This place is fantastic. I heard about it here and took some foodies. We all loved it. Try the hummus, falafel, chicken kebab (so tender), tabouleh, or anything else. The bread was warm (they refilled our basket constantly) as was the service. In fact, this was some of the best service I've ever had at any restaurant. Attentive but not pushy. Our guy had a great sense of humor, as we asked him about a million questions about the many mezzes (the foodies are a tough crowd). It's a great meal and a great deal. I can't wait to go back.

Food was excellent. larger portions than you'd expect for pre-fix. Great deal! Service was very attentive. Must check out!

I made reservations here for a large party for dinner based on the reviews on this site and I wasn't even remotely disappointed. I had a moment of doubt because of the unassuming exterior, but the atmosphere inside was great, the food was fantastic, and the people were all very accomodating, especially considering the fact that we had a fair number of people. I highly recommend it!

Akdeniz proved to be a perfect pre-theatre choice for us. The location was a short walk from our hotel on 46th and only a few blocks from the theatre. The restaurant was welcoming, cozy and lively. We had the pre-fix dinners, which included appetizer, entree, and dessert...all fresh, unique and delicious! The wait staff was very attentive and helpful. Our only complaint, and it's hardly a complaint, is that our entrees were huge; easily enough for two or three people. Sharing would certainly be in order, but with the pre-fix price less than $20, it might be a bit embarrassing. This is a terrific little restaurant that we probably wouldn't have found without reading the reviews on this website. Thanks for the recommendation, and we are happy to pass it on to others.

I have never tried Turkish Food before, since it was my first time having turkish food, I really didn`t know what to order, so i called the young and very friendly waiter over and asked him for suggestions. He suggested few appetizers and the entree Mixed Grill, ($18.95) at first i thought it would be too much money for an entree, but when i was done there were still kebabs left on my plate,so i took it home to my husband! Definetly well priced and deliciousss food that you can not miss!

Wow. What a great find. I've spent months in Turkey and around the Mediterranean, eaten in Turkish restaurants from London to Sydney, and Akdeniz is up there with the best. The food is filled with flavour. For main courses, we had the shish kebab (lamb chunks) which were perfectly cooked, the special of the day which was sliced lamb with tomato and yoghurt (full of flavour!) and the meatballs. Each dish came with rice, cabbage, onions, etc. The servings were HUGE... if only we weren't going to the theatre after we could have had doggie bags! The entrees we had were the hummous, a mediterranean salad, stuffed vine leaves and calamari (tender as could be). Each entree could easily serve 3 people. Dessert was also a treat, with an almond pudding and a shredded wheat (rice?) pastry. What amazed me was the value. A prix-fix 3 course dinner with coffee was $18! A la carte was as reasonable. The servings, again, were HUGE. The service was friendly, helpful and very professional. Table cleaned between courses, new cutlery provided before each course, water glass always filled...if only there were more places like this in the city!

I found this place on MenuPages, and when I asked my friends about it they got really surprised that I don't know the best Turkish place in town. Since I was too busy to go to the restaurant I ordered delivery, and guess what? It was the fastest delivery I've ever seen! The delivery guy was so polite and the food was super delicious. Later I ate a dinner in the restaurant, and found out that they deserve their reputation for both delivery and restaurant service. A five star place! Check all the ratings and reviews about them hanging next to the door if you want to hear the same thing from critics... Do not miss this place! :)
