I was recommended this restaurant mainly due to the proximity to the office. It turned out to be a great choice. Whilst not an expert in anyway on turkish food, I found it extremely tasty. We started with a a range of dips and vegetable dishes that they brought around on a large tray. Our waiter spoke reasonable english and was able to help us select a variety. Hot bread to accompany. I don't think we over-ordered but frankly after the starters, we could have finished then. However, we were all looking forward to trying some meats off the grill.
We took a mixed plate with chicken, beef and lamb. Again, i found the food very tasty with that real BBQ flavour.
The meal was topped off with some local beer.
Summary is that I would certainly visit there again. Good food, a nice ambience with choice of seating inside or out. I did think it was a bit pricey but as my first visit to Istanbul, i don't have a good benchmark. it was about US$55 each for the starters, mixed grilled meats and two beers.
Worth a visit.
