Great food at the Istanbul restaurant, the family who run the place are very friendly. Mamas bread course is lovely with home made goats cheese and garlic butter. The mixed Mezze is also a must try dish!

Been coming for 14 years. Engin always thanks you for choosing his restaurant. He treats you as friends not customers. Jasmine is such a little star. Robbie and Joseph always friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit.

A great little place for decent food, slightly overpriced and a longer than normal wait, but worth the visit.

We went to visit the ghost village Kaya and then decided to go for a meal. We chose the Istanbul Restaurant which describes a free car park and hassle free zone. The car park sign says this car park is free to all visitors to the village but we ask if you are going to buy a drink or food... More
