As frequent visitors to Istanbul, we find ourselves going back to this little restaurant again and again. Pleasant service, good food, cold beer, in a quiet side street almost in the shadow of the Four Seasons Hotel--and NOT with their prices. Look for the large serving of hot fluffy bread (sort of like a soapilla).

From the outside it looked very small and cheap but inside the food was out of this world. Loved the walls covered from floor to ceiling with photos of guests enjoying there meals. Liked the menus with images of what was on offer. When our food arrived, it looked better on the plate than in the photos. Wonderful taste and... More

We were actually there in November 2013, not 2014. Finally getting around to my reviews for that trip! Convenient location in Sultanahmet (old city) Instanbul. It was right across the street from our hotel and next door to a hostel. Near other hotels and Aya Sofya and the Sultanahmet mosque. Small, casual restaurant. Wait staff did their job, but not...

The place is nice and the food is delicious! The restaurant is just beside the hostel that I stayed. I highly recommend this place! And is not expensive

Found it by chance while walking away from the noisy Sultan Ahmet. The menu has photos so it's easy to see what you'll have. Our son has a stomach problem there, but I think it's rather 4 hours flight plus a very hot weather (30+ Celsius degrees) and maybe too much species as we (parents) has no problem. Stuff was...

One of the best meals we had during our entire trip. Well-seasoned food in a clean restaurant and WC.

We had lamb shish kebab and pizza . The food was good . Just lacks the ambiance as compared to some other restaurants around the area.

I ate at this restaurant upon my arrival in Istanbul. It was right next to our hotel. I arrived late and wanted someplace close and convenient. The staff was friendly and the food was good. For a quick bite in Sultanahmet it was good.

This is another example that suggests to me that tripadvisor is not trustworthy for food recommendations. I came here for lunch because everyone seemed to be raving about it. It wasn't bad, but it certainly didn't deserve the rating (#38 out of 11,000 in Istanbul!). It took a while for the staff to acknowledge I was standing there before I... More
