairly decent portion. The prices of the entrees range from $15.95 to $17.95. They are NOT $8.95 to $15.95. I don't feel the quality of the food is worth these prices. It is decent, but I feel it is comparable to any diner/cafe food, cooked and presented without much imagination. I would expect to pay between $10.00 and $12.00 for this type of food, at the very most. The beers were $7.00 each, I feel they could have been priced at $5.00. There was no room for desert, although the tray presented to us looked quite tasty. Our bill came to about $96.00, for 2 people. Service was attentive, without feeling rushed. We sat in the garden out back. It would have been nice as there are a few large trees shading it, but there was too much noise coming from the establishment next door as well as the sounds of air conditioners humming. The inside of the restaurant is decorated with cheap tourist souvenirs, fairly uncomfortable patio furniture and the lighting is too bright. The bathroom door does not lock. I feel this establishment caters mostly to the Broadway tourist crowd who may feel they are getting a bargain (euro to dollar). There are too many other great restaurants in this city, priced more reasonably and with better atmosphere. We won't be returning.

This place is a really nice find - with good food at decent prices. I've been here several times, and I haven't been disappointed. The walls and tables are adorned with the 'evil eye', which was a little startling when I had first stepped into this restaurant. The babaganoush and falafel are good appetizers. As for the entrees, unless the entree is broiled, grilled or baked, the other main dishes seem to be a bit greasy (i.e.: chicken with couscous, chicken & eggplant kebabs) but they are still very tasty. Warning about service: while the wait staff is friendly - just beware of one of the waitresses who comes across extremely disgruntled and a bit aggressive.

Pros: good food, good prices, in a nice area (Hell' Kitchen)

Cons: (1) disgruntled waitress

This place has some serious kitsch going on, but in a good way. The glittery table clothes and geomentric art was set off by the shelves of figurines, and other little trinkets spread throughout the tiny restuarant. Cozy and inviting, good service, knowledgable and helpful waitresses who will make excellent suggestions. Interesting desserts, I recommend the white one with the filo dough and walnuts. Overall good food, good fun.

The food is good - especially all the small plates...amazing falafel and tabouleh (?) salad. The place is small...quaintly decorated. Nothing fancy but eclectic and appealing with enough "evil eye" ward off charms to protect all in the restaurant forever! Definitely worth going if you want some Turkish food. The staff was also friendly...

The impression we got was of Turkish comfort food. Nothing sophisticated. Kebabs and couscous and salads, mainly. But for where it is, and how much more expensive restauarants up in the West 40s can be, and for something maybe a little different without being scary different, you could do worse.
