This place is where the insiders go! Our guide, Akbil, who was born and raised in Istanbul, took us there for a snack and we loved it! Delicious pastries--the best was the triangle shape with the cream in the middle. All made with flaky, light phylo dough and you can have delicious teas or the best Turkish coffee on the... More

We stumbled across this place as it was right next to hotel. As we walked in we weren't sure what the place served and we asked the salesman if they sell any food. The salesman then took it as his mission to teach us the correct way to eat baklava. He also asked the owner of the company to come... More

I must admit, baklava is a bit sweet for my American palate. I'm a foodie, and still appreciate good quality. The locals claim this as one of their favorites that they will travel the city to eat.

My friends told me this chain has the best baklava and since I have a sweet tooth, I made sure to try it out. They have multiple locations throughout Istanbul including one at the end of Istiklal near Taksim Square. I stopped by and grabbed some baklava to go. The baklava was excellent! I personally could not say it was... More

All types of their baklava are the fantastic. Especially pistachio and walnuts baklava! But prepare for long queues and incomprehensible ordering system, staff is very busy and you don't have enough time to select or ask for advise.

Too bad we live so far away from this great place. Will remember for ever (note that they apparently have no subsidiaries, but many copies).

I agree this is one of the best bakhlava shops in Istanbul(not the only good one though). If you don't suffer of diabetes or obesity GO GET SOME and try it with the local cava or caj.
