Time Out says

Having kept good folk fed on the Upper East Side for more than two decades, it's safe to say that A La Turka know what's up. This Mediterranean joint is somewhat a kebab factory, but in a good way. Rather than churning them out for the inebriated masses, the chef pays much care and attention to the extensive menu, which features 20 different varieties of kebab.

Get grilled chicken, lamb, beef, salmon, shrimp, trout and more in koftes, shish, adana (hand chopped with rice and spices) or village style (includes a whole small chicken). For the vegetarians, there are meat alternatives by way of falafel, lentils and zuchini.

If you can't decide what to order, opt for the small sharing plates to have a bit of a selection. And don't forget to try the unique Mediterranean wines, which are best enjoyed on Saturday nights when the belly dancers and live bands show up.
