The Fort Bend Foodie 05/15/13
Turquoise Grill & Bar
16019 City Walk, Sugar Land
Price Range: $12.50 – $16.00 entrees
Menu: The menu is quite lengthy, but is well categorized to make it easy to narrow your choices. Some items offered are stuffed grape leaves, hummus, tabuleh, fried calamari, smoked salmon roll, various marinated beef and lamb kabobs, Turkish beef meatballs, grilled pacific salmon, bulgur pilaf, jasmine rice, piyaz, baklava, and Kadayif, along with a nice offering of Turkish and American wines.
Food: The fried calamari was piping hot and crispy. The Turkish meatballs were generously portioned, quite tasty with a slight mint flavor, served with jasmine rice and roasted vegetables. The grilled salmon was excellent, cooked perfectly and lightly seasoned with a crisp sear to it. Every item ordered was attractively plated. The Turkish white wine was quite pleasing and similar to American Chardonnay, but smooth and crisp.
Service: The wait staff was attentive without being overly present, prompt and eager to please. The manager made a point to come ask how our service was, being cordial and accommodating.
Comments: The restaurant is in a prime location in Sugar Land Town Center. It is small, with a casual, relaxed atmosphere. On a Friday night it was not overly noisy, yet had a generous number of patrons present. It was easy to carry on a conversation without having to listen over loud kitchen noise or overbearing background music. The overall experience was quite positive. It would definitely be a place to return to.
Overall Rating: 4 stars.
