It was our first restaurant during our trip. And our last evening we decided to spend here. Good service, free shisha as a present for repeated visit. Personal thank to waiter Mahsum and his collegues.

Located in the historically beautiful area of Istanbul, it's a hidden gem waiting to be experienced! Offering warm Turkish hospitality with outstanding food, drinks and great service. I felt so welcomed and the atmosphere was culturally stimulating. Such a memorable experience, I highly recommend a...visit to "Shadow" while in Istanbul.More

This place is a hidden gem, not far from the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. A lovely restaurant and the staff are great too. I popped in for a late lunch (Kebab in yoghurt and herbed sauce & homemade flatbread) which was amazing! Also...stayed for a tea and a chat. Headed back later that night for an evening meal of marinated chicken steak, shredded potatoes and garlic yoghurt butter sauce (equally as lovely), followed by a shisha and a beer! Thank you Matin! 🤙🏻More

Came here as it was close to my accommodation and loved it. As a solo traveller I felt really comfortable, the staff were very welcoming and the food was great! Happily came back a couple of times during my stay in Istanbul and will definitely...pop by again on my return.More
