Great Turkish food. Authentic! – My husband is Turkish and our second date was here. So this place holds a special place in our hearts. Plus, we love Ayse, the owner. She is a great, strong woman and and makes super delicious authentic Turkish dishes. We love what she has done with the new place. Plus, the fish is great and so much more healthy! My husband loves the Turkish doner (gyro meat which is real lamb like in Turkey not mystery meat like in American pizza shops). Cupra is a really nice, light Turkish fish. One of my favorites there and so is the chicken shish kebob. But you have to save room for Ayse's desserts! Her baklava is hands down the best we've had...even from top baklava shops in Turkey. :) Turkish baklava is nice and light. Bellydancing and the Turkish band are nice to see there too. It's a nice clean, place and good food. Food takes a little longer to come out...but that's because it's real fresh food, not frozen and it takes time!
turkish wine????? – tuerkey is not a wine country.food okey to those in town.but price and service very bad.asking way to much for a food that is in turkey allday food.dessert was probley the best of all.rice puding.one more thinking i want too add.go down with your price.thats here is philly not antalya.......keep it in mind.and philly,s dont deserv that.
Not Very Good – I went here on a Saturday night with my boyfriend. Our waitress literally said two words to us the whole night. She walked up to our table and just stood there instead of greeting us, it was very strange. The food was okay. Nothing great. The lamb was very tender which was great, but otherwise everything was very plain. Nothing seemed to have any flavor and it wasn't presented in an interesting way. It wasn't bad, but when I go out to eat I like it to be really delicious and interesting, something I don't feel like I could make for myself. I just did not feel that way here. The service was really slow too and there were only two other tables besides our's with people seated, so I did not understand why. It wasn't a terrible experience, but I won't go here again because it wasn't a good experience. I was really disappointed.
Konak is Delicious! – I have been enjoying middle eastern cuisine for many years now. I had my first meal at Konak this past weekend and was very impressed. the wine was smooth and the service exceptional. the appetizers were delicious - i had the best grape leaves i have ever eaten! My entree was poounded filet mingnon that was cooked to perfection. the meat was tender and perfectly seasoned. I do not live in the philadelphia area anymore, but will be returning to Konak. the atmosphere, service and food all exceeded my expectations!
what a waste – The owner was so rude. Prices are so high.
If I didn't know Turkish Food, I would think, Turkish Food is not a good food.
But it is not. Only in Konak.
Delicious and entertaining – I would highly recommend going on a night when there is live belly dancing. It makes the meal that much more interesting. The food was fantastic, I thoroughly enjoyed everything with the exception of the dessert. There's a traditional Turkish custard which I had ordered. I had tried it elsewhere before and really liked it, but here I was disappointed. It gave off a bit of a burnt sugar taste. Other than that though, it was a good experience.
Chicken Topkapi to die for! – I love this restaurant. I loved in in Voorhees, NJ and followed it to Philadelphia. The food is delicious, the service is great and very friendly. It has free parking also. The best dish to get is the Chicken Topkapi. I could live off of it. It is one of my favorite dishes not only at Konak, but out of all the restaurants I've been to in my life. I highly recommend Konak.
GREAT PLACE for any night of the week!! – This is a GREAT restaurant! We went for the Happy Hour Special and you can't beat $2 beers/$3 martinis/$4 glasses of wine. The apps were also great, the Borek was great, not too heavy or greasy. The staff is super friendly and they sell great jewelry in the restaurant!. This would be a great place for a group happy hour or a date.
PLUS: They also have a parking lot that you can park in for free after 5pm!
Try it on Tuesdays – Everything I've gotten here has been quite good. If you're not sure what to get, go on tuesdays because they have a bunch of different items from their main menu for $2 for small portions so you can order a bunch of stuff and see what you like. Even the beers are $2. I found several menu items which have become favorites that I wouldn't have ordered otherwise.
