The atmosphere and service was great. The food was delicious and well prepared. It helps to try something new. The prices were a little steep, but not ridiculous. Well worth the walk, I'd go again.

We ended up there after walking all evening and the waiter just attracted us to the restaurant. Is not cheap but the service was really worth it! The waiter was really funny and he could speak languages that I cannot even remember. We seated down all around a table and we had some Turkish Kebab, turkish delights and Gözleme. The... More

Nice and warm place, welcoming staff and good food. The thing is you can receive the same treatment for half the price in many other places in Istanbul!

Its totaly a major aweful experience to dine in here as the taste vs.price doesn't match at all. Our first lunch in Istanbul has been sabotage by this 'tourist scam restaurant'. The 4 of us had been ripped off with total amount bill 400TL for just some insane menu - consisted of one pot meat course and some big platter... More

We have eaten there twice in last 16 months, the last time on 2 January 2015. If the recent highly negative reviews are based on recent experiences I find that troubling, because the place is comfortable and entertaining, the table service, with pyrotechnics highly entertaining and the food very tasty. It is pricy by comparison with local meatball restaurants, but... More

My family and I visited this restaurant and had a much different experience from the recent restaurant reviews. Yes, it is filled with tourists, but so are most of the other other restaurants in Sultanahmet. Also, prices are higher but you are paying for a good location in a comfortable and lively restaurant. "Expensive" is relative. The meal was still... More

Yes, this restaurant is in a very tourist area, yes it's prices are higher than normal (18TL for a small beer, 40TL for a chicken shish kabob), but then to get extremely bad service from a rude waiter who constantly rolled his eyes at us...save your money and try some of the many great restaurants Istanbul has to offer.
