Looked very appealing but smelt of toilets and disinfectant. Very overpriced. Go to the cafe next door, up the road, with a sweet shop attached..this may not look as nice but the food and service is superb!

Its a nice restaurant just near Topkapi Palace. Costly though. You may go there for the nice ambiance and good food.

Supposed to be the house speciality, basically it's lamb hotpot and not that good a one. The lamb was vey fatty. The... More

Spent 10 days in Istanbul and were disappointed by our first 2 nights eating out; then discovered The Han Restaurant where we had most of our meals for the rest of our stay. Traditional Turkish cuisine combined with most advanced hospitality technology. Staff treated us like pashas and catered for our individual needs because of intolerance to paprika.

We passed, stopped to watch the woman in the window making special flatbreads and then filling them with various fillings and then cooking them, all very fresh. Made us feel peckish so we went in and had to try them. 3 of us had cheese and spinach, and the other cheese and mushrooms. Excellent food at very good price. Unbelievably... More

On entering this looked like a nice place.. The staff are so rude, you have to wait to be served.. The waiter didn't even look at us when we ordered.. Worst customer service ever.. Don't waste your time or money.. Good was also overpriced

After walking past the woman making pancakes in the window we wanted to check it out for a quick lunchtime pit stop. Unfortunately not so "quick" as our friend who ordered the pancake dish didn't get hers until after the dishes from the rest of the party had been cleared away. So be prepared to wait if you order the... More

We decided to try out this restaurant after seeing women making pancakes through the window. It also seemed very busy most days. However, we were not impressed with this restaurant. I chose one of the cheapest dishes (donner kebab) but was told that the three cheapest dishes were "out of stock". So I went with the fourth cheapest one. Once... More

This is decent restaurant, though on the pricy side. During the day, it appears as though they cater more to group tours. As for their service, not bad, though you may have to get their attention, if you find that your order is incomplete, i.e. items are missing. As in our case we all had the same order/dishes though some... More

There's lot of times when travelling that you just need, or want, to eat something not special. One thing that I must say about Istanbul, compared to travel in many other parts of the world, there wasn't really much bad, nasty, horrible food that is often encountered. In fact, pretty much everything was good, and more than passable -- and... More
