I couldn't resist the Gozleme as a starter. It was light, not stodgy as some restaurants tend to serve it. The Kiymali Gozleme was my favourite. The meat was tender and spiced perfectly with pepper. The Meze was fresh, offering a beautiful selection of flavours. For main course we shared a Mushroom Casserole and Constantine Kebab. The mixture of flavours... More

This restaurant has Turkish woman in the window making gozleme and the interior has big cushions on the floor around low tables so looks enticing but that's about it. Food was average and overpriced for what it was. This restaurant is obviously appealing to the tourist but doesn't deliver. We were very disappointed and now know why we were the... More

One of the best meals I have had. We were tired so didn't want to walk very far. The decor caught our attention and of course everything they do to make it look authentic. The prices were steep but if your willing pay its a delicious meal with friendly staff. They were more than happy to give us information on... More

We ended up here and we walked in knowing it was a tourist trap. It was our fault but I wanted to write this review as it is borderline scam. Overpriced dishes with old bread. Note: they have ladies making bread in front of windows so you think everything is fresh. Believe them not. Plead just keep walking ( unless... More

The restaurant is styled very attractive, which may create some expectations that will not be satisfied. I have to say that the lamb casserole I ate was really delicious. Yet, I found it disappointing that it only was served with bread. No salad, no bulgur or rice. Which made the experience "snackbar-like" and boring. I have concluded that this restaurant... More

Located in one of the most turistic streets of Istanbul, the restaurant would be OK as far as food and environment are concerned. The menu is mainly typical turkish and the service is fast (too fast because we received starter and main course at the same time !!). The main drawback is the price: 3 small beers, 2 starters (just... More

The food was ok, not something you would come back too. Very expensive compared to other restaurants in the area and the others have have much better tasting food.

Nice traditional ambient, very good food, spectacular presentation but all this can be spoiled with the final bill of charge. If you don't mind spending a bit over this can be nice experience.
