Bistro Turkuaz

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.

"What a great find this was. I will definitely be making the trek from Magnolia time and again. The food was remarkable and fit the bill for vegetarian and carnivore alike. The wine was lovely and the service excellent. The owner stopped by the table to greet us and answer any questions.
Delightful."

"We learned that we love Turkish food on a family trip to Istanbul. Thus we were most excited to discover authentic Turkish food not far from home. Everything was delicious. We tried almost every mezzo and the kebab sampler as well as both kinds of manti. The owner was our server and we felt like we were welcomed into a family. It was delightful."

"We enjoyed our conversation with the (co-?) owner whose family owns and runs the restaurant (works the kitchen and provides the meal service and recommendations). The interior temp was cool for our taste, but the accommodating server provided a space heater to help. We thought the Turkish wine was "so so" (and pricey) and some of the entrees seemed a bit steeply priced for my taste, but it's a small restaurant with just a few tables so the prices are understandable. Unfortunately the front table had four friends who were VERY loud and that influenced our enjoyment of the experience."

"The restaurant is a small family-owned place. As we walked in we were warrant greeted by the owner, who also served the food. Her son is in the kitchen, doing the cooking. The food was delicious, although the menu is small. I had a shishkabob, which I enjoyed. The stuffed grape leaves were a tasty appetizer."

"The place was recommended by a family member. We have experienced this type of food in our early family life. The restaurant is family run. Excellent quality Turkish food. Extensive list of appetizers. The dolmes were delicious, some of the best that I have ever had. Wonderful lamb and kefta(meat)."

"We loved the kofte. It tasted as good as the original I got in Turkey. The wine left something to be desired. Nothing good by the glass. I suggest they add a rich Cabernet from southern Washington or California to go with the food."

"Four of us, with diverse food interests were all very happy here with the menu, ambiance, staff, service, and best of all, the dishes we chose. The staff were accommodating and the chef flexible. One of us had several appetizers with a sauce from an entrée on the side--no problem. Another person had an ingredient removed from a dish--no problem. Beautiful water carafes and unique metal skewers are example of attention to details that add pleasure to the meal. The authentic dishes were all delicious and as described. I highly recommend this small restaurant in Madrona."

"We live up the street, so we've eaten there many times over the years. It's a Turkish restaurant, so there are lots of good lamb dishes as you would expect. But the real finds are on the appetizers list. Pancar is a great beet dish, beautiful and very tasty. The Mucver - zucchini pancakes - are really good, and a friend of ours who grew up eating Turkish food in his Sephardic household really enjoyed them. There's an entree of fish wrapped in parchment paper that's really good. Highly recommended."

"Too much price for what you get. I got the chicken and lam skewer, not good at all. The price was twice as much as the lam only. If you pay twice the price for a mix skewer, you should at least get two skewer and not only one half and alf."

"We've been there 5 or 6 times in the past three years and we can't wait to return. The lamb shank is so good, as are all the dishes. I'm not a dessert lover, usually, but the baklava is best I have ever eaten. Light, not too sweet, and melts in your mouth."
