This place is on one of the streets next to Taksim square. The restaurant is nicely decorated inside and looks nice from the outside. We ordered a sampler and a few more dishes that the waiter recommended. Everything was delicious! The food was delivered fairly quickly. The waiter (he might have been a manager) was very knowledgeable about the menu... More

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

We had a great quick meal , mix grill with the pepperoni pie and has really good time . Four stars because staff doesn't speak English , but strongly recommend .
