Great, but why do they play spanish music – I love this restaurant very much. They have great food, excellent and friendly service, very good cozy place, and very good looking men. One thing that I do not like and do not understand why the hell do they play Spanish music. It's a Turkish restaurant after all. I would even understand lounge or english music but not Spanish. Please stop Salsa music at this great place.
Outstanding service-even for large groups. – We held a work event there with over 20 people. We didn't have a final head count until the last minute and they were very relaxed and accommodating about this. We felt as if we had our own wait staff. We never had to ask for anything-they always seemed to be there with water, more bread and wine. The service was outstanding, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was cozy and comfortable. Everyone had a fantastic time-and didn't want to go home! I never write reviews but feel Pasha deserves the highest recommendation!
Very Good – I love this restaurant for few reasons. Very good food, very good & friendly service, and very attractive atmosphere. And you get all this with very reasonable price. One more thing, attractive people at the door. ;)
best staff,best manti and baklava – I have been at Pasha 2 times and never get regret.The first time was on Saturday,it was so busy we were be waited at the door for a while but when we sat and got the Manti , forgat all our long waiting time.The second time was on Tuesday ,it was the best time , not so crowded ,we were seated at the best table by pretty Turkish girl who has the greatest smile I have ever seen . Waiters are so kind and friendly ,You must make reservation ;otherwise you can wait at the door, but weekdays are the best .non waiting,the best welcomed and food.I will be there next wednesday and try tavuk gosu kablama and kaskul .
Dependable Turkish Restaurant on the Upper West Side – I've been to Pasha on several occassions and while the service is sometimes uneven, the food has been consistently good and satisfying. I've had the chicken stuffed with pistachios (?) and some of their lamb dishes. The desserts are very good and of course I recommend the Baklava. The wine list is decent (not the best) but it works. The waitstaff is generally friendly but needs more polishing. Please don't get me wrong, they are not rude in any way, but there are moments when they seem to rush in between courses and can't wait to take that plate away from you. They have a nice bar upfront that may be a good setting for cocktails/drinks even if you don't decide to eat there.
Romantic atmosphere and excellent food !! – This restaurant envelops you into a warm and exotic atmosphere the minute you walk through the door. You feel as if you are no longer in NYC and have been transported to Istanbul. The staff are well versed on the offerings and extremely attentive. All this combined with exquisetly prepared and presented food works well to create a wonderful dining experince. I highly recommend this restaurant.
avoid it by any means – as long time resident of the west side , i wanted to try this restaurant with 2 of my friends visiting from LA on a friday night.The whole nightmare started the moment we walked in .There
was no one at the door to greet and seat us , as i was trying to see if anyone can help us to seat , a middle eastern looking man with a thick 5 o'clock shadow came up to the front ,without a smile or saying hi, grabbed some menus and seated us .When i asked for a different table than the one we had been seated , he came back with the biggest attitude ,reluctant to give us an other table although the restaurant was empty.Since it was our first experience with this cuisine , i asked for some recommendations from our waiter .First he showed no interest in telling us a little bit about the dishes then, he pointed out a few of his favorite ones .As i was ordering my food , i asked a few questions about the wine list ; boy had no clue !!! Not only had he lack of english ,he didnt know anything about the turkish wines they serve at all!!!
The last straw on the camel's back was the little mickey m-ice we all saw peeking at us around the corner by the flowers in the main dining room.By that time i had already made up my mind that i wasnt going to stick around for dessert.Even though it took more than 10 minutes to get my waiter's attention to get the check ,we were finally out of this place and I AM NEVER GOING BACK!!! if you are smart , you would do the same
Great pre-fixed menu, decent service, great food. Attractive decor, intimate setting – Went here on a lazy Sat afternoon looking for a place to have lunch. We checked out other restaurant menus along the way, but wanted to go somewhere we could sit outside w/o being in a high traffic environment.
Service was pleasant enough and got what we needed.
What was fantastic was the food. It was served promptly on cute clay dishes, though some were chipped it just added to the rustic feel. All three of us ordered the pre-fixed, shared a bottle of wine, and enjoyed this fantastic meal for $130 including tip! For three people to get a very tasty three course meal that offered a variety of (choice of salads, hummus...etc. for apps and different types of chicken, lamb or fish as entrees) options, it was a great deal. The portions were just right and I didn't feel hungry or overwhelmed by meal.
In addition to the food, I really liked the setting. When you walk in, there is a dimly lit bar that leads to another room. It felt like you walked into someone' livingroom. It was great catching up with my girlfriends over a nice meal, a good bottle of wine, in a setting where it wasn't noisy, we weren't rushed, and had a chance to enjoy the sun w/o all the sidewalk traffic. This is nice for a small group, but do not recommend for groups over 4. The outdoor terrace will not accomodate.
Worth the price any day! – I discovered Pasha several months ago with a friend and we have gone almost weekly except during the summer. We LOVE the food, expecially the Menti, calamari and the baby lamb chops are to die for. Our favorite waiter Edu is a doll, very attentive and friendly (and cute too). We've tried a few others but keep going back to Pasha.
Food is ok – I like Turkish Food.
This my first time at Pasha. Food not great but its ok. But Service was terrible, Very slow.
And price is over value for two persons dinner $ 90 ...?
