Hanci remains one of our favorite restaurants in NYC and is our go-to place when we have an event at Lincoln Center. The food is simply delicious, and the presentation is wonderful. The Kofte are heavenly. The hummus appetizer is the real thing and is so satisfying and scrumptious. Hanci just delivers time after time.

I work around the corner from Hanci and make it a point to have lunch there at least once a week. I have my "usual" lunch preference but I've sampled the entire menu and haven't been disappointed with anything. The Coban salad and lentil soup are awesome starter dishes in addition to everything else they have to offer. Two thumbs up for Hanci

We shared the mixed appetizer plate and the mixed grill. Everything was very good and the service was efficient and very friendly. The kunefe dessert was terrific.

Was looking for a place to eat before a show at Terminal 5 down the block and stumbled upon this Turkish joint. Very nice. A bit fancy, but I was welcomed on a Sat night in my jeans and sneaks. Food was good and enjoyable. Has the lamb shank special, some grilled eggplant and hummus. Waitresses were very nice and talkative. Will return.

My lady friend and I felt scammed. We had dinner here because of the rave reviews. The food and the place itself are at best mediocre, The service was good. Directed by one review that the place had a byob policy, we were told when we arrived that this was no longer the restaurant's policy, that we would have to order wine from the menu. A few minutes later, the waitress returned to say that we could drink the wine we brought, but there would be a $10 corkage fee. We declined, but later ordered a glass of wine each. They nickel and dime you- A lamb dish in sauce that should have been served with rice, didn't have it included. When rice was ordered, they charged an additional a la carte price. Turns out that the "waitress" was actually the owner, The chef is her husband. There is much better Turkish food in Manhattan. Judging by the fact that there were only three tables occupied when we visited at 8:00 PM, this place should close soon.

I am from Turkey, and happened to try here with my husband in our quest to try and rate all Turkish restaurants in NYC. I must say Hanci made to the top three on my list. Food is great, place is very clean, people are very friendly. The owner came over to our table, and we chatted for a while - he was a chef for years in major hotels in the city. He really cares about his restaurant, and tries to deliver the best. Highly recommend Hanci.

I can't say enough good things about Hanci. The food is consistently wonderful, from appetizers to dessert. The service is efficient and friendly. I had the ground chicken on skewers; full of mouth satisfying taste and enough for dinner and lunch the next day. Excellent even cold. My husband had the mixed grill which is always a tasty array of meats, juicily grilled to the moment. Go and learn for yourself what amazing Turkish food tastes like.
