delicious & reasonable

As it happens, I met a kind tour guide. He recommended us this place as one of delicious restaurants in Istanbul. His opinion is correct. We really enjoyed traditional Tulkish cuisine very much. Unlike the name haveing 'meat', their cuisine was full of veggies.

We found this place while we were walking around Sultanahmet. After our first lunch, it became our lunch place. Every time we tried different kebabs and we loved it all. Although this restaurant is located in the heart of old city, it is not a tourist trap. The prices were decent and the service was always good.

My wife and I went here on our first night in Istanbul. We ordered a dish of meat and rice and also a meat pita. The bread is outstanding and the meat is good. I wish the food were a bit spicier. I highly recommend ordering the bread with some good sauces.

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...

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...
