I travelled from UK to Istanbul. I had been recommended to Visit from someone who is Turkish (always a good sign) and wow it did not disappoint. The best meal we had whilst in Istanbul. We were given a outside table, even though we did...not make a reservation. There was 3 of us who visited the restaurant. We all had different starters/main meals. We all tasted each other’s food and each dish was outstanding. It is Armenian food with a Turkish Twist. Such a great atmosphere, outstanding food/service and great price wise. If you go to Istanbul you must come to this restaurant.More

I was born and raised in Istanbul, and I can confidently say that Jash is one of the best places to gather with old friends for a fun night. I would describe this place as a quasi-traditional Istanbul tavern. The place is perfect for families...and women as well, since the higher-than-average prices really keep the more problematic groups at bay. I live in NYC and I always arrange gatherings at this place with old friends. Even though I get to visit once every 5 or 6 months, the proprietress Mari always remembers me and shows love and attention to my table. I love the accordeon guy, who literally played Hava Nagila for me in my last visit; it is quite an experience to have in Turkey! Highly recommended for a taste of secular Turkey that we increasingly miss with each passing year.More

This place is such a special with its good quality of food, very attentive service and typic atmosphere. I fully enjoyed my evening here thanks to musician Hayko who was playing Armenian music. The warm welcoming and personal care of the owner Mari makes this...place EXTRAORDINARY! Thank You very much for making my evening unforgettable experience. I definitely recommend and give 5 STARS. :-) SEE YOU SOONMore

We had a nice dinner in this restaurant. The dishes are Arminian with a Turkish twist. The atmosphere is also good and the staff very nice. The place is small so booking is needed.

This is an unusual Armenian restaurant with a Turkish twist - a mix of cultures and flavours - wonderful dishes that blend tastes and senses. The music is entertaining - we were lucky because many of the customers joined in making the evening even more...fun - a very friendly, cosy environment. There is a varied menu with some very interesting dishes to try - perfect for sharing and sampling. The staff are very friendly and helpful - making suggestions and recommendations - depending what ingredients are fresh in the kitchen. Actually everything that we tasted was good - a very enjoyable evening delivered with warmth and friendliness.More
