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 .

    1st time but won't be our last. The food was delicious, especially the dolma and the pork chops. The staff were wonderful. Due to covid concerns, we aren't eating indoors yet and really appreciated the manager opening the back patio for us.

    It used to be great-- now it was overpriced, and pretty middling. $200 for two apps, two entrees, two glasses of wine and dessert. I can't recommend anymore.

    The service was friendly and attentive but unfortunately the food was only mediocre. Moussaka is traditionally served with a bechamel sauce not the melted mozzarella used here. All our dishes seemed heavy on tomato sauce which overpowered all other flavors. The garden area was not heated and the metal chairs were very uncomfortable.

    This is a friendly, "neighborhood" Mediterranean restaurant. The outdoor garden is lovely and the staff are helpful, professional, and kind. The food is fresh and tasty. The prices are reasonable. I have been to this restaurant many times over the years.

    Upon entering you have the feeling of being in Turkey. It is decorated as though you were in a Turkish restaurant in Turkey; the music is Turkish. Good atmosphere. Enjoyed my food . I was given a basket of nan cut into triangles with a dish of slightly spicy green humus - delicious. Entree - lamb with vegetables was also delicious and very filling. Although I had no room for dessert, the waiter brought one of the smaller desserts. He wanted me to take a taste. So I had a little bite; it was good, but I couldn't finish it. I would definitely return again and it's so convenient to the theatres. Oh, and there's an outdoor garden in the back.

    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.
