My friends and I ordered the pre-fixe deal and I was expecting a tiny winy portion like other restaurants usually serve. Surprisingly, our friendly waiter served the tasty hummus I ordered which was good for at least 3 people, greek & mediterreanan salad was outstanding too. The skewered meat was good but the bbq'ed meatballs was even more tasty! I highly recommend this place... The dessert was out of this world too (i forgot the name of it) Just don't try the turkish coffee if ur not an espresso fan :)

You should definitely try this place with confidence. You will not be disappointed. The appetizer sampler is a MUST!! The size is decieving. It's actually much more filling than it appears to be in size. And the desserts...To die for! I never had Turkish food before this experience, but I'll surely have it again. Even the Turkish wine was delightful.

What a night it was, we went there with a group of friends on a thursday night, some of us did the Pre-Fix Menu, which was 18.95 and loaded with bunch of great stuff, we did not know much about turkish food, but thank god the young gentelman helped us out all through the menu and gave us some suggestions on the seafood and wine that we can order. We loved everything about this place, the food was incredibly tasty, and the service was just the same as you get in a top class 5 star restaurant.

I was there just couple of days ago with some of my colique after work. We usually have delivery from this restaurant . That was the first time we went there , we all liked it . Service was great and very fast , the mediterranean sea bass was very fresh and delicious . We had also couple of apitazers , I really liked babagannush and sea food soute . Amazingly prices are so cheap . The place was so crowded we waited for a table like 20 minutes . I stricly recomend for reservation . I will definetly go back there soon.

My girlfriend and I chose this restaurant for its close proximity to the theater district in Mid-town. We had items from the Pre-Fix menu that included the salmon kebab and fellafel. Everything was outstanding. The salmon was perfectly prepared and delicious--the fellafel equally so. Additionally, the service was top-notch. Since this is not a large establishment, I would recommend calling for a reservation.

This small cozy place offers delicious food and great service. The pre-fixe menu is a great bargain. It has many choices and the 3-course meal is less than $20! The proportions are huge. You will definitely be full and satisfied! The service was quick and attentive. I strongly recommend this place.

I went to Akdeniz with my two friends from childhood last week for lunch. I have to admit that I was not expecting the best from that restaurant but we gave it a try. The food was excellent and the service was great. All employees carry a great smile on their face. Once you enter the restaurant the great smell of the rich menu makes you more and more hungry. Then a smiling and friendly face leads you to your table. The waiter comes to your table and help you clarify your mind about which appetizers and entirees you can get. The menu is so tempting for future visits. Their pre-fix menu has great options: a starter, an entree and desert comes with coffee or tea. It is only 18,95. No one needs to worry about the drinks because they have a great wine list too. The most exciting part of my experience was to see such an order in a restaurant, although it's located in one of the most crowded parts of Manhattan, and although it was rush hour. Everyone knows what they need to do, and do their best, everything is on time and clean. It even satisfied my old friends who were not really very excited about trying something new. I told this experience to my other friends who work in Times Square. They told me that they already know Akdeniz and order food from there and their delivery is also one of the fastest of Manhattan. I think if one needs a nice Mediterranean journey this modest, kind, comfortable space is a great and delicious choice.
