better than decent 2/25/2011

The food was good, fresh, but nothing to rave about. The flavors were a little on the weak side, but certain items like the lamb chops held their own. The service was great, and the ambience was welcoming and enjoyable. Not sure with the plethora of amazing restaurants in NY, that I will be returning very soon. more

Food was just average 2/7/2011

We were searching for a place to meet friends who were also visiting New York City. A good in-between spot appeared in the form of Pasha. We were all up for Turkish, so we made a reservation and hit the subway northward. First course, the Coban Salata (Shepherd's salad): chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, tender long green peppers, red onions and parsley tossed with extra virgin olive oil and vinegar. It was nice and refreshing, and whetted our appetites for the main course to come. For the main, I chose Tavuk Gogsu Sarmasi, which was a marinated chicken breast stuffed with rice, pistachios and currants, served on a bed of sauteed spinach with white wine tarragon sauce. The chicken was good, but not knock-you-on-your-arse, need-to-lick-the-plate-good. It was a little dry but the tarragon sauce helped with the dryness. Overall decent, but not really something that made me want to come back and try Pasha again. Our table split a dessert, the Kaymakli Kayisi (Poached apricots filled with creme fraiche, sprinkled with pistachios). I make this dessert often at home, and I am definitely biased but I prefer my own version of this dish. Our server was pleasant and helpful but the food wasn't good enough to warrant a return trip with all the other amazing options that are available in the city. more

hospitable employees. yikesss!!!! 8/8/2009

Pasha… I love Pasha restaurant. You can easily discover how Turkish hospitability is in there. So far I have dated 3 Turkish ladies from Pasha, and they really knew how to make people “happy”. Besides food and service is fantabulous. You will never forget… Pros: friendship, service, attention Cons: small dishes more

SIMPLY FANTASTIC!!! 7/25/2009

You cannot say that you've had Turkish food unless you've made a stop at Pasha. We started with artichoke hearts and lamb dumplings in yogurt sauce wich were very delicious! All of the meat, including the yogurt kebab, was fresh and tasty. They had a pretty reasonable wine list too. The service is excellent-our server was a very charming young Turk, who was very attentive to our requests. He was very knowledgeable about Turkish food and very fun to talk with. Well, worth trying out. Note:if you are really hungry be sure to order an app. Pros: the best Turkish food more

Beautiful Decor 7/13/2009

Not wanting to travel far, I took my wife to this little restaurant because it was conveniently located just a few blocks from our house. The food was excellent however the service was really bad. Our waiter seemed more interested in the party of ten (10) seated in the middle of the restaurant. He only came over once during our entire meal and that exchange consisted of a quick "Everything O.K?" without even waiting for a reply. We had to wait to order our food, wait for a glass of water and even wait for our check. Now I know why we passed this restaurant by all these years. Pros: Food, The lamb was excellent Cons: Service more

Good food but "Crappy waiters" 7/9/2009

Right after my last visit to Pasha I decided to write this comment down because I can't take waiter's nasty manners anymore. I don't usually write comments about restaurants in internet however the last straw pushed me to do this. Whenever I go to this restaurant waiters come to the table and talk like a robot without smiling and with a frown face.Besides every question I asked them make them angry and grouchy as if I don't have the right to ask questions about dishes on the menu. These incidents happen to me every saturday night I know it is the busiest day of the week but we don't deserve to get treated like animals. I guess due to my slight German accent lead them to add 18% gratuity on my check without asking. My attempts to talk to the boss or the manager prevented by these Turkish waiters. more

Good food, mediocre service 4/27/2009

Great Turkish food, almost everything we tried was delicious. Ambiance is pleasant and relaxing. Portions are somewhat small however quality is high. Service is mediocre: our server was always away, instead the busboy was reluctantly handling our requests. We had to ask twice for a change of plates and another dish to order. Pros: Food, atmosphere Cons: Service more

Very very good. Great lamb dishes. 6/14/2008

This side street restaurant is one of the best on upper west side. They have very good lamb dishes. Hunkar begndi is one of them which is my favorite. Cubes of braised lamb over eggplant puree, very delicious. Other must have at this restaurant is Manti, little lamb dumplings with yogurt. Great place with very friendly and genuine stuff. Everyone , manager, hostess, waiters and buspeople great you with big smile and make you feel like you are Sultan. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a great dining experience. Pros: Great lamb dishes. Very friendly people. Cons: Not enough outdoor tables. more
