Great Turkish Food & Great For you – Our small UW Alumni tour group visited Turkey for two weeks enjoying deliciously rich and healthy Turkish dishes across the country. We held a reunion at Bistro Turkuaz where the food was even better than what we had in Turkey. Each course was perfectly prepared with a variety of tastes: soft warm pita with dips, hummus, olives; marinated carrots, dolmas, fresh green salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, berries, olive oil; rice, tabbouleh, giant kabobs of deliciously seasoned beef, lamb, shrimp and traditional meats followed by bakalava for dessert and Turkish tea. The chef tells us that she changes the menu to include other favorites. Everyone was personable and the evening was spectacular.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Nestled into a tiny, narrow space in Madrona, Turkuaz makes do with what they’ve got, transforming the hallway into a funky yet intimate dining space. One might think that half of the decorations were left over from a previous incarnation as a French bistro, but other parts are distinctly Mediterranean, far more appropriate for the Turkish cuisine being served up. The menu hits all the usual suspects of a Mediterranean bistro, but it is the things that are different that really pop. Branch out and try the many dips and mezes that you might not have heard of, and you’ll be rewarded for not sticking with the basic hummus and pita plate. The skewers come with an enormous amount of food, with various salads, dips and tabboulehs, though they do lack the warning you would want—the beautiful, sword-like skewers are scalding hot when they arrive at the table. Embrace the tiny nature of the place, sit back with a bottle of wine and be sure to enjoy a few Turkish delights to end the evening.
