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... More

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

What a nice place! Good food to start with, I had lentil soup followed by lamb shashlik. Good red wine at reasonable price. And very courteous people serving and cooking. Highly recommended.

Just got back from great casual, cheap and tasty dinner with the family. This is not haute cuisine but very good and well priced in a nice neighborhood around the corner from the Four Seasons. If you don't want to spend a ton and want good food and fast service this is the place for you. Would give it five... More

This is a small restaurant down a side street by the Blue Mosque and the local market. It is fabulous! Great authentic Turkish food very reasonably priced and great service. (And free wifi!) We had a wonderful lunch including drinks for under 40 TL! Loved the adona sis kabob! We will definitely go back before we leave!
