This is the best place for sweets and a drink in Istanbul (in my opinion). Delicious! Not too pricey either. Was always busy when we visited. Place is nice and pleasant to hang out in. They're very generous with the lokum (Turkish delight) should you be making your choices for a box to take away too!

Wanted to take some baklava back home for gifts. Reception at our hotel (Orient Express) recommended Hafiz Mustafa in Sirkeci. Bright, clean, sumptuous and colourful, we were offered samples of fresh, warm baklava to help us make our choice. Everything was beautifully wrapped and vacuum packed for easy transportation. Given, eaten and enjoyed by all our friends within twenty four... More

I tried baklava in 4 places in Istanbul and would rank this as #2. The service was quick - and they gave out some free samples which was nice.

There are better desert places in Istanbul. What we had was sickly sweet from the over use of syrup. I suggest somewhere else.

Best place for desserts. Just looking at the mouth-watering window display is enough. If you find the baklava too sweet, like me, get the rice pudding and Ashure (Noah's pudding) Both excellent and best we have had in Istanbul.

I didn't like this restaurant, tried many sweets there but nothing was good, it's also crowded and the staff is very busy to serve you. although it's well situated and it has a nice view from the upper level.

I don't need to say much more in my review than this. Go for the baklava. Try all the different varieties. You will love it!

It was the last day of four we spent in Istanbul. We had a backgammon set for son, a beautiful rug for our hallway, gold earrings and a bangle for 'er indoors and we didn't have many TLs left. We came back from the Grand Bazaar on the tram to Sirkeci and found ourselves drooling at the windows of Hafiz... More
