Lots of house specialties, we tried the minced chicken with pistachio and the meat kofte. Perfect lunch after wandering around the Grand Bazaar for a couple of hours. Very friendly and attentive staff, and fair prices. Will return if I'm ever in Istanbul again.

We found this place via another application (it was rated #1 there) and decided to try a seafood. It was very tasty along with lamb kebab. The service was very good and not intrusive unlike most Turkish restaurants. The sweets are better to be eaten Great place for a dinner!

The staff was incredibly nice and friendly. They gave me bread on the house. Sadly, I couldn't eat it. I got the Cinnamon Chicken. That was a first for me, and it was fantastic.

We found this place on Google, it had good reviews so we decided to try it. The food was great, it was 22TL for meat and cheese pitta which was delicious. The staff was super friendly and spoke English well. The service was also fast, but we seemed to be the only ones due to recent the lull in tourism... More

I was very excited to dine at this restaurant as I had read great reviews about it. Unfortunately it was my least favorite restaurant during my 12 day trip in Istanbul. To start off we ordered the mezza plate and a kibbe plate. The mezza contained stuffed grape leaves, yogurt dips, eggplant dips, and tomato dips. All were very delicious... More

This is just off the main avenue - about 300 feet from Cembrelitas tram station. Don't let it's simple exterior fool you, there's a reason its highly rated by TripAdvisor peeps. I spent one night alone transferring in Istanbul and the hotel recommended this place. I had a beer and the beef kabobs for less than $15. Salad was fresh... More

I was lucky enough to visit Istanbul again. For the third time I visited Antakya and Murat received my family and I with arms wide open. His warmth, service and persona is what brought me here again, other than the kebabs and the delicious Turkish pizzas. When someone recognizes you after almost a year and receives you with complete hospitality,... More

Overpriced. Not good. Not recommended. Slow service. Very friendly but too much friendly. This is a place for tourist. 70 euros for one plate each and water. It is amazing. But the most important is that food was bad
