We had lunch here, trying to get away from the busy and boring main street from the funicular to taksim square. Had some very tasty Turkish pancakes, and were very satisfied with the meal. Would recommend.

Come here following a recommendation from the Eyewitness guide book. Pancakes were average, ravioli lacks any kind of flavour and service was disappointing. Many more places I'd go again before here.

The food here is fresh and cheap. Our Turkish friend brought us here promising an authentic experience and she didn't steer us wrong. We enjoyed a spinach pastry made with fresh sautéed spinach, tortellini like pasta filled with meat and a stew. Everything was delicious!

What attracted us was the view from a window of local women preparing the dough. Very cozy traditional place! We ordered cheese, spinach and meat gozlemes. The inside was a bit dull but the gozleme itself was so soft and chewy!

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
