I am Turkish and know a thing or two about Turkish food. Beyoglu has great appetizers (called mezes, similar to Spanish Tapas) and I crave for them all the time. Try eggplant salad, stuffed grape leaves or Spinach braised in olive oil. Coban salad is great, too. Their main course menu is limited. Turkish Kitchen would be a better place if you want more choices in main course. If you are vegetarian, mezes will be more than enough to satisfy you.

Some of the most mediocre Turkish cuisine. Tried it first with a friend for a quick drink at the bar and that was OK. Went back for dinner and was disappointed. Appetizer fried calamari very poorly seasoned. Kebab mains were OK just not worth the money even with the huge portions. The service was the best thing but even that was not spectacular.

Beyoglu is simply put the most delicious Turkish food in the city. I have been to Beyoglu many times and each experience has been wonderful. The food is incredibly fresh and flavorful. The hummus is so rich and smooth it's heavenly and the Ezme appetzier spread is out of this world. For entress I had the Doner Kebab which was super flavorful and my boyfriend had the Iskender Kebab which was packed with flavor and texture. The selection of Turkish wines are affordable (most glasses are $9 or less. Beyoglu is absolutely delicious no wonder why they are always packed!

Came here the other night with a friend who is a vegetarian and it was a great choice!! The hummus and bread are amazing! We both had that with another side dish instead of a main though the salads looked great! Very cute inside and great outdoor tables!

Life long upper east sider and this is my favorite Mediterranean place in the city. This place is ideal for splitting a couple of starters like hummus or spinach which are consistently delicious and extremely quick due to no preparation. But what would the hummus be without delicious bread to dip it into. There homemade bread steals the show. Three week old dog crap would taste good on it. I'm usually almost too full from the bread to eat my main dish. The swordfish is a large portion of fish for what is absolutely a fair price in NYC compared to other restaurants. It's a little strange with the sides for this dish they give you rice and potatoes. Make up your minds guys.... a little starch heavy. The swordfish really good though and it's one of the few places I still order it. Go get that bread!
