1 Bite Mediterranean
Posted by MB on 07/06/2009
We decided to try this restaurant for dinner one Friday night based on the reviews we found online. We went in for dinner around 9pm and were given a table for 2 near the back. Service was wonderful, the waiters were very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine menu. We had the swordfish kabobs and stuffed flounder - both were tasty. But the highlight of our meal were the apps - Mediterranean Salad with Feta Cheese and the Zucchini Pancakes. We look forward to going back and trying more options on the menu. Luckily we live in the neighborhood and are within their delivery zone. The chicken shish-kabob sandwich is the perfect take out item and much better than typical chicken sandwiches from local diners. We would recommend Dardanel to anyone looking for a friendly restaurant that feels like it is family-run. Good food and reasonable prices for the neighborhood too!

Excellent over all! Was there few days ago with my GF and her cuz. We basically sample the entire menu... haha... I know > CRAZY! Nevertheless, a complete feast and it was very reasonably priced. I liked the Turkish white wine (great aroma.)

I ordered take out.Grilled octopus salad,Phyllo spinach rolls and Chicken skewers.Everything was very tasty.Moist chicken,great rice and grilled veggies.Crispy spinach rolls,although the salad could have used a bit more octopus... Super friendly staff!! I will definitely come back. I cant' wait to dine in next time.

Quaint little restaurant tucked away near the Queensboro bridge. The food was very great (had the lamb and the fish of the day). Wine selection was extensive and aligned very well with the type of food. Also, I felt the wine was prices very reasonably ... didn't see the $85 cab that was mentioned below. Had some excellent Turkish wine. Overall I would rate this restaurant very high. I would definitely go back here.

its definitely a low key neighborhood place, but the food was good quality and the service was very pleasant. value was comparable to other turkish places in the area. I will definitely be going back.

3 of us had Turskish brunch buffet for $19.95 each plus gratuity and tax [we were not told of 15% service charge included in bill of $75, but not outrageous]. The restaurant is small, clean, nicely decorated. Service was very friendly but only one other big table was there. Food was very good. Everyone gets a small omelet. One ordered Popeye emelet (spinach & tomato), another got Mediterranean (feta & tomato) and I got beef sausage omelet (which was smoky with a kick). Orange juice was advertised on web site but not offered. We were served coffee or tea. There were plates/bowls of hummus (Very Good), mussels, sausage (OK), feta cheese (GooD), olives, cacik (VG), roasted peppers (VG), jams, smoked salmon (GD), carrots, grilled eggplant (GD), onion,tomato cucumber salad (VG), white bean salad, calamri salad (EXCellent), water melon (VG), dessert pastries, chicken kabobs (GD), lamb kabobs (GD) [kabobs in buffet servers tend to lose grilled flavor], chicken adana (ground chicken balls with red peppers, looked like sausage) (EXC), tilapia fish fillets (GD), Turkish bread (VG), mini croissant (VG), Everything was fresh (except for one spoiled lamb cube!). Bathroom was clean. Price is very fair but not cheap; this type of food and this variety is not readily available, never in buffet. Worth a return trip every few months.

I ate here in December and was pleasantly surprised given the first review I read. I had the falafel appetizer, the cucumber sauce, mussels, and the eggplant/beef dish and whole fish. The appetizers were great. The fish was fresh. There are cheap wine options. In general, a great place to have a neighborhood dinner. i will be back with friends!
