Extremely high price for a terrible taste. Because of its location it attracts people. Be aware that there are no prices or menu anywhere. A complete rip off. The saddest part is what you taste here has nothing to do with the Turkish cuisine.

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
