The Zagat Review
The “solid menu” offers “ample choices” for “any size appetite” at this East Midtown Turk, a “fairly priced” standby that rolls out the magic carpet to “lots of U.N. types” at lunch; a “relaxed” roof terrace easily trumps the “nothing-special” downstairs.

I took my mom here for lunch after a doctors appointment as we visited the old 34th location before which we liked, this place is nothing like the old place and we were not impressed one bit! - There was no one to greet you at the front door so we were just standing awkwardly and waiting on someone. No one came, so we just walked upstairs and sat ourselves. Also, it was so damn hot inside, I felt like the AC was running at a minimum and the carpets leading to the second floor looked like they were 100 years old. - We sat down upstairs, again no waiter comes to give menu. We had to call someone to get all that. Even when they came, there was no friendliness in the staff. Plates and glass were not properly clean so we asked to change. - When we were ready to order, again had to call someone to take order. There didn't seem to be a dedicated waiter for tables. - Finally get food - food is dry and bland...waste of $60. Even more than the food, I just didn't like the atmosphere of the place and their staff. I will not be repeating as a customer.

Looking to take someone out for a Turkish meal? Come here, it reminded me of my experience of having Turkish food in London. The staff were really friendly, attentive, and organized. get the lamacun to go....its a lot to eat!
