This is a small, but delightful Turkish restaurant. Overall, the food is very tasty (zucchini pancakes are to die for!) The atmosphere is quite elegant, and the service attentive. Reservations are recommended, as it can get quite crowded, especially on nights when there is a...More

If you are going to the 92nd Street Y for a lecture, this is a possibility. However, it is not a place that I would recommend as a destination. The food is simply average Greek. With so many truly glorious Greek restaurants in New York,...More

This restaurant specializes in Turkish food. The food generally was quite good. The chicken Kebobs were a bit dry. However the lamb shank special was excellent. The desserts were only average. The service was very good.

Personnel is very good and friendly, the food is good. I wont recommend the mezze for two because 80% of the plate are beans and very little of the others Turkish appetizers that were vey good.

We met our friends there and had a great visit. The food was prepared very well and tasty. We shared zucchini Pancakes and a salad and then had our own entree. We so enjoyed the room and the food.

We went because this restaurant is the only establishment in the vicinity of the 92nd St Y that takes reservations at which the appetizers don't cost $20 (I'm talking about Sfoglia). This section of Carnegie Hill has a paucity of restaurants that take reservations. As...More
