In terms of price, this place is a tourist trap. Our bill was $ 200 and we were 2 adults and 2 kids (11 & 10). All we ordered was mixed grill and turkish cheese pizza. Same quality food is available elsewhere at 1/3rd the price. These guys try and trick you by showing pictures from the menu without the... More

Lovely food in the hearth of the old city! This was by far the best restaurant we tried in Istanbul. Lovely atmosphere and food. You can sit on cushions and order a proper turkish stew. There is a woman a the main hall preparing fresh pitta bread. Staff was very friendly and helpful in suggesting what is best to order.A... More

Overpriced but attracted as it served alcohol with meals in an area where few restaurants seemed to. Busy, so seemed a good option. Cushions on floor seemed almsot gimmicky without any comfort, service was terrible. Meals were diabolical, food sent back once as stone cold and refused to pay for it when it came out a second time as still... More

Horrible Service. Very rude. Overprived food. Taste was OK, but 18 lira for pancake with cheese. That would be expensive back home (switzerland) and we were paying this in turkey. Dont be fooled by the nice interior. Horrible Place. Would Never Go Again.

After reading some other reviews I would agree about this place being a tourist trap. We thought the food was excellent and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere. However, the service was slow and the meals were overly expensive.

As most of the reviewers mentioned this place is a tourist trap , the service is bad the food also, so expensive and don't forget to check the price in the menu and your pill.

My fiancé and I stayed in the Sultanahmet and stopped at the Han for lunch. I loved the decorations and the atmosphere this creates. There are tables and chairs, but we sat on the pillows on the floor at lowered tables and relaxed. The food was tasty, if on the expensive side and service was good.

The decoration meant to give authentic look and the two ladies who makes traditional pastries near the door enhanced this impression, but this was it- seconds after we were seated, the waiter tried to push us (4 people) the most expensive courses in the menu (not to mention that no prices appeared near the nice pictures and we had to...

Their pancakes are nice, place looks cool & comfy but its nothing out of this world. Service is slow and not very friendly but overall it was decent enough.

My husband and I were taken in by the fact that it was a very crowded restaurant and it looked very inviting with its low tables on carpets and the lady in front rolling out fresh wraps. However we realized it was very overpriced for the food- but having said that, the area it's located in is generally overpriced. For... More
