“Great food at reasonable (ish) prices!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Ottoman style restaurant with good atmosphere and waiters with a sense of humour! The night we visited was very wet but the waiters kept us smiling .. as did the quality of the food. Guests at a nearby table had some sort of "stew" cooked in a pot and fired at the table ..very spectacular and apparently it tasted good too! For those of you staying at the Hotel Seraglio (recommended), this restaurant is within easy staggering distance!

“surprisingly cozy restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

This Istanbul restaurant is distinctive by kind of natural-cozy interior, very welcoming during winter time. Service and food is very good, and location is excellent.

“Wonderful, traditional Turkish meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

This is a fun restaurant to have a traditional Turkish meal. I enjoyed a lamb dish baked in a clay pot that the server broke at our table. It was a fun experience and the lamb stew was delicious.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

The reason that we first went to Turquoise was because of Ossie, out on the street. He and the team outside were friendly and the service was excellent. It was nice to be able to sit outside and watch the World go by. The food was good and there was a good atmosphere. Good value and definitely worth a visit.
