We had Bulgogi and spicy fried chicken. Bulgogi was decent but the portion is very little for 35YTL. The spicy chicken was over fried and again, small portion. The vegetable that says in the menu was minced carrot for 25YTL. We had 3 fried dumplings for 10YTL. It's over priced for what they offer. We left the restaurant still hungry... More

I recently had the opportunity to enjoy this restaurant twice in one week during my stay in Istanbul. The first night we happened upon it by accident because it was close to our hotel - just down the hill from the Arasta Bazaar. The second time was very deliberate and just as good. You can choose from a Korean or... More
