Nice little place

Stopped in here after wandering through the mosques etc. You can sit on the low sofas or at proper tables. The service was slow but they make a show of cooking the pancakey wrap things in the room in front of everyone. Food was ok but my fries were cold.

The decor of this place is top-notched! Love the seat cushions and carpet, it gives out an authentic Ottoman feel. The food, on the otherhand, is very disappointing. I only ordered the Istanbul kebab and it was extremely salty. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Beware, this place includes a 10% service charge on their final bill. And the... More

I waited absolutely forever for a halloumi salad, kept wondering if I should just leave. At the table next to me one of the women had recieved her plate of meat, but her companion had to ask if she was ever going to get her gozleme. It apparently had been done and waiting for a while. Eventually the salad came,... More

Like others we were looking for somewhere for lunch after visiting the Topkapi, and stopped to watch the woman in the window making Gozleme. It is a nicely appointed restaurant and there were a lot of Turkish men sitting together in the back lounges. We should have stopped when we saw the 10% service fee but decided to go in... More

I passed by this restaurant yesterday and saw a woman in the window, making the world's tiniest ravioli so I thought I'd come back and give it a try. The Casearian ravioli was fine. Big helping that comes with two dishes of sauce (tomato and yogurt). Presentation was nice and the little raviolis were yummy. However, there is a reason... More

I found this restaurant in a backstreet on my way to the Blue Mosque. I saw a woman rolling a piece of dough into a very large size and I knew I had to try it. I went in and had traditional Turkish breakfast and dessert called Suclac. The restaurant was decorated colorfully and beautifully in the traditional Turkish way... More

Just avoid this place because it is realy not worth of your money..extremly overpriced and food was less than average..at the end they charge 10% on your check amount which led to some comments and discussions with service from the guests around us. During our stay there, two groups of people camed inside, saw the prices, and than stand up... More

After you visit Topkapi Palace and Archeological Museum, you'll look a place to eat and rest. Do not enter this place! Everything was terrible: a soup, a beer in copper jar, a piece of chewing gum in bread plate. The staff did not apologize and behaves unpleasantly.

Very nice restaurant to dine in, excellent services. The food is really yummy but their prices little bit expensive but it's really worth it. This nice restaurant located in Sultan Ahmed.
