Eventhough the food wasn't the best ne have had in our istanbul Trip, (There is some good food in beyoglu or eminönu, were foreigners eat ) this restaurant has the best service you could imagine. The waiter apo, is very nice. So, of you are AT the grand bazaar, and hungry you can go there.

We stopped here for a late lunch as we were all shopped out! We only realized afterwards that we had hit a favorite spot amongst trip advisor people. Wonderful chicken casserole and very generous pouring of their Turkish wine in this quaint restaurant! The staff were all friendly. Highly recommended!

1. Food is overpriced, oily, small portions and flavorless. I ordered the moussaka - it was tiny, tasted like cheap tomato sauce 2. Salad had sand on it we left 3/4 3. "Potatoes" on the side = tiny portion of french fries Please for your sake, stay away.

I went there because was high in ranking. It turned out that the food is very average, not bad, but also nothing interesting. Only one waiter was able to speak english and he speaks to all guests exactly the same jokes... The interior was very nice. Prices are good except for alcohols for which I paid much more than for...

Yes, the food was good and traditional, though I couldn't say that it's probably the best you can get in Istanbul. Even though, all guests are tourists, it has no tourist atmosphere and the owner is indeed very nice. Located close to the Bazar, however, the area is totally dead at night, so prepare to walk through dark, deserted, littered... More

The restaurant locates by the grand bazaar, with interesting internal decoration, good food & friendly manager Mr. Meimei. they will recommend you the dishes with perfect taste but rather cheap in the city. The business is always busy there, so you need to be patient & Mr. Meimei will offer you free tea & appreciate your waiting. We visited 2... More

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighborhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighborhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
