Great Food, Great Service

This spot was so pleasant I went back 3 times during my 4-day holiday in Istanbul. Friendly waiters and a good menu and vibe.

Top class cuisine with best service. Had dinner here alone but don't feel lonely in such beautiful atmosphere. Live music is quite enjoyable. Clean and very layout. Friendly stuff will chat with you but just right amount that you won't feel be disturbed. Owner is very experience with Istanbul so if you need guide info then definitely come to this... More

The guy outside restaurant (who must persuade you to enter the restaurant) didn't press us or pulled our sleeve and that was decisive moment. Inside (it was cold to sit outside) - cheerful athmosphere. Food and wine were good. Spread appetizer is on the house. As they thought that I was a bit cold, they brought burning coal!

First night we were tempted in by the salesman on the door, who charmed us, and negotiated free extras. The food was superb and all the staff were charming. The next night we went straight there and had an even better meal, and the live music was good too. I had a hookah pipe which was fun, and shared it... More

After passing up many places to eat my hubby picked this one. Service was very friendly and the food was very good. I had the Sultan' Favorite with chicken, walnuts, mushrooms and spinach with a creamy sauce. I could eat it every night we are here if I didn't want to try new places and things. I would say that...

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
