    Wonderful food & service, Uskudar Turkish Restaurant is a really nice surprise. The decor could not be more simple but the food is fresh, this Turkish food spot is a little slice of Istanbul -- I had ordered the whole broiled Red Snapper

    The sign that said Appetizers and Wine won the day vs the other competitors on the block. I would up having the lunch special with a first, main, and desert courses. I tried both Turkish Red Wines. They were both dry and flavorful. The bread was warm and crisp and the Coban Salad was very fresh. You could tell the vegetables were fresh and crisp. For my main dish I had a comb Lamb/Chicken Adana. The meat was so tender and tasty I don't think I left even a scrap of meat. For desert the Turkish Coffee (always a favorite) and Kayisi (apricots) were a superb ending to my meal.

    I think Uskudar is a great place for going on a date and perfect to start a night out on the Upper East Side.

    Used to go here often, but moved away. Tried it again and very disappointed; the food was uninspired and not necessarily fresh. We thought it was overpriced for what it was, so on leaving I only left a 10% tip. The waitress stopped me and demanded double the sales tax - this was their ""policy"". WHat a nerve!

    Pros: OK Turkish food

    Cons: bad value, terrible attitude

    Food is average, no ambiance, mediocre service. Used to be a good restaurant I'm amazed at its dramatic downturn.

    Conveniently located on the upper east side, on 2nd Avenue, try this restaurant when you are in the mood for really fresh fish or typical Turkish fare including lamb kababs. The restaurant is small and has no atmosphere but the location is perfect and the food is always good.

    Uskudar Turkish Restaurant is a gem in my neighborhood. It has been in the same location for nearly 20 years now, and I'm sure their longevity is due to the regulars who know a good thing and keep going back! Another Turkish restaurant just opened up two blocks away, but Uskudar is better. The ingredients, though simple, are prepared with complex blends of spices. Hot dishes are cooked to perfection. The ambiance is pleasant even in such a tiny space. The excellent, conscientious service was a welcome change from the usual attitude of upper east side waitstaff. I wouldn't want Uskudar to change a thing!

    Cons: Small room, tables very close together.

    A really nice surprise... The decor could not be more simple and plain but the food is fresh -- Not over-seasoned and the service impecable with no shi-shi..

    Ask for the whole broiled Red Snapper and start with the artichoke...

    Had a party of 4 people plus 2 year kid. Made reservation ahead of time because I heard the place was small. Decor is zero. 2 waiters for the whole restaurant, but service was very good. Slow at times, but definitely worth the wait for the food. Kofte kabobs are very good. Hummus and spinach pastries are good appetizers. Prices for entrees range from $12.95-16. Overall great bang for the buck!

    This tiny treasure is worth your time - especially if you enjoy Turkish or Middle eastern fare.

    While small and cramped, the friendly servers work their buns off to serve up tasty treats from the kitchen.

    Try the Kafta Kebabs and Lamd dishes. very good, indeed.

    I have been a faithful customer of theirs for over 10 years. For a restaurant to last 10 years in NYC is pretty impressive, so they must be doing something right. The price/quality ratio is excellent, the service good and atmosphere perfect. This is my favorite neighborhood joint.

    It is hard for me to share this information with other Upper East Side diners but here it is. Uskudar serves authentic home-made Turkish cuisine. I have been a loyal customer for three years now and never once disappointed either with the service or the food. A lot of Turkish dinners could be seen at this restaurant enjoying their familiar comfort food. It is a tiny restaurant with only fifteen or so small tables. It is a perfect place to see what Turkish people eat in their own houses. Try the Yogurt Chicken or the Quails for main course and Sheppard Salad or an Ezme Appetizer. Dont forget the desert. Youll find that Uskudar is very homey and inexpensive compare to other Turkish restaurants in the city. I am hoping that theyll stay that way.

    We get take-out/delivery from this place a lot, but the little restaurant is nice and cozy. Can ususally get a table right away. the Hummus is great, and the red bean soup is excellent. I've tried everything on the menu and its all good. Its not worth complaining about a bathroom as many others have. Afterall, who goes to a restaurant and judges the bathroom? The wine list? well, thats worth an upgrade! otherwise great

    Pros: taste, ambience

    Message from Uskudar

    New York City's 30 year old neighborhood institution offers authentic Turkish recipes in two inviting dining rooms where appetizers are familiar yet lively, kebabs are well flavored and stews are excellent. Exquisite wine and beer selection plus Nespresso coffee and organic Numi tea offerings seal the deal.
