My husband and I bought chicken shish kebab and baklava at this restaurant which is located near our hotel in Kadikoy. The shish kebab was really good. The baklava? Oh, my goodness! It was heavenly delicious!!! The food here is reasonably priced and authentic Turkish. The locals buy food here. That speaks for itself.

i would recommend avoiding this place. The dish is full of oil and definitely does'nt reflect traditional turkish food.When we recognized hair in the dishes,the manager offered us another dishes instead of giving our money.So don't go.

the food was full of human hair and oil. It was disgusting when we recognized human hair in the dishes. The attitude was like its common to have a hair in the food when we warned the managers about the disgusting situation. Do not go, if your favourite taste is not food with hair.

Great place for a quick lunch with local Turkish dishes like izgara kofte and other grilled meats, desserts, salads. A lot to choose from. Good taste and price. One of my favorite restaurants for lunch in Kadikoy Istanbul.
