We went here to try the mesa platter which was alright, but it was the mesa kebabs in the yogurt tomato sauce which stood out. Prices were a bit more than the kebab stands but not too steep.

I usually run away from touristy restaurants. However, sometimes you need a break from overwhelming places and people or spicy food. If that is the case, this place is great. Prices are good, and the menu, the quality of the food, and the athmosfere of the local are close to a nice European restaurant. I wish I could find a... More

Good food, well cooked and not too crowded in an area with lots of tourist trap restaurants. The mezze plate was good.

Our waiter was wonderfully friendly and attentive. The coffee and juice were also delicious. Mostly tourists here, but worth stopping. On a busy street with a tram, so there is lots of people watching. Would... More

Having been in Turkey for over a month I wanted a simple beef burger at 8.40pm and a beer - exactly what I got in modern surroundings and western music (not too loud). Service was good and friendly. Would recommend for a burger.

Another place run by Sirkeci group. Tomato soup was really tasty. So were the hot dishes. Waiters speak fluent English and very friendly. Highly recommended for light lunch and dinner. Dessert was also very yummy.

We were there many times during lunch and dinner time and every time we got a nice appetizer to get started, so you're almost full before the main meal. At the end they offer you also a traditional Turkish tea with Halva. We ate... More
