It was drizzling that day while walking to grand bazaar. So we decided to go into a restaurant for our lunch. I'm glad we went into this Antakya Restaurant as they served nice food. The best is the kebap in clay pot. We had mixed chicken and lamb, both are nice and I like the lamb better. One of the... More

I did not expect too much, since there are too much similar restaurants in area. Just ask the owner to reccomend you the meal. Plenty for the eyes, taste excellent. My compliments and reccomendation to check.

During a recent trip to Turkey that had me spending three different occasions in Istanbul I discovered this restaurant. I enjoyed the food (I tried a wide variety as I ate her on three occasions); the friendliness of the staff; and the atmosphere.

The staff are very pushy, as soon as we sat pushed us to order, his kindness felt fake, advice given by him was more of " just order dammiw", food itself was good, price was high, a bill of 240 lira is expensive. in summary good food, better service and better prices at others thought

I felt, I am in my home town, Antakya. Really delicious and cooked with traditional recipes. Chef Ahmet's home town is also Antakya. When I look details in the food; ingredients are very important. Especially spices, pomegranate molasses, tomato paste, hot chili paste, künefe ( kanafeh) cheese, künefe (wiry kadayıf) were delicious and brought from Antakya. Mezze's are perfect; hummus,... More

I have been a couple of times here this month, as I know it is good in an area full of tourist traps. Actually it looks a bit touristy with the multi-cuisine menus, but the Eastern Turkish food was very good, and the staff nice and location good.
