I had been to this place for many times. Since I am a Turkish girl from Istanbul, trust me; this is one of the most tastiest baklavas in Istanbul.
Believe me, this is the best baklawa you can find in the Istanbul city centre-area, and even around Istanbul suburbs-area.
What a great surprise - found gluten-free baklava here just by accident. And for all you "normal" eaters, this is very good local baklava shop / cafeteria. Lot of varieties and ok prices for short break or take away portion. Few steps towards museum are two fine restaurants you might want to check out! Its not tourist trap, lot of... More
Although you would thing that 6 pieces of this kind of dessert could be exaggerate, I assure you that in Karakoy Gulluoglu you will not have such problem. If of course you (1)like sugar and dessert and (2) you are more or less used to such kind of dessert. If not, try 3pieces/person. You can also have a take away... More
As usual,this is the one of the best baklava shops in İstanbul.Location is great and plenty of tourists are in this shop,as well.Outside seating is also available.Easy to come here by public transportation.Recommended

My advice here would be to actually tell him what ones and how many of each you want as when we got back to our hotel and opened them up they weren't quite as... More
We were really excited to go here - and left decidedly underwhelmed. The Borek was horrid - dripping in fat and tasteless. The Baklava were ok - nothing exceptional. We preferred the other place next door which is like an up market store/cafe ... Really did not get what the fuss was about here. Sorry!
Brilliant baklava and a sort of a lot of other sweets. The combination of pistachio sugar and pastry is just perfect. The place is packed, and you just understand why after the first bite you give in the "carrot slice". Definitely a must go if you are in Istanbul.
Our new friends brought us here after telling us that Turkish baklava is superior to the Greek baklava that we have tasted in Athens and New York's Astoria neighborhood. The place was chaotic as it was a busy Saturday afternoon. Three cruise ships were in port but at least 90% of the patrons during our visit were locals. Half of... More
