Chicken dessert

I had the yummiest lunch that felt home made. I wanted dessert and the maître de was so nice and showed me all the desserts of which he recommended the chicken breast one, yes that's right chicken breast. It was delicious, a must try :)

Our guide introduced us to this fantastic place. We walked in from a cold and wet day and were greated with outrageous smells of the huge choice of dishes being prepared. A rainbow of colours and a busy happy friendly atmosphere. We dined upstairs which was quieter. Our food and drinks were delivered swiftly by curteous friendly staff and we... More

Only half the items on the menu were available, food was bland and staff were very rude. There are hundreds of much nicer places to eat in Istanbul

Stopped at the "Pudding Shop" at the recommendation of our tour guide whilst visiting the attractions in the Sultanhmet district. Food was good and reasonably priced. Service was good as well. You could do well to visit whilst in this area.

Okay, I know this is a review of the restaurant, and those usually are based highly on the food and/or the environment. The food here was not the best I had in Istanbul, but it was very good. The Pudding Shop is rather an experience, a destination, to see and experience as it has traditionally been a meeting place for... More

I've never had such wonderful meals. This place lives up to its reputation. I highly recommend the egg plant foods because they just melt in your mouth.

Not expensive and really near the Blue Mosque etc - you see all the food when you enter and choose what you want. They then bring it to you. Excellent quality for the price.

We came here for a coffee because my mum remembered it from visiting Istanbul as a student in the 1970s. We mentioned this to the staff and they couldn't have done enough for us. Really, genuinely lovely service.

The Pudding Shop is a no-frills place to eat a moderately priced meal in a chaotic environment of long tables with brusque wait staff who are just moving as many people through as possible. The food was okay for hungry tourists but not memorable. We had the spinach baked with cheese dish and the chicken kabab plate. Don't avoid this... More

We were on an organised day trip of Instanbul and this restaurant was one of several pointed out by our Guide. A good choice and speedy service. I echo the comments made by Mike C. We were able to pay in Turkish Lira or Euros - or to use a credit card - which was very useful. Toilet facilities spotless... More
