One of the best restaurants. The kind and freindly staff lets you feel like you are special. Food is out of this world & pricing are nominal.

The food, ambiance, hookah, music and service was exceptional. Omar, my server was a great entertainer and a very nice guy. I recommend asking for him if you go there and order whatever he suggests. That guy was a gem!

We stopped in for lunch and ordered one of their special pizzas, which was splendid. Service was great friendly. Would have like a beer but this is a non-alcohol restaurant.

Centrally located and friendly staff. Great atmosphere! I had the Beyti and rice pudding with apple tea for dessert. My only negative is the time for desserts to come out - would have been excellent otherwise.

This is the best restaurant in the Sultanahmet area! We ordered the tomato soup and the icli kofta for appetizer and both were delicious! For the main entrees we ordered the hot clay pot and the sea bass and loved both! The staff is very friendly and the service was great. We would definitively recommend this place and will come...

Traditional Turkish food. Friendly to child. Location is close to tourist area but with reasonable price. Cold appetizer combination is high recommended. Good choice for travellers.
