The word Akdeniz means Mediterranean, or the sea in Turkish so by knowing this, you’ll know exactly what to expect from this “jewel in the sea" of Midtown restaurants.
Akdeniz was opened two years ago by Mike Kocak, Murat Aktas, and Suleyman Yeniler. Each member of the trifecta brings something “to the table.” Mike is an established restaurateur, owning Sahara’s Grill, Sahara’s Turkish, and Pasam (in Brooklyn). Murat has worked as a waiter and manager in several restaurants in the city. He immigrated from Istanbul, Turkey in 1999, and works at Akdeniz for more than fifteen hours every day from nine in the morning until closing. Suleyman is behind the scenes producing the delicious cuisine and has more than seven years of chef experience.
If you visit Akdeniz on a weekday, especially for lunch, don’t mind the wait (as the restaurant is usually “filled to the gills”) because you’ll soon realize why this little place has such a following.
Octopus Salad—Lightly char-grilled octopus, tossed with tomatoes, onions and parsley in our special chef dressed on top of romaine lettuce
Mediterranean Salad—Lettuce, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, fresh mint, corn, parsley, green pepper, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil, feta cheese on top
Greek Salad—Grape leaves, olives, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, feta cheese, olive oil, and lemon juice
Eggplant with Sauce—Small cubes of fried eggplant, green and red peppers in a fresh tomato and garlic sauce
Skewered Ground Meat—Hand chopped beef and lamb seasoned with red bell peppers and char-grilled on skewers served with rice and vegetables
Chicken Shish Kebab—Marinated chunks of chicken, char-grilled served with rice and vegetables
Sultan’s Delight—A classic Ottoman dish made with smoked eggplant puree mixed with flour, milk and mozzarella cheese, served with chicken, or lamb on top
Baklava—Baked thin layers of filo dough stuffed with pistachios, flavored with lemon and orange zest light syrup

Decided to try Akdeniz because it was so close to my job. The lentil soup arrived cold and had an overcooked taste to it. I also normally enjoy stuffed grape leaves, but this version I wasn't too fond of for whatever reason.
On a plus, the food arrived really quickly.

I order here for lunch often. Very good food. I particularly like the hummus, lentil soup, and Mediterranean salad. Note that their falafel contains gluten.

Mediterranean salad was simple but so fresh and light

Great food. Favorite is chicken chops, always consistently made. Salmon can be a little on the dry side sometimes. Delivery is very quick, but to be fair my office is located on the same block so I can't speak to delivery times if located further away.

Love their Baba ghanoush! I've ordered just for that alone!

REVIEW OF DELIVERY EXPERIENCE: Food is good every time. Chicken Salad with order of Cacik is one of my go to delivery orders on seamless. HOWEVER, It can't be that, on a dry evening - rain excuse, the typically sturdy paper bag that is inside the plastic bag (typical delivery method) is so messed up and wet on the bottom from the food being tossed around during the delivery trip that the paper bag breaks when taking it out of the plastic bag. Happened to me TWICE already. One time the cacik all over the carpet behind my desk. Just earlier this evening all over the marble and shoes in the lobby of the office building.
I'm going to miss it but can't go back here. Can't have this happen a third time.

I only had the chicken shish kabob it is very good and more importantly their delivery guys came up to the office rather than make me come down which is a huge pet peeve of mine.

Fast delivery (Quicker than the estimate). Food arrived hot, and in a bag with many staples for safety, with the food in perfect condition (not squished). Tasty. Will order again.

This place has never disappointed me. I have occasionally ordered from here since 5 years ago, and I still order from them. Clean and tasty, not saggy nor oily nor too salty. And always fast!

I order from Arkendiz a lot. Their food is always good with very quick delivery. I particularly like the humus, chicken shish and great bread that comes with everything. Happy to recommend.

If they could only lower the min amount for delivery (that's why I give them 4 stars), I would definitely order from here more often. I'm crazy about their Greek Salad, and they have the best grape leaves I've tasted in Manhattan. Quick delivery. Great lentil soup.

