Probably the best baklava I have ever had. I wish I had brought back much more than I did! A must for a quick treat in Istanbul.

Good quality BAKLAVA However expensive for the turkish standards. Could be cheaper. And there are more competitors of them. There are better quality than GULLUOGLU. It is a traditional baklava shop. It became more like a money factory. I like its restrooms. So elegant and old style. Baklava could be better and cheaper.

The place to visit in Istanbul if you want baklava. Service is quick and informal - find a seat inside or hang out on the street. Inexpensive and definitely worth visiting.

I cannot speak for anything else at the restaurant, but it was the best baklava that we had on our trip to Turkey. If you like baklava, give it a try.

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.
