    Absolute Top Value Place

    The place is really small and can accomodate ony about 2 or 3 parties of more than 2 people. However, three of us got there around 6:15 PM and were seated immediately and waited on promptly. We are not voracious eaters so we usually split one or two appetizers amongst the 3 of us. The appetizers in many restaurants seems to always consist of 2 or 4 of whatever it is so we do our best to divide them by 3. We got an order of stuffed cabbage leaves and an order of lentil balls and they brought us 3 of each which was nice. Both appetizers were very good. For entrees, two of us had the boneless lamb shank wrapped in eggplant and one had the roasted chicken. The dinners were delicious and the lamb was a better value than a regular lamb shank as it was all meat. The prices were very reasonable and the food was excellent. I rate this a top value place to eat and definitely worthy of repeating.

    Vegetarian letdown

    The "Vegetarian Stew" is just ratatouille the "Rice Pilaf" is just boiled rice - not what I wanted, ordered or expected.

    Really Nice Decor!

    I took my Turkish parents to this restaurant when they visited me in NYC last week and we had a great time. The prices are decent and the decorations are gorgeous which really make dining pleasant. The staff was really friendly and attentive and the food was warm and tender. I would definitely recommend the Hummus and Falafel plate as well as the pudding dessert with cinnamon on top. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, turkish or not. Lived up to my parents standards!

    Great but for one thing ...

    Had tabuli for appetizer, lamb casserole for entrée. Both were extremely flavorful and satisfying. Got comped dessert for agreeing to move tables to accommodate a large arriving group, which was very courteous. The kadayif was very sweet and rich, quite filling I quickly found out. Worse, though, was that it seemed to just sit in my stomach and cause much discomfort. My friend said the same of his baklava. Still feeling it the morning after, too. Maybe this was a coincidence, maybe we overate, but I would say to use caution nonetheless. I would definitely return, but I'd skip the dessert.

    Excellent Turkish food

    The restaurant is not a good place for a first date or to impress someone with the atmosphere. However, for New Yorkers to eat Turkish, this place is great. The food is authentic, fresh, tasty, and cooked right. The service is also very friendly and the atmosphere is the type of place you would go to with friends.

    Food & Service Excellent

    3 waitresses, a busboy and a roving maitre'd of sorts in a restaurants with about 15 tables equals good service--prompt, efficient, courteous. They'd have to be--there are many others waiting for tables. The food was fresh and well-prepared. I ordered lamb chops rare ($15) and got 3 rare chops on an abundant bed of rice pilaf with tons of chopped tomatoes and onions. I also had the mint and rice soup ($5) which was not overwhelming, but that's due to personal taste. One in my party had the lamb casserole which was nice sized with chunks of lamb, eggplant, tomatoes and other veggies. Instead of rice, she ordered a salad--chopped tomatoes and cucumbers in a fairly large dill salad. The other member of our party had lamb shish kebab. Both enoyed their dishes thoroughly. The bill with tip but only 2 sodas came to $58 total and that's with a slight price increase. Definitely a "must" to return.

    Can't go wrong!

    Had dinner at Taksim this past Friday night. Its a nice looking place, friendly people and atmosphere. The waitress was helpful and quick. I ordered the Lamb Adana kebab and it was juicy, tasty, served with a rice pilaf, the dish was great. FYI- It is BYO however, they now charge a $10.00 corking fee, so be careful of that. They have bottles of wine for $18 or so, might be a better bet to just order a bottle of wine there? Try this place, you'll enjoy it, the food is authentic, and not expensive at all!!!
