The staff was so welcoming and kind. The hookah was the best I had in Istanbul (and there's a lot of hookah in Istanbul lol). The food was to die for and tasted really fresh.

Highly recommended place to eat. The food is lovely, the staff is super friendly and entertaining and it's a very cozy place. The clay pot kebabs are especially fun.

I went to Cafe Rumist with my son. We were warmly welcomed and the staff were happy to explain the dishes. The shared clay pot (a speciality of the restaurant) was fantastic.

I have to say that me and my stepmom were looking for a place to eat, and we could only find some noisy restaurants with a terrible loud music, until we found Rumist.
