We have visited the restaurant more than 20 times since we first dined there in April. We have tried many different dishes. All I can say is that every dish we tried was delicious. Yummy!

Everything we had was amazing! I highly recommend for lunch or dinner. I am Turkish and have a high standard which Truva met. The service and ambiance were both great too. Definitely will be coming back and have already told friends.

The food is really good. I love the place. They need to work a little bit on the bar in terms that the drinks take way too long to be ready. But the rest is excellent!!

First experience with Turkish food. VEGETARIAN MOUSSAKA was the best item or maybe the KANZANDIBI, Great service.

The redesign of the old space is very nice. We went on a Friday night with reservations. The service was harried and we were always in need of something. Everything is good but nothing is exceptional. Babaghanoush, hummus, tabouleh was good. The pita is think and cut into slices, tastes more like bread than pita. The food at Ameers is better but there is no ambiance.

We dined at Truva as a birthday celebration. It was our first time there but certainly won't be our last. The cuisine was delicious and authentic and well priced. The service was impeccable - our server was professional, attentive and charming. The ambiance is also wonderful. There is ample parking which is a nice surprise for intown dining. Truva is now on our list of favorite restaurants!

At this point we are regulars. We love the food. It is the real thing!! They make everything themselves including the delicious and addictive bread and the baclava. I definitely recommend it.

Great addition to Virginia-Highland. Positives: Excellent service. Good array of meat and vegetarian options. Don't fill up on the bread, which is easy to do. Really good babaganoush and humus. Lamb kebabs were wonderful - tasty, cooked to order. Negatives: A bit pricy. Parking lot will soon charge for parking, don't know if Truva will provide validation.

We shared the grape leaves and I wished I hard my own order as they were so tasty. I had the vegan stuffed eggplant which I thoroughly enjoyed. My husband had the eggplant lasagna and could not finish it all as it was a generous serving. My friend had the lamb kabobs and said he would order it again. Our young male Server was very friendly and paced our ordering and meals well, and did not rush us. I look forward to returning.

Fantastic food. Terrific specialties like grilled octopus and great versions of old favorites. Their gyro meat is homemade every day and will now be your gold standard. Tastes like gyro sirloin. Delicious.

We had a great meal in a pleasant setting. We were glad to be able to talk to each other. Challenge was parking. You must pay for parking after 5:30 pm. I am told there are codes that the restaurant can offer to customers. The staff at Truva were not aware of this possibility.

Ate on patio to avoid noise inside. Very pleasant. Lamb chops extraordinary. Service needs improvement. Was not crowded so no excuse for drinks arriving late, or items forgotten. Disappointed with parking situation. Menu extensive and distinctive.

The food that we ordered was great. The drinks were alright, didn't leave an impression, but still good. The restaurant is tastefully decorated. The best part of our experience, however, is Mehmet our server. He was very polite, attentive without being intrusive. I am definitely coming back to this restaurant

I’ve been to this new location twice and had very different experiences! On the first visit, the food was outstanding, but service was a little off. On the second visit, the service was solid (albeit not outstanding), but the food was mostly blah.
I love the original Truva in downtown Atlanta and have lunch there often. So I hope this new location works out its issues and becomes as great as the original. I’ll give it a few more tries.

Truva tries hard but doesn't deliver an exceptional experience for a premium price point. Service is fine. And the food has some interesting flavors, but it seems to be lacking refinement. Appetizers are a missed opportunity. The portions are quite small for the price. In general, this sentiment can be echoed across the menu. "Value" is not a word that comes to mind when thinking of Truva.
