Welcome 2021 in your heated private booth with an amazing dinner. We'll have prix fixe and regular menu until 10 pm.
Dined outside. Very pleasant.
Good food, great service, good vibe! Highly recommend
Wonderful family owned restaurant! The food is amazing!
One of my favorite places in NY!
My friend and I had the lunch special and enjoyed it very much. Portions were tasty and large and service was fine. But we sat outside, which was nice but very noisy being right out on the street. We will come back again soon for lunch or dinner.
A/C was not working well and several things from the menu were not available. This place has alway been excellent in the past and I hope they overcome some of these issues.
Delicious Turkish Food. Outside seating nice set up. Large portions. We shared Mezze trio, feta cigars, spicy cigars. Mains- lamb shank, lamb shish kabob, branzino. Too full for desert but they looked yummy.
Will be back
I have been eating at Ala Turka ever since it opened, and before that when it was on the next block north. I always order Hunkar Begendi, my favorite. Last night it was not only seriously overpriced (about eight dollars more than it used to be) but the meat was seriously underdone and tough. Your kitchen is no longer what it was before the pandemic and $11 for a tiny glass of Raki is outrageous. I will start looking for another place in the neighborhood if things don;t improve radically and very soon. I understand that you have had financial trouble because of the pandemic. So has everyone else, and when you jack up your prices to the extent you have, it simply alienates old customers like me. Coupled with a marked decrease in the quality of the cooking, it's a bad recipe.
The food and service was great and appreciated the outdoor seating.
Good service and nicely presented food. All 4 dishes, fish, lamb , chicken and beef were fair, nothing great but not bad.
Excellent service. Special thanks to Umut.
Great food, I've been here a few times as I live near by and love it each time. Recently took a few members of my family with me and we found a piece of a steel scouring pad in our calamari. I was shocked that all the waiter did was take it away and bring us out a new calamari plate (with much less calamari on it). As I am not one to make a scene I continued my night, but next time I advise to at LEAST apologize and remove item from the customers bill. Especially in todays times, cleanliness is extremely important and finding a piece of steel in ones mouth is very unsettling. I expected more A La Turka.
Always reliable. Delicious hot bread to complement the fresh A La Turka salad. Filet mignon super tender and tasty
Unfriendly wait staff. Had to ask for ice three times. Had to ask the order twice had to ask for check two times. Nobody came to check to see if everything was OK. Really not a pleasant experience and I won’t be back
The feta chees was the BEST!!!!
Love A La Turka. Especially the octopus! Shepherd salad and cacik is great as well. Friend had the special fish in parchment and enjoyed that as well. Went there twice last week since I was just back in town after 2 year absence. Will probably go again this week...
I had to return w friends for a second bday dinner- that’s how much I enjoyed it. Thank you Sam and Oyku and rest of staff for a great night. I suggest ordering and sharing a few apps and salad and sharing before main cours. Evetything was delicious and fresh!
Very good value and all the choices our party of 3 were excellent.
Turka has good food and good outdoor seating
I made a reservation for 8 people outside. I picked this place because it's convenient to the Q train stop on 72nd/2nd Ave. We had the perfect table as far away from 2nd Ave as possible, as I had requested. The food is reasonably priced and well prepared. The wait staff is pleasant and efficient. My friends thanked me for picking this place to have our first get-together in a long time.
Celebrated my birthday and the staff made a big celebration w sparklers a singing, very fun! Food is always delicious and ample portions, couldn’t finish. Returning next week w different friends!
Delish as always!!
The stuffed chicken is the best.
Excellent eggplant appetizers. Very ample portions. Kebabs good.
It was a birthday and we were well taken care of! Excellent!
This is our regular go to for in house dining and take out and food has always been great.
Disappointed - however we were 7 people including 1 ten year old. we ordered 4 appetizers and 4 main courses but the waiter told us next time on fri/sat we need to order 7 main courses too. that seems unreasonable. understand if we didnt order any appetizers.
Service was slow but that seems to be the trend due to lack of staff accross NYC restaurants
Kebab were not the best.
Lovely food and great staff. Had a wonderful evening, will definitely go back again.
Great food and outdoor area
Excellent food and service. Love the outdoor seating.
Great food - large portions. Nice selection. Great for vegetarians and vegans.
Fabulous food and outstanding service. The portions are huge!
Terrific choice of main courses and wonderful helpful service.
The ambiance, waitstaff and outdoor seating are lovely. However, the overall quality of the food disappoints: for example, the lamb shish kabab was tough and raw on the inside, while the manti had no filling, The appetizers were tasty, the service was friendly and attentive - so a very mixed bag.
Always a winner, I wish they would bring back the brick oven dishes

The beef shish is amazing - tender and delicious. Great salads too.
Delicious Turkish cuisine served in a sophisticated white tablecloth setting. Generous portions and attentive service.
Delicious salads and shish kebob. Great atmosphere outdoors with partitions between tables and Mediterranean decor.
Amazing food and drinks!
