Description: How to reach us: 1) Via Tram:(Takes 15 min from Kabatas station, 3 min from Sultanahmet)Get off the tram at Gulhane station (see the map below), at the traffic lights ahead take Ebusuut St. to the left and up the hill. After 2 minutes (50 meters) you will reach Sultania Hotel. Our restaurant is at the ground level opposite of the hotel building.2.) I am near, I may walk:If you are staying around here it is probably 10 to 15 min walk along the tram line towards Sirkeci direction. When you reach Gulhane station (see the map below) look for the traffic lights ahead. Take Ebusuut St. to the left and up the hill. After 2 minutes (50 meters) you will reach Sultania Hotel. Our restaurant is at the ground level opposite of the hotel building. 3.) I’ll prefer taxi:The driving directions are complicated around here. If you’ll get a taxi, it is better to tell the driver that you want to get off at Cagaloglu, just after passing Sirkeci train station (you can show him the map). Take the street on the left (Ebusuut St. opposite direction). It takes only a 5 minute walk by there.

“Our favourite place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

LOVED it!!! We found it on our second day in Istanbul and loved the food and service. I had lost my sunglasses and we traced our steps back to the restaurant. Surprisingly, it was there, so we had dinner there on the same day!!! The service is awesome and the food is addictive. We loved everything we ordered!!! I'm still craving their traditional Turkish dishes. We will definitely be returning the next time we are in Istanbul!!! Thanks being apart of one of the many reasons we love Istanbul!! :D

“Nice food and price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

We found this place the fourth night in istanbul and everything was nice. The place is not too big, but calm and the accomodation is simply and comfortable. when we ordered the food, they come to us with large dishes with very delightful taste, also the red wine glass was fine. At the moment of payment the bill let us very happy. We reccomended at all!

“Way overhyped”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The poofy bread was good, but the cold mezze platter and mushroom casserole were meh. On the plus side, they did give us free baklava and tea to end our meal.

(Don't understand how this is so highly rated on TripAdvisor.)

“Not bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

I wonder why they have to work so hard for customers, the food is good, the prices are good, but the waiters are so busy canvassing for new customers that you dont really get the service you could get, but they are a nice bunch.

“Busy Busy Busy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

It has a great vibe, they will accommodate you and we had the most amazing waiter - my husband is really cheeky - but this chap had the measure of him! We had lovely food and went back the following night.
