We have been to Turkey and loved the food there. Aba did not disappoint. No alcohol served. No big deal. BYOB. they are very accommodating. Food was fresh and excellent. We had a dinner of appetizers. Were great. Red bean soup. Stuffed grape vine leaves. Tabbouleh. Red bean cakes. Falafel. Cucumber yoghurt dish. All superb

Many Arabic people plus locals. Family run. Well staffed. Very energetic and responsive. Both thumbs up

We wanted to try something different and stopped here and were glad we did. The service was excellent as was the food. Recommend the grilled whole Branzini. We will return when we are in the City again. The restaurant is BYOB which is rare in NY.

We were a large group, and the service was excellent. Waiter very helpful and attentive.
The food was lovely, we all enjoyed our meals-recommend the various kebabs and also the calamari.
Its BYO, which makes the meal prices very good value, especially for the location.

The food was delicious and plentiful. Be warned, they do not serve alcohol, but it is BYOB. That was disappointing, I wish we would have known this beforehand. The service was great until they got a bit busy, them we were waiting for a bit for service.

Was looking for a light lunch on a hot and humid day in the city. We ordered a mixture of cool appetizers. Servers were pleasant and the food pretty authentic. I have worked and socialized with a number of Turkish people and the food was just as I recall it from visits to their homes. The restaurant is open all day and we were there early afternoon so the place was fairly quiet and service attentive. My only criticism was that, on such a hot day, the aircon could have been set cooler.
