One of the most picturesque panoramas in Istanbul. Foods above the average, salads are my favorite. A little bir crowded.

I visited Big chefs at SAW airport in Stambul. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of cooking and their taste. Chicken pasta and lentil soup for Breakfast made my day.

Location is lovely and the food is very good. Been here a couple of times now and will come back on our next trip. Good pizza & milkshakes. Close to the ferry stop.

Very good place to eat near the pier, a bit crowded thought the service was very fast. The restaurant is large and the variety of food is also large and interesting.

Except the crowd and difficulty to find a place to sit, it is a great experience, delicious as always. This is the best settlement among all Bigshefs.

Food is average to good. Staff are extremely unprofessional. They made everything a problem, refused our requests and gave us a hard time.

Visited here recently on a business trip to Istanbul. Menu is huge with plenty of choice and the setting is beautiful with outside seating. Food and service both excellent.

I enjoyed my late lunch at Big Chefs. The decoration was great and my lunch too. I had a delicious tuna salad with fresh vegetables. And roasted salmon was ok.

Haklısınız, yemekleri problemli, lezzetsiz. Şefin dikkat etmesi gerekli. Yağından ve malzemesinden, pişirilmesinden kaynaklanıyor kanaatindeyim.
