I would have given this restaurant a 5 but just felt the food was lukewarm rather than hot. It was tasty and definitely hits the mark for what you are expecting for Turkish food. We walked in around 12:30 and the place was not busy, an hour later the line was out the door. They make Turkish specialities every morning... More

We ate here due to a reccomendation in Rick Steves' Istanbul. Unsure of why as our food was about as average as we had in our whole 16 days in Turkey. Our server was very nice however.

We went here at night looking for something light to eat and ended up eating stale, tasteless and overpriced food. We were in turkey for a whole week and definitely this was the worst food we had. U should pick something up from outside grand bazaar if in doubt or go anywhere else but here!

Very close to Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia and we considered this restaurant targets the tourists. Overpriced and not so much variety of Turkish delicacy although the food is fresh and delicious.

They have fresh food everyday. I have tried almost everything they have. Price is a little high but one of the best places to eat. You will never get sick, food is always healthy and clean. The service is very fast. Even if it looks crowded from outside, you can still find a place to sit on the second floor.

Based in the historic area we were taken here by a guide which was apparently a famous place for spies to meet back in the day. Food was average so certainly not worth a special visit, but if passing then it's average at best.

The Pudding shop is located 5 mins away from Hagia Sofia and the Cisterns. It's a decent place to sit and relax after the long walk at the monuments. We went there for lunch on a Monday so the place wasn't crowded. The staff was helpful and courteous. Once you've picked the food of your choice from the stations, it's... More

Just had to try this one out. Great location in Sultanahmet. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We had lunch while taking in the sights and enjoyed the stufed zucchini so much, we came back for dinner on our way to our hotel! The food was good. Plenty of choices. We ate downstairs so plenty of people and "traffic" so... More
