Surly waiters, stale chocolate, below average baklava...I don't get all the amazing Trip Advisor reviews. Maybe the Turkish Delight that we didn't try? But we were disappointed.

This place is one of the best place for tasting traditional Turkish sweets. The price is a bit higher but if you are in Istanbul, this place must be visited at least one time. Especially traditional Turkish puddings are my favourites.

Very good tea, desert and turkish delight. Had the greatest pudding of my life. Not cheap but worth it. Tip: try the cofee house upstairs.

The restaurant is located near to Sirkeci tram station in the corner of a busy street. The puddings caught our sights from a distance. The portions were rather huge, not so easy to eat alone, the better way is to share them with each others. The place has an unforgettable atmosphere, the menu card is like a colorful magazine worth... More

This is a delight indeed to visit. We sat upstairs and watched the world of Istanbul go by. Cansu was our waitress and she was fabulous, not only was her English excellent but she was able to recommend the delights of the cafe as well as explain what different deserts were. Her customer service has to be commended it's people... More

One of the best places to go in Istanbul. Eminönu district next to the golden horn. All types of desert at 10/10 taste.

I believe they have more than one spot. We enjoyed the location that has a floor above the shop where you can look down and watch the scene. Went there everyday while in Isranbul. You can choose a mix of Turkish delight which offers a wonderful variety. We also bought a box to take home. The staff were all very... More

My family and I tried this place based on the reviews of my fellow travelers. We were so glad we did. The three types of pudding and the slice of cake we had were delicious !!!! It was so good that we went back the last day of our stay in Istanbul. The service is excellent and sitting upstairs with... More
