This restaurant is overpriced for food that is barely mediocre. The only thing good here is the warm bread and olive oil. Lamb is over cooked. Chicken is not well seasoned ed. Wait staff is brittle and surly. Stay away!

Service by one of the waiters was exceptionally poor, even hostile. He was condescending, dismissive and deliberately rude (he's about 5'4', has black hair, a mustache and appeared to be in his late 20's).

Extremely unprofessional; he threw the book with the receipt on the table and was so condescending. As many other reviews mention, the staff is unfriendly and virtually all male.

Mediocre food, reasonably priced, fine location. Awful service. Do not recommend.

I'm a regular at Pasha and I've enjoyed the quietness of this restaurant for years now. I sometimes meet neighborhood people there and often bring my ELDERY client for dinner. Tonight after my client left the restaurant the owner very rudely approached me and accused my client of having an offensive odor, which is untrue. My client and I spent the day together and this is the second restaurant that we have eaten at. Besides my client is very clean and I would have noticed an odor. Then I remembered that my client had left for half an hour and returned with a plant that had a very strong fragrance that the owner obviously mistook for stench. The owner lied that my elderly client had sat around for an hour smelling up his restaurant and told me if it happens again he couldn't return. Needless to say, I will NEVER step foot in Pasha again.

Enjoyed dinner here recently. I was seated in a small room off to the side which was quite cozy. I found the prices reasonable and the food delicious. I chose the prix fixe menu - soup, chicken breast stuffed with currants and pistachios over a bed of spinach along with dessert. The wait staff were friendly and attentive.

We came across this restaurant when looking for somewhere to eat on New Year's Eve 2018, before going to watch the midnight fireworks in Central Park. We were very lucky to find this lovely Turkish restaurant, and on top of it all, enjoy exotic dishes and good Turkish beer without breaking the bank. And of course we shared our dishes. A nice find!
