Baklava is good. Tea was also good. A little crowded. Staff was not really talkative. Going to try hafiz mustafa next.

Remember to pay first (didn’t find any instructions on how the system worked). Unfortunately I didn’t get a lot of explanation about the different types of baklava and I think I chose wrongly because I didn’t find it anything special at al.

This place is definitely a must when visiting Istanbul because it offers a great variety of delicious and traditional Turkish baklava. They also offer packing boxes so you can take as much as you want back home. Try a chocolate one, you won't regret! :)

Very famous baklava maker in istanbul. Very good taste but a bit sweet. My favourites is the one with milk baklava (sütlü baklava). Other than sweet, they also serve some pastry like su börek, they also taste good. You can eat in-shop, but always crowded....More

Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy
is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at
the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most
historically significant area, it’s currently one of
the most happening parts of town as well. Here street
vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks
of the Horn where the views of major attractions
across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions,
