This is my favorite place to eat in Istanbul and the reason being that it serves the best baklava I have eaten in my life. Great baklava with Turkish tea.

We read that this was THE place to go for Baklava, unfortunately we were sorely disappointed. On the upside, there were so many choices, it was fun to walk around and select what looked good and give it a try. We had one walnut thing...More

In Gulluoglu they serve real baklava in Turkey. If you are used to have dried baklava; they have that option as well. Even you can taste other desserts like asure, sekerpare, tulumba ..etc. they mostly serve with serbet ( souce water+sugar + lemon sips)

Great choice of baklava and other sweets. Big variety of baklavas with pistachio, wallnuts, hazelnuts... Try it topped with freash kaymak too! They seemed to have savory pies too. With your sweets, enjoy great turkish coffee or tea.

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,

Dear Raihan. It takes more than 1,5 up to 2 hours to go by taxi to Guluoglu Karakoy from Atatürk. You can buy Guluoglu Baklava from the shop into the International Terminal. Have nice flights
