Lives up to the hype. Not cheap but top notch sweets. Was surprised that I enjoyed the walnut over the pistachio. Will return tomorrow to try more of the tens of sweets on offer.

Delicious! Get the spinach one! And the lemon drink - I'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure it was straight up lemon juice with sugar. The baklava melts in your mouth.

Even if you are slightly interested in desserts, you have to visit Karakoy Gulluoglu. There are thousands of places that sell "baklava" (what you are going to eat at Gulluoglu), but this place is by far the best.

Our Istanbul guide sent us here for dessert, after having sent us for a most excellent dinner at Karakoy Lokantasi just up the street. It's a family affair, with no branches, and the Best Baklava Ever. We suspected we were in for a treat when a man pulled up in a taxi and a waiter came out with his order.... More

This is one of the best places for baklavas and similar desserts in Istanbul. They have a selection of breakfast items as well. A major downside is that it is difficult to find a place to sit for a breakfast. And as they are not meant for long sitting, not that comfortable.

Had a mixed plate with the honey cream, on the recommendation of the cashier; taste this Baklava and all others will taste inferior!