This order was tremendously disappointing! The food arrived cold, falafel was soggy and the tahini bland. If Mediterranean food is really this bad it's no wonder my ancestors left.

I HATE when the delivery guy calls 5 - 10 mins before he is downstairs and I go down and have to wait for him to arrive (after my food was already late). That's the reason I'm giving 1 star.

Best Tarama for delivery. Delivery is always fast.
Posted a year ago by Nathan W.
Ordered food at 7:15 PM. I received a confirmation that my order was 'out for delivery at 7:50 PM.' At 8:25 PM, I called Akdeniz and they told me that my food was no longer coming because there was a problem in the kitchen. I was disappointed by the slow service and by the fact that I wasn't offered anything in compensation.

Good food, not too greasy. I ordered the Ground Chicken kabob entree. The bread and meat are the best part of the meal. The rice is basic and tasted like parboiled/boil-in-bag rice. The vegetables they gave me were shredded iceberg lettuce, half of a mushy tomato, half of a fire-roasted jalapeno pepper and some shredded, pickled red cabbage. For almost $20 an entree, they vegetable should have been better, like grilled seasonal vegetables or at least offer people some options.

This is the first time I've ordered from here and I couldn't have been happier! I got the grilled shrimp and they were so tasty and fresh. I was a little skeptical ordering shrimp from a place I'd never been to but it was definitely the right choice. The portions are large and delivery was very fast! Definitely will be ordering again! Thanks

The classic gyro platter is awesome. Worth the slightly higher prices!

Everything I have tried here is good. Their hummus is incredible - I have tried a hundred times to recreate it at home and there's just no way to compete. The lamb is also really good - not too fatty, and cooked just right. The wraps are fresh and everything is awesomely tasty. Also, I have put in really large orders for an office party and the food was delivered on platters and the presentation was great. Thanks, Akdeniz!

do not order delivery from here. delivery guy basically carried my meal upside down. the whole tin was bent and all the sauces were leaking everywhere.
Posted 2 years ago by Barry K.
Love the food, and have been ordering regularly for well over a year or two. Due to success of Seamless orders, prices have gone up 25-30% in 2012, with the most popular items. Owners should be made aware (through this review and others to come) that this has not gone unnoticed. We have been ordering less frequently due to the outrageous price hikes (now costs more than $20 per person with just one entree including tax and tip).

The food is good. On (salad) Mondays we order the Mediterranean Salad with chicken. It's a good start to the week. The amount of bread that they send along with the delivery is insane. Same goes for the utencils.
Regarding the other entrees: I wish they cut off the fish heads.

Akdeniz's food is the perfect combination of healthy and tasty.
The order took longer than we expected (1hr) but, I'm not marking them down for that as we ordered at 11:30am on a Sunday - to be expected.

will never order from here again

My Favorite Place !!
I got a green paper on the delivery bag today. It say's that Seamless Web selected them as number one delivery restaurant last February. I believe that they deserve more than that. Great food and great service all the time... If you want to try some Turkish food you definetly go there and check ...
Posted 4 years ago by Anthony G.
If you like lettuce and tortillas, order the lamb shish sandwich. If you like lamb and pitas, do not. Also ordered the red lentil soup - once I located a spoon to eat it with (only a fork, knife and chunk of stale bread were provided - maybe that's customary), it was...underwhelming.

I was expecting a lot better from this Turkish restaurant on the flavor of grilled lamb cubes since it had received good reviews a couple years ago. Lamb was extremely mild, to almost bland and tasteless. I ordered the kabob wrap which was also nearly void of any salad greens. Not worth money spent, but perhaps it was a bad day for this restaurant - might also be willing to give it a "2nd chance".
Posted 6 years ago by Maria H.
I love this place. We order at the office all the time. The servings are huge and you really get a lot for you money. Pretty fast delivery too.

Delivery was SUPER fast! Didn't wait more than 15 min. Portion size was great - I ordered the mixed cold appetizer platter and had plenty left over to keep for lunch the next day! The apps were delicious, everything was fresh and tasty, and the bread accompanying was good too - and they gave a good amount of it, enough for the large apps portion. Overall excellent experience, will definitely order from Akdeniz again!
