Pasha Turkish Restaurant Reviews
We found this place on a weekend trip to Houston and ate here three times! Absolutely the best food and the lentil soup is extraordinary! Service was fantastic, very reasonably priced for the amount of food. The meal starts with fresh bread and just gets better from there. I highly recommend!!!
I eat a lot of Mediterranean food. I’ve eaten lamb all over the world. The Koefta with cheese was freaking phenomenal. The lamb was so tender we could easily cut it with a fork. The lamb pizza was great, as well. This place just leaped into my top 3 Mediterranean restaurants and Top 50 restaurants for me in the Greater Houston area. If they had garlic sauce, it would push it over the top.
Food is definitely yummy! Place is cozy and awesome. Desserts were delicious. However try to get there 3 hours before their closing time so that you didn’t get rushed.
The food was great, we tried vegetarian eggplant stir fry and sauteed vegetables, both were very tasty! Unlike many middle eastern places, the quantity served here is not overwhelming (was just right), so I appreciate that! Overall definitely recommend to give it a try!
Came back again and got the beef shish kabob. The lunch special comes with some bread, a side, and a main plate.
the bread smell and tasted delicious. The owner told us it was freshly made. The beef was amazing and staffs were friendly!
Absolutely delightful! The Pasha Meze Platter is a must try (didn’t even get a pic, we ate it so fast!). All the appetizers are so good and this way you get to try them all! Lovely in house made bread and dipping oil. The yogurt kabobs (pictured) are delicious and tender and the sauce complex and comforting(we had them with lamb). Both times we’ve come during off hours so it was nearly empty and quiet with wonderful Turkish music playing softly. This great little hole in the wall is a must try!
Dinner comes with fresh bread and oil, coffee tastes great. Beef stew was underwhelming – beef is tough, small portion of dry rice. Lamb yogurt kebab was delicious! – very tender meat and yummy sauce.
My daughter has told us often about her love of this Turkish restaurant. Of course we had to try it. I highly recommend it as you may have noticed from the 5 stars.
A heavy bread is served with a well balanced dipping sauce; nicely matched. We ordered the Pasha Meze Platter which is a variety of what I assume are their appetizer favorites. Each item is distinctive and flavorful. Diners should be aware that some of the items, in my experience, are not the same as the “storefront” Mediterranean dishes you may be used to. Set that idea aside and enjoy what Pasha has prepared for you. Bizarrely, no one at our table was a fan of the Babaganush so my expectations were low. It is hard to describe how wrong my family is. Babaganush is creamy and delicious with what I can only describe as a slightly smoky flavor. I will have this again.
My daughter is a vegetarian and ordered her favorite, the Menemen. I had a bite of her sautéed tomato, onion, bell pepper, feta and scrambled eggs. Wonderful flavors and I see why it is her go-to. My wife and I shared the Pasha Mixed Grill Platter. It is a nice mix of Doner, Adana, Chicken Adana, Lamb Shish and Chicken Shish kebabs and served with rice. I am a lamb fan so we added the lamb chop. Again, each item is distinctive from the next and I’d be hard pressed to pick out my favorite from the great choices. My only disappointment was the size of the lamb chop but I absolutely cannot praise its flavor highly enough.
Thank you to Pasha’s staff and owners for an enjoyable evening with great service and great food.
I have been coming here for years and they never disappoint. The food is superb. I love the chicken adana kabob plate, the kebabs are perfect! Their appetizers are also good, I love the bread with babaganush! One of the best in town tbh. Lastly the dessert is outstanding. I love the rice pudding and my dad loves the flan type cake. The best part is ending the night with their calming tea in the beautiful cups! This is definitely a place I’d recommend everyone to check out!
Since my trip to Turkey I’ve been craving Kunefe. I searched for places in Houston were to buy it and Pasha came up. I was very excited to eat Kunefe again but I was a little disappointed. It was not the same as the one I tried in Istanbul. The Kunefe needed more cheese and the little bit of cheese it had I was not melted all the way.
I went for lunch with my family and the lunch was a little better than the dessert. My husband and I shared the Doner Shawarma Kebab (beef and lamb). The meat was bland. It was missing a lot of flavor. The rice was good (I love rice). We also share a Turkish pizza the Lahmacun. It was really good the meat was good. We ordered with cheese but they forgot to add the cheese. My parents ordered the Lamb Shish Kebab and it was delicious. They loved it!!! I tried some of the lamb and it was tender and it had flavor. We also shared one of my favorite Turkish appetizers Sigara Borek. They were amazing!!!
The owner was there he took care of us. He was very nice.
