We were first time water pipe users and the staff taught us how to do it properly so we wouldnt get a headache. He was very friendly and we felt welcomed. Very nice chilled out place to hang out in with friends.

This place caught our eye as it looks so chilled. Happy to say service and food was great too with free WiFi. Probably stayed too long but the seats are so comfortable.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
