Unfortunately we had a very bad experience at this restaurant. It is all smiles and friendliness but in fact all they are trying to do is rip you off. Our selection of main course clearly showed at 46tl per person pretty expensive for a few bits of meat but when the bill came it this dish amounted to 130tl! When... More

The Han is a very typical Turkish Restaurant in the heart of Old Town Istanbul not far from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Yes it is a tourist location. The atmosphere is relaxing and the food is good. A team of bakers on site will prepare some fresh bread with various stuffings (spinach, mushrooms, etc), and there are some... More

Food was just OK. The waiters and staff in the restaurant were very pushy. The restaurant had more show from the waiters and the women making pidas than decent food. Easy to find location in Sultanahmet.

We ate a mezze, a pancake and then decided to get the veggie 'testi', the fired clay pot dish It's a bit of a gimmick to be honest... It didn't have much flavour at all and at 100 lira (for mostly potatoes) they are having a laugh, well, someone is laughing somewhere, we were not. Our waiter was very nice... More

Looked very appealing but smelt of toilets and disinfectant. Very overpriced. Go to the cafe next door, up the road, with a sweet shop attached..this may not look as nice but the food and service is superb!

Spent 10 days in Istanbul and were disappointed by our first 2 nights eating out; then discovered The Han Restaurant where we had most of our meals for the rest of our stay. Traditional Turkish cuisine combined with most advanced hospitality technology. Staff treated us like pashas and catered for our individual needs because of intolerance to paprika.
