The food was great, the service was very friendly and the sitting area although very small was warm and cosy. We had been here before and came back because we had enjoyed the food the first time. And true to expectations we were not disappointed. The koftes are particularly good.

This is the best restaurant in the streets just off from Taksim Square, with no men standing outside flapping menus at you. Good food, good portions, lovely waiters. Unal in particular is a poppet. Desserts also yummy and worth saving room for. Wifi a bonus.

The best place among all the others that are close to the area with no disturbing employees outside of the door but a little overrated. Clean with nice dressed stuff quick service free wifi but the value for money its below average. Portions ok food ok but some more smile in the face of the waiters would be much better... More

The portions here were large. Between 2 people we ordered 2 lentil soups, hummus and an adana kebap plate. It was just the right amount of food. The lentil soup was well spiced and tasted great. I would be happy to go here again.

This seems to be a chain, we ate at the one near the Eresin Taxim Premier Hotel. The food was very good and reasonably priced, and staff were very pleasant.

We had a "starter plate" which is a mix... More
