This was my first visit to Hunkar restaurant. I had heard a lot of good things about the food, the cleanliness of the restaurant, and the friendly owners. So, I had quite high expectations. We found a parking spot right in front and walked in through the open door. Front dining room with white crisp table linens was quite inviting.... More

Family run restaurant that I have been visiting with my family since it opened in 2003. I cannot compliment the food and service enough. It's byob , the appetizers are fresh and amazing and the mixed grill is amazing. It's a hidden gem.Authentic, reasonable and delicious food.

We used to live in East Rutherford and we frequently this restaurant. Most of their appetizers are vegetarian - and I recommend getting the platter. You will not find falafel here, just FYI. There are many more entree options for meat-eaters, just one veggie entree. Their bread is fantastic! This is a family owned business - family members cook and... More

One of my customers has been bugging me for two years to go to lunch. So we went Wednesday. Late lunch. We sat "out back" in their little enclosed deck with a great view of the NYC skyline over the Meadowlands. Since the whole place is staffed by an extended Turkish family, I asked him to order. No idea what... More

Was surprised to see the restaurant almost full inspite of a very cold winter evening with snow banks still on its street. You can always tell a good restaurant when its own people (Of Turkey origin) patronize the place. Had the panned eggplant and chicken Shish kebab and was not disappointed. Would go back to try their other dishes.

Eight friends went to Hunker last night for dinner. This was not the first time that individual members of the group had been to this restaurant so we were fully aware of the high quality of the food. We were not disappointed at all. We started with Shepherd's Salad and moved onto hummus, stuffed zucchini, and fried Calamari. All were... More

We were very disappointed with the food was just fair but the service was very slow and inattentive. There were several large parties so other tables were being ignored

Our dinner experience is very good. The place is low key and friendly. There are street parking even on Friday evening, which is a real treat for those of us traveling from Manhattan and Westchester. All appetizers are great and we like Calf Liver a lot, and the Zucchini Pancake is a must try. We order a bunch of appetizers... More

Very impressed. Wow. Excellent food, excellent value. An extensive menu. The service was good, polite, attentive but not overbearing. I ordered Lentil Soup and a chicken, yogurt dish - excellent. I can't wait to go back and explore other items on the menu and I'm looking forward to introducing a few friends to Hunkar. I really like seeing so many... More
