“Recommended, great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We had read some good reviews about this place on tripadvisor, but were actually planning to go to another place. Then the owner lured us in and offered us a free fruit plate and free tea/coffee, so his deal was hard to refuse. We did not regret eating here at all though.

My partner ordered the chicken casserole. That was simply the best chicken I ever tasted. It was absolutely delicious. The owner actually recommended the lamb casserole, so I imagine that one could be as good. Definitely try one of these casseroles though!

I had the Manti which was fine. It was a lot, and it could have been a little warmer, but it was nice to try this Turkish specialty. Of course I regretted not going for the casserole, kinda.

The staff was pretty friendly. The fruit place was very nice. We very much appreciated their free tea/coffee offer, but declined since we were very satisfied. The price is reasonable and comparable to other restaurants in this street.

“Better than average in Sultanahmet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Very charming host lured us in off the street (as is the way in Istanbul) and did not disappoint. Our meal - the Chef Special kebab ceremonially smashed out of a clay pot - was delicious, the coffee better than average and the gratis fruit plate an unexpected bonus. Service was friendly although not overly attentive. Overall, recommended.
