It's good experience to be in such restaurant as very convenient. You can chose your meal from the display ( meat , salad, bread and drinks) the staff will cook for you and they will also arrange your table. It's wonderful.

stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
