This restaurant is not to be missed !

This place was referred by a friend. We tried the urwa kebab and chicken shish and it was very delicious. The owner Apo was so friendly made us feel so comfortable and gave us complimentary turkish tea and a beautiful nazar bonju. I will always come back here to eat whenever I'm in Istanbul next... read more

We enjoy a really friendly atmosphere in this restaurant, we had a quite pleasant talk with the landlord. Here, you can taste the most traditional turkey food, for example, I've tried a dish with was cooked in the clay pot, it was a interesting experience. So I recommend you to come to have a traditional meal and talk. Hope everyone... More
