interesting to try out

I tried a sort of pancake filled with spinach. It was very tasty but quite expensive. It's very close to all the tourist locations (Topkapi palace, Aja Sofia and Blue Mosque) and the old lady makes these sort-of-pancakes in old, traditional way and you can see her from the window of the restaurant... read more

Located near to the Blue Mosque this is a great spot to stop for lunch during a day of busy sightseeing. The pancakes are well worth visiting for. You can watch as they are made and there are lots of savoury fillings to choose from. Good value too!

We visited this restaurant several times during our 8 night stay in Istanbul. Right from our first visit we found the staff to be friendly, helpful and fun. Each time we visited we were given a warm welcome by all members of staff from the owner to the commis waiters. The food was excellent, the waiters very efficient, they gave... More

The Han restaurant attracts everyone who walk past . Traditional Decor and Ladies making flatbread are the reasons that this restaurant is always full . But İm pretty sure those who visit it once will never go back again. Everything is sooooo expensive and there is nothing special at all ! Food was ok but nothing worth the bill we... More

I read some of the other reviews and they hardly seemed to be writing about the same place that we remembered! We each had the pancakes filled with cheese and one with potato. They were made in front of our eyes and were absolutely delicious. They cost about £5, which seemed cheap enough to me. We were there a while... More

The Han restaurant attracts everyone who walk past. It is cute looks very traditional and the ladies making the gözleme at the front widow is a sell off. I know that it is in a area that many tourists walk past. But it is not bad as some of reviews say. I had some salad and the cheese and the... More

Nice restaurant, but nothing to remark positively or negatively except the price, a little expensive considering the regular food you take there. I recommend you to take the bread filled with cheese or spinach that a nice lady prepare at the moment.

Went to The Han by chance on our first day in Istanbul. The lunch was OK - but the price well above the average. You can get just as good, and much better, meals in other places at half of The Han's prices!
