This restaurant is in a very busy district t of Istanbul and mainly preferred by the tourists so you would see many foreigners enjoying nice food there. The cuisine they serve represents the southern city of Turkey called Antakya, border to Syria. As you would guess, a lot of influence from Arabic taste and extremely tasty. They bring the ingredients... More

I recently had lunch here, on my own and in addition to praising the food as others have done, I wanted to specifically point out a really nice option for anyone eating on their own: they let you make up your own meze plate, you can choose from 4-5 items, that way you can sample without having to order whole...

We had to wait for 10 mins on arrival. Which is a good sign. Quite a bit of pressure from staff to take the meses as they come at you with a tray of them. So you have to take your time a bi. otherwise you take more than you can eat. But they tasted very good and we were... More

I have been to this restaurant many times and had written a very positive review of it few months ago. Just went there again today for lunch with a large family group. First many of the dishes we liked were not available. This could be due to Ramadan where they do not get a lot of customers for lunch. Second,... More

This place was recommended to us by a local and it is not in the tourist areas. The food is nothing short of amazing. We had Recep as our waiter and he made the experience so pleasurable able, we came back two nights later. Meze (appetizers) - try the Sarma Ici (made with pomegranate juice). The Oruk Haslama (kibii) with... More

Recommended by the front desk at the fabulous Sirkeci Mansion, this was a terrific choice. Informal, fast service, wonderful food, family friendly but just fine for couples. The metre long kebab is a spectacular presentation as are the salt baked chicken or lamb - but you do have to order the latter two in advance. We preferred downstairs to watch... More

From the freshly baked bread, to the meze choices, and the delicious kebabs, you could not want more from this clean and well-lit restaurant. It focuses on cuisine from a region close to the Syrian border. Had we more time, we would have advanced-reserve for the lamb cooked in salt. But the kebab we had (mine with oine nuts, my... More
