“Good food and attention”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2014 NEW

We had dinner at this restaurant. It was nice and had some old pictures hanging from the walls that made us travel in time.
Our waiter, Burak, was very attentive.
We ordered a Tavuk Şiş (chicken breast, with tomato, rice, and chillies), a Domatesli Kebab (lamb and beef meatballs, with baked tomatoes, rice and chillies), and french fries. While we waited for the order they brought us an inflated lavash bread with some goat cheese. Food was good. If you are not used to spicy food, be careful with chillies!!!!
After dinner they brought us complimentary tea with a piece of baklava. It was also good.
Price was regular, but we had in the bill an item called "yüzde" that was 10% of the final price. We didn't know if it was the tip or an special tax. It's something that needed clarification.

“Our first meal in Istanbul!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2014 NEW

Whilst exploring the area around the Grand Bazaar, we earmarked this place for lunch. We weren't disappointed!
Burak & his team made us feel welcome & right at home. He was really helpful with menu suggestions & he even gave a piece of baklava each & Turkish tea on the house!
The food itself was amazing! We had a mixed grill for 2 & it was ample, despite me being a big eater! Well cooked & nicely presented, it was a great introduction to Turkey & Istanbul!

“Enjoyable time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2014

GREAT! Came to this place for our first lunch in Istanbul with a friend after wandering the Sultanahmet area and we did not regret it one bit. The waiter Burak recommended us plates of Turkish-style and Mix kebabs and we'd have to say these were the best kebabs we had on this particular trip to turkey. He was funny and entertaining when we engaged in a little football banter after lunch. The complimentary baklava we got after the meal made us look for more good baklavas during rest of our trip. Would definitely come to this place again if i'm ever in IST again.
