Great food, fantastic service, warm atmosphere. The roasted eggplant mezze was a personal favourite. I had fish for the entree and it was perfectly cooked! The servers were happy to explain menu options. Our water glasses were always filled, our orders taken as soon as we put our menus down. It was all round a positive experience.

We didn't know where to eat, having visited the Historic Archive on 77th street, and this unassuming restaurant nails it with home-cooked tasty Turkish dishes like manti (dumplings), grilled lambchops, and feta cheese in phyllo dough. Service is attentive and surprisingly fast (but not rushed), though the main dining area is a little dated and stuffy. The food is frankly delicious. Large round tables make the place suitable for groups. The Kazandibi, a "caramelized, bottom of the pan milk pudding" tastes like roasted marshmallow (that´s a good thing) and the baklava with sprinkled pistachio on whipped cream tastes great with a dose of Turkish coffee.
