Turks and Frogs or Pera?

Looking to introduce my parents to Turkish food....does anyone have an opinion on which is the better choice? P.S. My parents are young-at-heart New Yorkers, and I'm a downtown girl myself so I'm leaning toward T&Fs so far. Thanks!

  1. I have not been to either, but someone very recently posted a scathing review of a lunch experience at Pera.

    1. Turks and Frogs was ok, not great. The best Turkish I've found so far is Turkish Kitchen in Murray Hill. Not quite downtown but I've introduced many of my friends to Turkish food at the place and they now go back on their own. It's definitely one of my favorites.

      1. I agree w/ vinogirl that T&F isn't all that great. My favorite Turkish place is Pasha in the West 70s, though in the past year and a half, portion sizes and quality have gone down somewhat.

        1. T&F is just ok, nice wine selection, but no great shakes foodwise. very unmemorable.

          1. I've been to the T&F branch on Greenwich twice since the summer and enjoyed it very much. The lamb tandir entree in particular is a standout.
