My Father was a Turkish Dignitary and we used to eat regularly there. Very good Ottoman Cooking. Delightful service and of course the amazing tiles. If you are a tourist DO NOY miss the market and after your shopping have lunch at Pandeli, you will not be sorry!

If you need a rest after all the turbulences of the spice market, this is the place. Typical turkish style. I am sure there is better (ans cheaper) turkish food in the surrounding, but its worth while to see the nice blue tiles and turkish ornaments. Food is traditionell and o.k. .

The food was very simple and not extremely tasty - the kind you could make at home very easily... The tiles are nice, the staff friendly!

It is an old famous restaurant, looking to Eminonu Spice bazaar on the right and to Eminonu port on the left. Lot's of famous actors and politicians had lunch there. Open until 6 o'clock in the afternoon.

So I have done the soul (New Mosque), I have done the smells of Istanbul (Spice Bazaar) so now I just need to walk on top of the bazaar and sit in Pandeli. The restaurant has been here for more than 100 years and the front rooms with the beautiful turquoise tiles and the windows in front of Galata Brige... More

The food was very good, especially the hunkiar beyerdi (mushed eggplant and meat). The place is nice and in a convenient neighborhood (Misir carsi). However I cannot justify the very high prices. 2 persons we paid 90TL for 2 main courses and 2 mezes (no alcohol). If Pandeli wants to continue the legend of the initial owner they have to... More
