Decent food

Decent food, decent service. I think overall, everything was good, but the hummus was disappointing. Note that there is a 10% service charge. The place is slightly more upscale than all the other places I've went to in Istanbul, but still no dress code.

This restaurant was lovely and the food was fresh. The hummus and breads served at the beginning are delicious and the waiters are very attentive. I would love to go back

It was our first meal in Istanbul and we were all impressed. We found Faros on the street leading us from our hotel to Taksim square. The place is clean, well heated and illuminated.

We tried the mixed entree plate and the mixed grill platter. Both were excellent and gave a perfect and plenty filling sampler of what the place has to offer. The wait staff was helpful too. Highly recommended

Had two meals there, dinner and lunch - I liked the overall design, food quality and polite and helpful staff. Everything we ordered was really very good and tasty. Place is clean and well-maintained, credit cards are accepted.
