Greatly recommended by the Millenium Suites manager; so took the tram over and after a short walk, was greeted at the door by very attentive waiters. Ordered the kebab + pistachios, it was amazing. Juicy, crunchy, tasty, came with pine nuts and a very good salad as well. Fresh, hot bread. Perfect for lunch to refuel and go the rest... More

When you are looking for a romantic candle light dinner then this place is not for you. Ambience reminds that of a nice diner. But the food speaks for itself! We could't try the famous salt-crust chicken because it would have been too much food for two people but the kebaps with pistachio nuts were heavenly. Even the desserts, which... More

We were introduced to this restaurant a year ago by family and so on this return visit to Istanbul (group trip from Meine Städte) we found our way back here! Lunch was busy with a mix of business groups and wealthier families. We enjoyed mixed meze to start with and then tried the traditional oven baked chicken - this dish... More

Very good restaurant at reasonable prices; turkish regional kitchen. You need to book in advance in order to taste the specialties, but ordinary dishes are as good. Waiters speak English.

It is true, safe place to eat: normal prices, good quality plates and a french-like serving quality. The Sultan is a really good surprise. Compared to other places during our stay, this one is our preferred!

It is all about the Arab cuisine of the Turkish region of Hatay ... Do not miss it. Located next to the Historia Mall in the historical neighborhood of Fatih, this is a very rich restaurant in terms of the menu contents. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. They do amazing food representations like the flammable salt-covered chicken or... More

This not a five star restaurant in terms of atmosphere or elegance but rather in terms of authentic and good food. We ordered the salt encrusted roast lamb when our reservation was made that morning - they need the advanced time to prepare the dish. To start we chose a couple of mezze from the large tray displayed at our... More

Good variety of starters. Kisir and humus was good. Their 4.5 foot special kebab (seasoned with garlic, sumac, pine nuts, and pistachios) was incredibly juicy and tasty. Reminds me of the kind of food you get in Syria, which explains the groups of Arab tourists that frequent the place.

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
