We went there to eat dinner and we left paying for nothing!!!! We payed 134 and the food was terrible/old and smelled very bad! It's was clearly that the food was incredibly old and the only thing they did was to warm it! We got the food after 4 minuts!The owner/waiter were very rude. Such experience ruins the whole trip!...

We went there for the dinner, and we had a bad moment. The food was good, but they always try to charge you as much as possible, they are not simpatic and you are never quiet having your dinner. They are typical dishonest people with turists, they charge things you didnt ask for.

This restaurant is very pleasant to eat in. There is quite a big choice of hot foods you can choose from, also many dishes can be ordered. The prices are very reasonable and the service obliging. Always when I'm in Istanbul I eat my dinner here.

I feel compelled to write this review, not just because of the flagrant scams going on with charging for extras etc, but because there is a grill for spit roasting chicken and I watched them on two consecutive nights (2nd night I was in cafe across the street) and the place the cooked chicken on the bottom of the oven...

We have eaten here several times over the past 3 years. Our most recent visit will be our last. The waiter was most unhelpful and actually noncooperative. We ordered ayran (a drink) with our meal. He insisted that they didn't have it and wanted us to have coke instead. We finally gave up and accepted the cokes. Later we realized... More

It's a restaurant with great food. The service seemed good and you feel that you're between the locals.

This was one of the few places we chanced upon for lunch and so hadn't read any reviews etc (thank god we didn't read the reviews). I quite liked the food and specially the red lentil soup. Their meat dishes were good too as was the pizza we ordered. The restaurants top floor overlooks the market which is a decent... More

Ate here during a recent business trip. The waiter on the serving line added items to my plate that I had not ordered. He implied that there was no cost, but that is not the case. I'll find another place to eat.
