Nice, friendly service. When ordering my food I mentioned to the server that I had an upset stomach so he made me a fresh mint and lemon tea, definitely helped and tasted amazing. The food was also very delicious. Would return again!

stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
