Toward the southern end of 34th Avenue, this place is often overlooked. Give it a try - you'll be pleased with the interesting menu & the well-prepared selections.

The location is quaint and the owner was absolutely lovely and sweet. The food was lukewarm and lacked flavor. It felt like we were eating leftovers. This place has a ton of potential but needs to work on execution.

This warm family run restaurant is the perfect night out to soothe your taste buds and soul. The mother daughter team spins up flavorful dishes and makes their guests feel right at home. My wife and I and another couple enjoyed Turkish wines, a variety...More

Very friendly. Good selection of Turkish dishes, Efes beer, wines from Turkey. I could make a meal of the appetizers, but the entrees were also yummy + I had to leave a little room for baklava. Tiny spot, reservations are wise, especially on a weekend.

Refreshing change from the overly oiled and Americanized 'Turkish food' found elsewhere in Seattle. The 'manti' was reminiscent of homemade Turkish food. Over time, we have tried almost all the appetizers - double yum! This restaurant is not as great as it once was 3...More

Description
Join us at Bistro Turkuaz for an evening of authentic Turkish food! From its roots in Central Asia, the Turkish cuisine became rich and varied, a reflection of the journey to Asia Minor and the great expanse of the Ottoman Empire. At our bistro, you will experience a flavorful culinary tradition with elements of Greek, Persian, and Middle Eastern dishes. Bistro Turkuaz also tells the story of a valuable Persian gem that was traded in the bazaars of Turkey in the 16th Century and then sold to Europeans by Venetian merchants. The French mistakenly named this blue-green gem turquoise, meaning Turkish. We invite you to share the colorful history and flavors of Turkish food with your friends and family in the warm atmosphere of the Bistro Turkuaz.
