    Excellent turkish menu and great prices. Start with the mezze and grilled shrimp. Izkender kabab only until 8/9pm and it is amazing. Otherwise go for mixed gril or any specials.

    Incredible Turkish/Mediterranean cuisine foods, great value of the small but powerful menu of meat/fish entrees and appetizers!!! All of it was so delicious

    The menu consists of 20 or so mezes, or little tastes, a snacking tradition. Highlights include pastoral soup of creamy yogurt, rice and mint, and crisp little cubes of pan-fried calf's liver Read more

    What a place! Wanna feel real taste of Turkey? Order cold appetizer platter Mezo - we took a small portion and even that one was huge! Tea is a real Turkish tea, don't forget to add sugar

    This spot is always packed, and it's easy to see why. Their staples include mezze plates, donor kebabs, and whole grilled striped bass and are some of the best Turkish offerings in the entire city.

    Excellent, solid Turkish restaurant. The mezze platter is delicious... Do not pass on the zucchini pancakes if you happen to be lucky to get the offer as part of the day specials!

    Large mezze platter is a great plate to share for 2. Ask for more bread if you need it!

    For 2 people, the mezzes platter and the iskender kebab are amazingly delicious and perfectly portioned. Go get 'em!

    Awesome meze platter, octopus and fried calamari. Shepherd salad is good but not the best. Overall wonderful time and will be spending more time here in the future

    The large mezze is a meal in its own right, it's a nice vegetarian option. The staff is friendly. They have outside seating.

    Great Turkish and Greek food, super pleasant and polite service and authentic eastern decoration. Don't miss the zucchini balls, cheese pie and sausage.

    Iskender kebab is the best I've had outside of Bursa. It's a must order. Mucver (zucchini fritters) is not on the menu but usually on special. It's a perfect appetizer. Afiyet olsun!

    Authentic Turkish restaurant with very affordable prices. Lentil soup is a must if you're visiting in the winter time.

    After coming dozens of times, no menu necessary: mashed eggplant, cacik, shepherd's salad for app (with lots of bread of course) and for the main: lamb doner kebab. You won't be sorry.

    Obsessed. One of the best restaurants on the UES. Get the cucumber yogurt dip, beef app and crab cakes. Always packed, so expect a wait!

    Great casual Turkish restaurant with pleasant sidewalk dining when it's not too hot. Best dishes -- Ezme and Iskendar Kebabs! The bread is pretty fabulous too!

    Delicious, fresh Turkish food. Red lentil soup, cheese boreks and mezze platter = YUM!!! Service is great too - super friendly waitresses. New fave.

    Everything was great. And the prices... Wow. So low for such good food.

    Patio tables are prime for people watching, sipping wine, and ordering mezze to better demolish the incredibly delicious free bread.

    The food here is good, especially the mixed grill and seafood options. The rice pilaf contains secret orzo, putting a crimp in a menu that is otherwise quite gluten-friendly.

    Always a good meal. I highly recommend the mezze platter and swordfish kabobs. The only downside is the acoustics.

    Mezze is amazing...octopus my favorite around...and the bread alone is worth the trip! A must eat....

    Food is good but, unless you're incredibly hungry, 2 people can share 1 entree/large salad. Also, the walls absorb absolutely no sound so it's incredibly loud in there. Not a place for a quiet meal!

    We love the generous portions and plates designed for sharing, in true Turkish fashion - come with a big group of friends.

    Noisy! Sit upstairs if you want to hear each other. Best Calamari and meze platter of any Turkish restaurant in Manhattan.

    If you come here and don't order hummus, then you haven't actually come here. If you come here, order hummus, and Iskendar Kebab, you will give your taste buds the equivalent of an orgasm.

    We're big fans of Turkish food and Beyoglu really hits the spot. Get the Doner kebab or the Iskender Kebab but save room for the bread!

    Just get their lamb dishes. High quality meat for a very reasonable price – what else can you ask for?

    Meze platter and Beyoglu salad are great. Split that to start, and branzino to share as a main.

    This place is delicious and affordable. The small Mezze Platter is enough to quell your hunger after a day at the MET.

    Great Mediterranean food! The place is small so don't come here without a reservation. It is always packed!

    The Meze platter is a great vegetarian option, especially on a hot day. I could easily have eaten a large plate by myself.

    Packed and for good reason. The rice is delicious and the meat is cooked perfect. Portion sizes are large so share!

    octopus. bread with caviar spread. and you might as well get the hummus. (doner kebab and feta-filled pita/dough were ok but not phenomenal.)

    Get the meze platter! Delicious, everything is homemade, and the small size is more than enough for 2 people to share as an appetizer.

    As an appetizer, the hummus is tasty but their sigara borek is an absolute must-order.

    You can't go wrong with the mezze platter - hummus and spinach are the standouts. The octopus is amazingly tender. Super yum!
