My husband and I were fooled by the pretty decor and went in this restaurant for dinner. We thought the food was overpriced and the service was terrible.

Do not be fooled by the very nice interior, lady making pancakes (gozeleme) at the front and fairly full restaurant if you walk past - the food is overpriced, the waiters are rude and it is a complete waste of your money. The waiters think they're being helpful and funny but really they're just trying to make a cheap buck... More

Environment is good and also the food and option in the menu. The price is expensive when you compare with the options you find close to The Han. When we arrive there was a lady doing pancakes in front of the restaurant and we decided to enter in order to try it, but we were advised that it was not... More

My wife orders the tasti Kabab and that was good . I was intrigued by rye lady rolling fresh dough very fresh so we enjoyed it. It's better than some of the other roadside restaurants .

I am writing this review not based on the cockroach that was walking on my wife's leg!!! The food - for me - is considered average. The waiters are not nice but not rude. If you like lamb try the kebab jar. The lamb taste is obvious which is OK for me as I like lamb. My wife got chicken... More

Three vegetarians ate well in this ottoman themed restaurant, on the main road upto Sultanahmet sites. We sat on the cushions and the service was of good quality, ensuring food came together. Recommend the turkish stuffed pancakes and the vegetarian mains were sufficient to share. This was certainly our most expensive meal, but worth it for the food and ambience.

We ordered the traditional Turkish stew as well as wine and beer. The food was nice but nothing special so we nearly fell off our chairs when we got the bill. Horribly over priced for what we had but we should have realized as there were no locals eating only tourists. Had a much better meal earlier in the day... More

The food is not bad but they have "Service Charges" not declared in the prices. So you will pay more then you expect. The Han is also overpriced compared to restaurants that are a few meters away from the main tourist spots.
