Great food for vegetarians!

This was one of the few places we chanced upon for lunch and so hadn't read any reviews etc (thank god we didn't read the reviews). I quite liked the food and specially the red lentil soup. Their meat dishes were good too as was the pizza we ordered. The restaurants top floor overlooks the market... read more

We have eaten here several times over the past 3 years. Our most recent visit will be our last. The waiter was most unhelpful and actually noncooperative. We ordered ayran (a drink) with our meal. He insisted that they didn't have it and wanted us to have coke instead. We finally gave up and accepted the cokes. Later we realized... More

Ate here during a recent business trip. The waiter on the serving line added items to my plate that I had not ordered. He implied that there was no cost, but that is not the case. I'll find another place to eat.

Ate at this restaurant on our first night in Istanbul. We were drawn in by a seemingly friendly waiter and seated. They immediately brought out bread and water without asking. Upon placing our orders we turned down the "salad", the waiter insisted that we try the salad and implied that we try it, went and ordered it himself and brought... More
