“Delicious "clay pot" meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

We happened upon this restaurant late one afternoon after touring the area. Its location is great in the sultanahmet area close to the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, and the tram. The staff was very friendly and particularly engaging with our children. We ordered the mixed appetizer plate which was typical, but delicious. The kids wanted onion rings which they liked. The kids got the kebab plate with fries. They liked their meal and finished it. My husband and I got the clay pot meal--I got chicken and my husband got the lamb. The whole spectacle of the clay pot and the fire was quite appealing. But more importantly, the meal was absolutely delicious. Both our meals were tender, cooked and seasoned to perfection. My husband also got fresh pomegranate juice which was very good as well. We were so full we did not get dessert. Overall this was an excellent meal, great service, and nice atmosphere. The only thing I didnt like was that around us so many people at other tables were smoking.

“Watch out for overpriced beverage”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2009

This restaurant, probably because is located in the most touristic area in Istanbul (Blue Mosque, Sofia, etc...) has fairly cheap dishes but they overprice all the beverages (coffee, tea, 3 euros, while normally you would pay 1,5 euro or 2 maximum). They also acept payment in euros but surely they use a very bad currency for the customers.
