The food was OK, the staff were very friendly. The menu was confusing with pictures very far away from listed items as times. One of our party was very disappointed because of this.

My Mother and I ate a dinner in this place. We found it accidently but thought it looked more reliable than any other places on this street. We were not mistaken. 1. Staff is professional and NOT pushy and do not hassle you like almost all other places on this street. They do not hassle you to come in –... More

We've been eating delicious food in Istanbul all week. This wasn't one of the places. Mezze platter included this weird, inedible mayonnaise & carrot dip. There were dried bits in the hummus, as if it had been out too long. The staff are hospitable , but that is the best thing about the place. The kebab is okay. Nothing special.

We stayed at the hotel empress zoe (also *highly* recommend). It's right across the street. This was our go-to spot all week. Restaurants in Istanbul like to stop tourists in the street and try to weasel you in. (You'll see how annoying this is) This place does none of that.

We did the most amazing lunch Testi kabab! Cooked in a clay pot which is broken and served at your tangle. Beautiful show and excellent lamb, eggplants and peers! Add a Efes beer and you are set!

Since the restaurant was near our hotel and the service was excellent, we ate there a number of times. The food is very good, especially the meals in the clay pot. Most importantly the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. A real pleasure.

The food here is just about the same as most other places. Fatih, the guy who touts for business is great, remembers you after many months. But the food is not as good as next door!
