“Adana Style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

A local southern couisine with plenty to offer. Location is great where you can park yourself rather than using valet service (I personally hate the valet system widely used in Turkey). Staff is friendly but you still have to review the check before paying. It's considered embarrassment among the locals to review the check. The food is delicious.

“Ordinary food, small meat portion ,totally overpriced, hidden charges”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

The setting is nice, part of the Sortie complex with 8 restaurant next to the Bosphorous. You seat outside with a view and the ambiance can be nice.

You order meze without knowing too much the price. The staff is a bit pushy. My wife ordered lamb kebab and me beef rib. The kebab was Ok but bearly enogh for my wife. My ribs were 7 pieces of bones, with about no meat. 2 slices of tomatoes!!! That's it. The price for the rib 38 liras.

I told the owner there was no meat , he said that's the way its prepared in Turkey.

So for the bill 211 liras: 3 meze, 1 glass of wine , the meat. there is cover a surprise cover charges of 16 lira, and a 10% service charge also surprise.

So it is a rip off. Go for a drink but don t eat there.I really hate to buy when there is nothing in my plate pus hidden charges.

“The BEST kebabs I have ever eaten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

Trust me.... it is noisy, crowded and there's no parking but the food and atmosphere is just amazing. In the good weather have lunch out on the terrace and eat the best kebabs in town with one of the best views in Istanbul.
