My partner and I visited this restaurant in June and September 2014. Both times we experienced excellent service. Ask for a seat by the window as the views are amazing, although you can see the views from most tables outside. I had the prawn starter with Aegean herbs, it was to die for! The meze's are the best we have... More

We were recommended by our hotel to go here but were disappointed. Both food and interior felt like it had seen better days. Service and the view was nice but for me the food is a great part of the meal and it simply didn't live up to it.

We lucked out at getting a window seat and loved the view of the Bosphorus with the tasty food. Everything was well presented and the staff was very courteous. We would come back.

This is an upscale restaurant. When you want a special lunch or dinner...something other than the typical Istanbul kebab place this is the place to go. The food and service is exceptional. They also have one of the best rooftop views in the city. It's a bit hard to find the first time you go, but ask around.

The service, the presentation, the view, and more importantly the taste. The very best restaurant in Istanbul, and the food is SOOOOOOOOOO good. I can recommend Kaptan Pasha's stew. to die for. x

We went there on our last night in Istanbul and for my husband's birthday celebration. It was everything that you would want for that occasion. Arrived early and was seated in the window facing the Bosphorus Bridge and Instanbul skyline. Food was really good - and celebratory cake was excellent (thank you staff). Would definitely recommend this place to anyone.... More

A small restaurant on top of a hotel in the old part of the city. Good view on a clear day. Small but with good space for the costumers, - but remember to book a table. We had lovely food, very nicely arranged and with a good taste. The waiters took good care of us and we had a good... More

We booked a table (recommended as there are only 2 sittings per night) before leaving Australia after watching "Shane Delia's Spice Journey Turkey", hoping for home-style authentic Turkish food & we were not disappointed. The restaurant is located in Sultamahnet, within the Orient Hotel on the top floor (right on the Tram line). The sunset view was lovely, menu options... More

We decided to have dinner at Imbat after reading all the good reviews on Trip Advisor. We arrived to a brightly lit dining room and were handed a menu with photos of the food. The staff tried hard to please; the food was beautifully presented but was not particularly good. The wines were sub par. There was a view but... More

I was very much looking forward to our dinner at Imbat. We were promptly greeted in the lobby of the Orient Express Hotel and whisked up to the restaurant overlooking the Bosphorus. The view was stunning. The food was well prepared and delicious, but the service was off the mark the entire evening. They really weren't that busy, but it... More
