Wading through the maze of restaurants just across from the huge Hagia Sophia complex, it's easy to get turned off by the many aggressive touts trying to pull in diners. This restaurant seemed different right away, the "greeter" was low-key, the menu looked good, the decor quietly appealing. It turned out the food was tasty and the service professional. Just...

This restaurant is located in the most touristic part of Istanbul. The method used to attract clients is the same used by all the other restaurant around: one guy from the staff standing in front of the restaurant invites you to have meal there showing the menu and the prices.

The five of us settled down to enjoy our visit - a bustling street just outside and plenty to watch. we made selections from the mezze plates, ordered a bottle of the 'house red' and thus began a lovely evening.

This quiet, non-pushy restaurant was just great. It pleased us so much the first time that we returned on our last night there for their fabulous Chicken with Plum Sauce. Good staff, great food, not pushy at all (at least if not too busy). One of the best.

Just had my birthday lunch at this great restaurant. Stunning food. Great service. Real Turkish dishes. Fresh, creative and beautifully presented. Good price and well worth it.
