Good people-watching, food's decent but takes 30 minutes sometimes. One major concern is the super faint ink on the bill. The best way to scam people is to give them a bill with ink so faint they cannot read each item. Guy needs to buy some ink; I have no idea what his problem is, He's been giving checks with... More

Good location, which is probably why this restaurant charges more than others as I t certainly wasn't on the food quality. My roast vegetables were disappointing. The "special sauce" they were supposed to be served with turned out to be yogurt. Or it was that night. I didn't find the staff courteous either. I think there are many better places... More

We were tired of too much walking,so we decided to stop here to take a rest. The prices were a little bit high,like most places in sultanahmet area(glass of wine 18 TL). The service was good. We ordered the mezze plate,and it was good but nothing spectacular. We enjoyed watching people by,as the restaurant its in a very busy area.

We went mid week for dinner,this restaurant is among lots others in the general grand bazaar area. We were sick of being harassed and opted for Pashas. The service was surly and slow .the food was very average quality for the price. We had a recommended steak dish and a recommended lamb dish ,both very average. The waiter knocked over... More

I came across Pasha by chance earlier in the day and saw they were showing a replay of a weekend Rugby World Cup game. Came back in the evening and enjoyed live games! Very friendly and welcoming, located in the beautiful Sultanahmet area, 1 minute from the Tram Station. Very reasonably priced as well.

Disappointing experience - probably the first one I have with Turkish cuisine, especially in Turkey. All four dishes we had was either too saucy or simply lacking taste. The bread made no exception! Not scoring it terrible only due to the vibrant relaxing atmosphere in Laleli, but don't be overtaken by this.

We tried the signature pitcher kebab. Very tasty. Definitely recommended. Its open air so you see the pitcher kebab ritual. The ambiance is very good. We went on a weekend night. There were local musicians playing songs. It was a fun atmosphere. The servers and the manager are very nice and friendly.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
