Üsküdar has been dishing out Turkish favorites on the Upper East Side for nearly 30 years, and its popularity recently allowed the restaurant to take over the space next door to the original location. Now, guests can choose between Üsküdar's two dining rooms, both of which share the same warm lighting, exposed brick walls and and rustic feel. Chef Ibrahim Ozdemir offers up a wide variety of traditional dishes, such as hummus ($9) and dolma ($10) with warm pita to start. For the main course, choose from kebab house–favorites like chicken adana ($18), kofte ($18) and musakka ($20), all served with a side of rice and vegetables. Seafood-inclined diners can sample tilapia baked in a sauce of white wine, lemon and garlic ($19) or grilled whole wild branzino ($25). End the meal with something sweet, like baklava or apricots poached in cream ($8 and $7, respectively). To wash it all down, the restaurant even offers ayran, a sour and savory Turkish yogurt drink ($3) that can be hard to find stateside.

I recently dined here and had a lovely experience.  The food came out hot, was delicious, very flavorful, and meat was tender. Service was very attentive too.  If you're looking for quality Turkish food, I would recommend these guys.
