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

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.

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.

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.

The portions are huge, the food is fresh and the delivery is always fast. The pictures on the site are true to form. They use wraps (instead of pitas) for their sandwiches, which I am not a big fan of, but all in all it is a great place!

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 3 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.
Posted 3 years ago by Jonathan S.
Really good food (i am not Turkish) at reasonable prices. I order from them often (my favorite is the Sultan's Delight). Today I decided to write a review becuase initially they messed up my order (I ordered lamb and i got chicken) but they promptly sent me the correct order and a free dessert :). I've just become a loyal customer :)
Posted 3 years ago by Valentin C M.
I had the chicken kabob platter, lamb gyro, and salad. The side bread that they give you is warm, crusty and better than the usual pita halves places normally give. Chicken kabobs were fresh and lean (white meat), the rice pilaf was flavorful. Included picked red cabbage and slided onions which gave an interestig contrast to the kabobs and an alternative to salad. They were fast (20 min) as well. If you feel like eating Middle Eastern for lunch, this should be one of your options. Would definitely get again!

This was outstanding. We ordered babaghannous and it was delicious, served with fresh bread to die for. Barbecued meatballs and chicken Shish kebab was also fresh and tasted like it came right from the grill. The Mediterranean salad was also fresh, crisp and delicious. We ate like kings for under $45 for two. We love this food.

Good food and decent portions. Better quality and larger portions than most delis in the Rockefeller center area. The gyro sandwich, grilled chicken kebab sandwich, Hummus, red lentil soup, and homemade bread are excellent. The gyro sandwich needs a little more salt, but its better that they keep on making it as is, and put the salt on yourself. They used to make a good yogurt sauce but its too watery now.
The lamb kebab sandwich doesn't taste enough like lamb for me. But overall this place is an excellent choice.

I want to give this place more than 5 stars - it was absolutely off the charts!
We took a chance ordering delivery to our room and boy, were our socks blown clean off! We started with the Greek Salad (grape leaves, olives, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, feta cheese, olive oil and lemon juice)and Lebni (thick home made yogurt with walnuts garlic and dill). Both were great but the Lebni tasted better than crack - I couldn't get enough. I had serious thoughts of hoarding it as soon as I tasted it, but alas in a hotel room there's nowhere to hide.
On to the main course, Grilled Salmon (grilled fillet of wild king salmon served with arugula and shredded carrots). So simply prepared and yet it tasted amazing.
For dessert, Rice Pudding (home made baked creamy casserole rice pudding with cinnamon). Since it was baked and thus had a texture similar to flan, the beau wouldn't touch it. Hmmmm, more for me! It made for a great breakfast the next day as well.
Can't recommend this place enough, GO! GO! GO!

I must have ordered over a dozen times from this place and the food never fails to impress me. My 2 favorites are the Chicken Shish Kebab platter and the Greek salad, and if order a side of chicken, they REALLY add chicken, lots of it! The food always tastes delicious and fresh and the delivery is pretty quick. I like the food from this place so much that I actually took my husband there for dinner and he loved it too. The could work on lowering the minimum delivery from $15.00 to $10.00 though!

This is the best, freshest Middle Eastern food I have found from about 6 other "middle eastern" restaurants mid-town. Perfect roast eggplant salad (and the Babaganooj was very good, too) and an excellent chicken kebab sandwich. They have dishes (lebni, etc.) not typically found elsewhere.

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 5 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!
