Very good Traditional Turkish Food

This restaurant has always served very good food and has not changed it quality over the years. We went there with friends few weeks ago and was surprised how good the food was. Also the tables are spaced apart so you can talk and the noise levels are low. The service is excellent, and the prices... read more

Horrible atmosphere. Bad and slow service. Very expensive for the food served. I can't believe the people writing about the view in here because the only thing you see here is the cold steel construction. There are many restaurants serving much better food in much better atmosphere for much lower price. Nothing is special about this place.

you will be amazad with the food and service at this restaurant, one is at city center another one is located at kandilli which has an amazing view of the bosphorus and the building itself is worth seeing as well as it is a historical palace

A local recommended this place to me. It is in the convention center by the Hilton. Atmosphere is ok. Food is great. The grilled calamari was the best I ever had. Also the grilled lamb was out off the chart good. Reasonably priced and very high quality local cooking. I will go back.

Was eaten here 2 yesrs ago. Find this time has not much the improvement. Good veiw, food, price and service is ok, but not the best restaurant in Istanbul. Not easy to find the first time, but this time we knew it is next to Hilton hotel, at the convention center.

This place was recommended by our concierge and we were not disappointed. Location is excellent with a distant view of Bosphorus. Service was very good and the food was also very good.

With a lovely view of the city and the Bosphorus (in the distance), it's a really nice place for dinner. The mezze (appetizers) were very good, especially the rolled grape leaf dolma. I had one of my favorite dishes, Iskender Kebab, and it did not disappoint. Service was good. We really enjoyed our dinner.

Anyone visiting Istanbul and hoping to sample good Turkish food must try this Borsa restaurant. The other Borsa is on the Anatolian side of the Bosporus, not as easily reached. This one is in a building where there is a major auditorium. Everything we tried was very well made - true Turkish food with no pretense but lots of flavor.... More
