The menu (in English/Turkish) is easy to comprehend and has a number of options and naturally has something for vegetarians. There are a number of set menus to choose from all are... More

Palestinian owned and family operated, cozy restaurant. Their service is excellent and their food is delicious. We found them on our first trip to Istanbul and ate there several times. On our second trip to Istanbul a year later, when we were staying in a completely different part of town, we made a point of bussing over just so we... More

Being vegetarians this place was excellent, the falafels were fresh, very tasty and filling. This place is small but clean and the service was good. It was that good we ended up eating here about 4 times. I would certainly recommend a visit to this place if you're in the area.

This place is very small. Looked like a mom and pop restaurant. Helpful staff. Have sitting inside and outside. They have about 4 - 5 items for vegetarians. Like the falafel even though it was a bit dry. Would like to go there again.

Best vegetarian retreat after a tiring day near Taksim. The wraps can be improved by adding more sauces and salads but rest of the stuff is nice and tasted fresh. We ended up twice at this place and might go again.

Freshly prepared and fried, with humus, salad and little more. With 20 liras you can buy a menu. Few tables outside and inside. A great veggie choice, near Taksim square.

Excellent food, huge servings, very cheap. Simply great. The hummus was divine, the falafels soft and tasty, and the tabouli was the best I have had.
