Was recommended by the staff at the Neorion Hotel, think they are part of the same group. Located on the too floor of the orient hotel. Good terrace restaurant, quirky take on normal Turkish food. Slightly pricier but excellent food. Two services each evening, we picked the 21.15 start. Never rushed, children's alternatives available. Too quality food and certainly worth... More

Great food at a great roof terrace. Definitely worth experiencing. In the evening, a reservation is a must!

We have been here before a couple of years ago. We were not dissappointed. The food is still well prepared, flavoursome and very interesting. The service is still impeccable.

There was a variety of home made bread with home made tapenade and olive oil, a lovely soup and delicious vegetarian dinner. I never tasted walnut rice as delicious - rich in walnuts and spices. The chef sent a complimentary lemon ice dessert and it capped a perfect dining experience.

We capped our recent stay in Istanbul by spending our final dinner at Imbat and could not have made a... More
