Turkuaz takes its name from the turquoise colored sea in Turkey and Mediterranean and brings both a culinary experience and an ethnic one to NYC. We started twenty years ago, in the Upper West Side and moved to Midtown West in 2019. Our food is healthy and flavorful, with a lot of Turkish and Eastern Mediterranean delicacies, our service is friendly and professional and our atmosphere is romantic and transporting. Our location is ideal for theater crowd and tourists. Whether you are on your own and are looking for a quick bite, or you want to spend time with your sweetheart or friends, you will have a great time at Turkuaz. If you are one of our previous patrons, please come and check us out at our new locations. If we have never met, try us out, we have been in this business long and strong and have built a good brand. Enjoy!

We are pleased to find such a beautiful restaurant in the heart of Miltown Manhattan. We enjoyed the delicious food and the upscale elegant service. The appetizer plate was superb, all the choices were fresh, tasty and perfectly prepared,. The Chicken shish kabob was perfectly marinated, tasty and tender. My friend had the traditional dish called Sultan's delight with lamb, she loved it. Great value restaurant and very authentic taste. Make sure you leave some space for the desert.
It is a NO TIP restaurant. That makes it really more attractive and convenient.
We will come back. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

Arrived at the restaurant far earlier than our reservation because the play we attended didn't have an intermission. We asked if this was a problem and that we could return at the appropriate time. The hostess told my girlfriend and I that it was no problem and they could accommodate us. From the moment we entered the establishment to the moment we exited we had a delightful time. The waitstaff was most attentive. We both had a 3 course meal and it was absolutely delicious. This is the restaurant to attend if you are looking to eat authentic Turkish cuisine prepared in an exquisite manner, you absolutely will not be disappointed.

We went on Sunday 2/9 and ate an early lunch. It was a nice enjoyable dining experience. Food was excellent, service was attentive, ambience was calm and quiet as only a few tables were taken.

The food and atmosphere were excellent. Very authentic Turkish cuisine. Our waiter was actually too attentive however and we felt rushed even though we had a reservation. I am never happy when my entree arrives well before we finished our appetizers.

We loved the food! The spinach pastries and cheese pastries were great. Barbecued lamb meatballs and chicken shish kebab were also delicious!

It feels like you’re at a family dinner table. What a welcome we received from these complete strangers that run this restaurant! Excellent food, reasonable prices and it doesn’t feel like your typical theater district restaurant. We happened to be going to the theater this particular evening but as I have the misfortune to work in the area I’m very familiar with how hard it is to find a good restaurant anywhere nearby that isn’t a business lunch type of place and this place is excellent!!! Great for families or couples. Warm and welcoming vibe and decor

The "new" Turkuaz is as good as the original on 100th St. and Broadway. Food was just as good and the service was outstanding. Also like that it's a non-tipping restaurant. And....it's very convenient to theatre!

We remember Turkuaz from many years ago on upper Broadway. The food then was delicious and ample. The food now is still delicious, but the portions are much smaller and the price much higher. But it is authentic and fresh and the staff was wonderful.

We are glad to see Turkuaz down in my new neighborhood. When Turkuaz was on Broadway we used to dine in every week. The amazing food and service has been consistently outstanding and attentive. The delicious food is the best I ever had.
The decor in this location is a mix of traditional and contemporary that makes it cosy and attractive. I love their private room, which is cave downstairs . Will continue coming.

This is actually a great space and the food is good. Staff is attentive enough. Some plates are better than others. However, something is missing and though it’s nice that tip is included in the price (not tax) the prices don’t match the overall experience of the place. We’ve given it two tries but the last one may be it. I think they need a brunch/lunch menu for the weekends. Otherwise the dinner and weekend afternoon value experience isn’t there.

The food was terrible. Not at all authentic, not the right spices, and very bland. The serving staff were very nice but for the price I paid, I would rather cook it myself.
