The food is good specially the desert (Kunafa with cream). The kebab was delicious and the staff are friendly. I will go back to try other food there.

Decent variety of Turkish starters all of good quality. The Turkish bread is very good and is baked when ordered. The main dishes (kebabs) are also very good and well served. The prices are acceptable and the service is casual as is the restaurant.

Spent our last in Istanbul eating here and they did not dissapoint. Lovely place with good food. Fresh food prepared on the grill. Their bread was freshly made and was really good. The service here is excellent. The people who worked here made us so welcomed they even showed us their mincing technique. For just a meal. We had a... More

We found this by chance on our first night in Istanbul, and decided to go in because it was the only restaurant where they didn't have someone outside trying to get us to come in, which I find really annoying. The food is quite good for the price (salads are outstanding), staff is friendly and the music was pleasant. We... More

We landed in Istanbul late on a Saturday night and chose this restaurant as it was close to our hotel just off Takism square. The restaurant was busy but not too full to accommodate a table for 2. It was our first experience of Turkish food and it was definitely the best! We had a selection of great dips and... More

We picked this restaurant from the Trip Advisor list for restaurants local to our hotel off Taksim Square. It was the second one in the TA list that we tried and were very pleased with it. Very good food and helpful waiters. One delight is that you pass the open bread oven on your way to the table, so you... More

The waiters are little bit pushy,but they explained the variety of kebabs they had on menu,and served our main meal in a short time.We ordered some lamb kebab with yogurt and some chili chicken kebab (price for both not...

First meal in istanbul and was shocked by the bill. Though the food was average in taste but quality of meat was good. Service was pleasant. But overall slightly overrated.
