It was so good we went there twice--unheard of when you are traveling and want to experience variety. There were six of us each time, first for lunch then dinner. The owner, Kadir is the perfect host and a premier example of Turkish hospitality. We had so much fun we didn't want to go back to our hotel! It gets... More

The first time we went there we were asked to have a dinner over there, as happens everywhere. I had the moussaka and that was fantastic. Also the service was excellent and the show (lots of fire) performed by the staf when they served the plates, was the reason that we came back and enjoyed another good meal and had... More

This is one of many restaurants in a small lane near the Blue Mosque. Although the evening was cool, I was seated outside; the electric radiators compensating, but tending to be too hot. Service was prompt, and the food (moussaka), piping hot and more ‘meaty’ than is usual in Australia. My only complaint was the presence of two determined smokers... More

Cats everywhere under the table. Climbed up my leg. Food was great. Service was great. Drinks were great. But the cats ruined the dinner.

The restaurant is really nice. They have a lot of typical Turkish dishes in very reasonable price! They have a wide choice of dishes, so it's sure you find something you would like to try and eat. I've been here many times. The staff is always great, kind and helpful. There's a big choice of drinks as well. You can... More

This was the first meal we had in Istanbul and we were very happy with the food, price and the service. The staff was incredibly attentive and accommodating. The food was delicious, fresh and very fairly priced for the quantity and quality you receive. The even gave us a free mezza plate while we wait for our main course. Stop... More

Great meals, excellent coffee, well priced for what it is and very helpful staff. I really liked the cool... More

We ate at this restaurant on the back of it's high trip advisor rating, but found it to be nothing more than your average tourist fare. The 'cold meze' was a complete rip off - consisting of 3 stuffed vine leaves, a tiny dollop of humous, some stale bread, a few pieces of chopped tomato and loads of lettuce to... More

Nice restaurant in a quaint location. Friendly staff that are very helpful. Food was very good and value for money nothing spectacular but just what you need sometimes. It's hard to find top restaurants in this part of town they are very much the same, but I could recommend a visit to this one.

The food is one of the best in Istanbul and the service is great. And you can ask about a discount and/or free starters. I nearly came every day to this restaurant because it is one of the best.
