Situated across the Hudson from Riverside Church and Grant's Tomb you get a great view looking down the river to the City and up to the George Washington Bridge. We sat on the deck, right on the water, but there are plenty of tables inside when it's not as warm outside. We had a large selection of dishes. I am... More

You can have your authentic turkish meal while watching a great NYC skyline. Staff is good and the decoration is very good inside. If you choose the deck you can eat your delicious meal above the Hudson River. I also recommend the live music event on saturdays. You can dance and have fun in turkish style.

Had a great time here, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the food is really good. I had some turkish meze and the kids had turkish kebab. Both meze and kebabs were delicious. mezes were coming with fresh crispy turkish pide. the meat was tender. outdoor seating was amazing with a spectacular manhattan view and a nice breeze by the river....

So it's Turkish food, great, it's like as inventive as an American cheese burger. Fallafel....wow. Not a place for a foodie. Turkish meatballs....cutting edge.

Very nice restuarant right on the Hudson ( literally). You can sit on their deck, enjoy your meal and take in spectacular views of Manhattan. The food is fresh and well prepared and well priced considering you have a million dollar view. Ample parking.

Unfortunately neded to go to Edgewater to attend a funeral. After the service decided to go to the small mall attached to the hotel, Comfort Inn at Edgewater. Walked by this restuarant and peeked in to check it out. The owner Shanhai'd me and wouldn't let me leave stating this was one of the best Turkish restaurants on the Eastern... More

this restaurant is situated litterally on the Hudson River, in the Edgewater commons. The view is nice, the service is not really. The waiters are very unorganized and the food takes forever to come. Plus, the quality of the food is very blind. They need to change the staff and the chef to make this restaurant successful.

I was so excited to see a restaurant that served authentic Turkish food, unfortunately, this place was not good. Sure, the views along the river are nice, but I would prefer eating delicious food in a hole in a wall. My husband and I ordered the lamb and chicken kebabs, respectively. The lamb kebabs were on the specials board and... More

My friends and I travels quite a lot enjoying new restaurants, this one is a Joke! $17 for a chicken kebab ( some chicken cubes tasteless) with a spoon of rice you need to add $2 ,... More
