Wednesday: 8:30am – 10:00pm

Friday: 8:30am – 10:00pm

Saturday: 8:30am – 8:00pm

But you can probably find more relevant information from Turkish Airlines:

The food selection included a mix of self-serve buffets, live cooking stations where you could custom order, and open kitchens where dishes were being prepared, and you could serve yourself.
Interesting that TK is offering a buffet with open serving dishes as that is in direct violation of Virginia law under the declared state of emergency. Wonder if that remains.

I've noticed a post in the UA forum that only pre-packaged food is available at the IAD lounge but that poster mentioned that the offering were still better than the United Club.

See this trip report on another website to see the morning offerings in the Turkish Airlines lounge in IAD. It's definitely better than the UA Club over there, however, no hot food available according to this report.

Wanted to bump this thread to give my key takeaways from a March visit to the TK lounge at IAD.

- all pre packaged foods.

- bar was not open while I was there and a section going upstairs was roped off.

- nice views of planes at the gates by the window.

- Glad I came here to grab a sandwich because UA didnít cater enough sandwiches for first class passengers on my transcon flight.
