Had a great time at this restaurant. There are 4 restaurants by the same name on this street, so if you're meeting friends, just make sure you know which one. The menu is self-served, which is nice because you can see what you are going to eat, and determine how big the servings (price is by weight.) The staff's level... More

This is a restaurant where you can enjoy many varieties of the Turkish Cuisine. Especially the ones that our grandmothers used to cook. The service is fast and prices are very reasonable.

I was one of the fans of this restaurant since it was opened several years ago. They had great food and good service, located in a busy area in Kadikoy, surrounded by many local markets, cafeterias, etc. They had so much success and lots of people have come to eat southeastern-turkish cuisine here. During the years they expended and opened... More

No fast food, no fancy tables or decorations but real meals with real meat, butter, and fresh veggies. Recipes from different cities all around Turkey including old Ottoman time palace recipes. You can ask the chef "AZ" - meaning few or less or half portion in Turkish. This way you may have chance to taste a lot by paying less... More
