Of course the Pudding Shop is not what it was in the 60's; me either. It is a reasonable place to have something to eat and as the food is displayed, easy to order. Actually I like most any of the restaurants-with-displayed-food on Divanyolu It's good enough. In the pudding shop, the pudding is also good.

Stop in for a quick bite, hot tea and Wi-Fi. Service was friendly and the food was okay. Nothing over-the-top.

We had a busy day of walking, sightseeing etc and were passing on our way back to rest at our hotel, we called in for hot drinks and pudding! It was cold and raining outside. The hot drinks were good, the rice pudding tasty. (I like my pudding hot, it was served cold, but still good) just what we needed... More

Lunchtime rush very busy lots of tourist buses still food OK bit pricey but it is opposite the Haga Sophia in the middle of the tourist area. Waiters were good but obviously flat out. Would try elsewhere if time permitted. Down the street and to the left is a whole array of eateries

I was on a trip to a very cold cold and snowy Turkey recently and was brought by my friend Mehmet Urzan to try some local delights near the Sophia Mosque. I will not spoil the excitement of really really tasty Donurs, cheese melted dishes, stuffed egg plants and one of the better chocolate puddings I had when I was... More

Plenty of choice, also for vegetarians, very tasty freshly made food, fast and polite service, I would go there again to have a quick lunch. However if you want something romantic, forget it, just go for good and fast service, no wasted time.

Don't be fooled by the name, this place provides large portions of everything delicious in Turkish cuisine and the prices are very reasonable!

This restaurant probably used to be okay since it is often recommended in old guidebooks. Today, however, it is awful. The food was perhaps the worst I have ever had. It tasted like dog food mixed with cold potatoes in water. The staff were also unbelievably rude. I have never seen such poor service.

We stopped by before the lunch crowd. The service was fast and friendly, the food traditional, and so centrally located. Stop by to enjoy a meal; then continue to exploring the heart of Turkey.
