Pasha is a reliable place to have delicious Turkish food served in a welcoming yet elegant setting. I've gone there with groups of friends and other couples, and it's always been a hit. For me, it's an ideal choice for groups that include both carnivores and vegetarians; I'm told that the chicken kebabs are great, and for me the (vegetarian)... More

Great expectations, big disappointment. Not comparable to similar restaurants in Europe. Also prices are too high for the food offered.

Ate here several times, and just love Turkish food -- you can share appetizers. Portion size are generous, but not overdone. Of course, their lamb is superb

I eat at Pasha a few times a year and have always enjoyed the food and thought the service was fine, unfortunately my opinion has changed. The last time I was there I arrived about a little early for our reservation and was seated. However, no one came to ask if we wanted water or a drink till my dining... More

Dinner on Wednesday at Pasha's was excellent. Had a fresh fish and a bottle of wine for under $75. The fish was brazini - a Mediterranean white fish and they served it basted whole with fresh vegetables. The service was exceptional and they even de-boned the fish in at my table. It was enough food that I didn't have room... More

Pasha delivers authentic Turkish food in a nice setting with solid service. For an appetizer we shared the lemon artichoke and warm octopus salad amongst 3 of us. For the main my wife had the grape leaves stuffed with ground lamb and tomatoes over a yogurt sauce, while I had cubes of lamb stewed in a tomato based sauce over... More

When we visit our daughter on the upper West side inNYC we always make sure one of our meals out is at Pasha. Having lived in Turkey as a teenager I can find my favorite foods right here at Pasha. Great food, friendly service. I also like it because is quiet enough that we can visit with each other. Arrive... More

This is a very good Turkish restaurant. My wife and I sat outside where there's a narrow, but comfortable space. The food was very good, it exceeded both of our expectations. The service was good and our waiter was very friendly. Pasha is worth visiting.

Each time we visit New York City, this is our first choice to dine. Price is very reasonable and everything in the menu is delicious. We always have a couple of appetizer. Exceptionally good ones are Tarama, Mucver and Patlican salatasi. Among the entree, we like Tavuk Adana best. This time we tried stuffed chicken breast and marvelous. Their prefix... More
