My wife and I stopped in this little shop just to get a bit of soup on a cold day and we were glad we did. The soup came out still boiling in a thick clay pot and a pile of sodt, chewy bread. We've been in loving in Istanbul for almost 5 months now and this was honestly the... More

Like some other reviewers, we stumbled on this restaurant when the husband who runs this place with his wife invited us in. We were pretty exhausted from a long day that had started in Istanbul and included a full tour of many of Cappadocia's sights, and so just asked him to recommend a meal for the 5 of us. I... More

This is a very basic restaurant--very limited menu but it does have wine and beer. I'd stick to the beer if I were you! The soup comes boiling hot in stone bowls with plenty of crusty bread. Spicy, wonderful. It is kind of a dive, but the food is excellent.

we stumbled into this great restaurant by accident. it was run by an old couple. not a big place, but the food they served was great. i enjoyed the lamb dishes i ordered, very unlike all the other restaurants we've been to in the area. all the customer comments (written on tissue papers) plastered everywhere was quite amazing.

A friendly fellow traveller who we met at the hotel recommended this place, and she was not kidding, it was amazing value for an unbelievable price. We ordered 3 apps between two of us and were stuffed. The stuffed tomato dolmas, pot of mixed veggies and spices and turkish pancake was absolutely delicious. These 3 apps, 2 large beers only...

We ordered a traditional pot stew but there was not a pastry on the top as it shows in front of the restaurant. And the pide we ordered did't taste fresh (we heard the sound of microwave before it came) The old man kindly offered salad and rice but finally we were charged 10 TL for it.

If you're are looking for a good food, this is the right address. The decor is not that good however food is exceptional, we tried almost everything other than pide dishes and all of them were great.
