Forgettable and too expensive for what it is

Like many others here I kept being amazed at how this establishment was even mentioned with "Michelin star" in the same sentence. Incredibly empty, hallow even, when we arrived. Reception was notable by its absence, we stood around for 5 mins before we were shown our table by our well-intentioned... read more

This restaurant would maybe get a Bib Gourmet if it were 70% cheaper but it is nowhere near a Michelin star, As soon as you go in, there is this smell of dust and mould, like an old theatre and in fact it goes nicely with the curtains but do you want such decor for an eatery where you want...

Am really blown away that this restaurant has a Michelin star. While we got to meet and chat with the chef, who was very friendly, the rest of the staff was non-communicative. We ordered a dish that came out prepared nothing like the menu read, and when we asked the waiter said the menu had changed, but he didn't mention... More

We ate here twice last week at the end of a three week excursion through western Turkey and were extremely pleased with our experience. Our terrace table had a beautiful view of the Bosphorus, the service was excellent, the wine list was interesting and extensive, and the food--sea bass and sea bream both times--was wonderfully prepared and the best of...

I have been to many 1-3 star Michelin restaurants all over the world, Noma being the last. I could say that I was impressed by the food in this 1-star restaurant - I had the asparagus salad, sea bass with curry and the white chocolate mousse. Of course, the alcohol cost much more than I'd like due to very obvious... More

Murat Bozok...İ start my review by giving the name of the Chief Nd owner of the place. Because " he" makes the whole difference. He is more then a Chief, in fact an artist. He creates miracles in the kitchen that you will have the priviledge of tasting. Do get recommendations on the menu and if you are lucky you... More
