Doesn't sell flowers anymore, but great selection of restaurants in a fantastic environment. Just find a spare couple of seats and squeeze in. If you're lucky you'll get a seat under the glass atrium and cupola. Gets busy, but prices are faırly standard for Istanbul. Just off Istiklal right opposite Galatasaray High School.

If you are looking for a great place to sample and buy Turkish delight at a good price, come to Cicek Pasaji. It is also a great place for a quick coffee mid-shopping day. When it comes to food, though, skip the pricey restaurants in Cicek Pasaji and head a bit further down Istiklal for some Turkish baked potatoes (kumpir).

We visited last night after flying in from AU. The area is alive,cosmopolitan with people everywhere. I would personally walk thru and not stop for food as the mixed grill was ordinary, the calamari small for 28TL . what really saddened me was the bill was nearly illegible and I had to pick up the boss on the 'extra' 10...

It's an unassuming little passageway that you may miss if you aren't looking for it. It's pretty to look at and sort of neat, considering it looks like the exterior facade of an old and charming building, except it's incorporated indoors. Great for pictures, but don't eat here or you'll be ripped off.

impressive building We ate at the restaurant on the right (can not remember name), poor service, once you have booked forget you are there. Until you request an account. A small dose and high price, average quality food.

Nothing to see, it's just a very high price restaurant, the food isn't bad but it's very expensive, you can have much better food at half price in any another restaurant in the same street

Nice and bright galery on Istiklal Caddesi filled with restaurants. We ate at Kimene restaurant and had a perfect meal : fresh seabream.
