Turkuaz in Riverhead
Turkuaz moved into the old Hizir Baba spot near Atlantis (Aquarium). They glitzed up the place so it looks more like a restaurant and less like a take out joint.
Fabulous transformation!! Excellent food. Typical Turkish menu with some nice specials every day. Wraps, kebabs, gyros, felafel, hummus, babaganough, soups all fresh and tasty.
It looks like a family operation. The servers are very attentive.
They have a few outside tables where you can watch the river. Very nice!!
Highly reccomended for lunch or dinner.
I was there last week and it was very hot and damp inside. I was told that the air conditioner was broken. They stopped making the delicious Turkish bread because the do not have their oven any more. The food is still good, but they seem to have other issues. Maybe someone's misplaced idea about cost control.
