Nice place to sit, inside or outside. Staff is friendly and looks good after you. I had fish and my husband had chicken. Both were good. Accompanied with salads, bread rice or some potato's. The bread as starter is very fresh baked and nice to see and eat.

As most people do, we were walking up and down the restaurant allies for dinner… looking for something that would catch our eye. Not really into these guys trying to usher us into their restaurants… so after smiling and saying no to various people at other places, this place looked the part. Fortunately, we were not disappointed. This is my... More

Last visited this restaurant in Jan 2013 so was delighted to find it is just as good. It takes a bit of finding but is worth the effort for an evening of good food and good service. There's plenty for vegetarians and our meals were well cooked and tasty. If i had a criticism it would be that drinks are... More

On a wet weekend in Istanbul stumbling across this restaurant was a lucky stroke. The staff welcome and attention was sincere, the food excellent and gazing at a blazing fire was warming. The staff recommendations were full of flavour. There is so much hassle on the streets to get you to come in to establishments it's a surprise when it... More

Spruikers out the front of a restaurant are never a promising sign but given that Istanbul is rife with them we thought we would chance it as the place was busy and had a reasonable menu, particularly promising fresh seafood. The Turbo was competently prepared but our grilled vegetables dish was woeful. The aubergine was undercooked and the potatoes were... More
