Other positive reviews probably reflect the value for money (I.e. low cost) of this place. Our experience was poor - service slow and food less good than the other places we tried on the street.

Also, of you fancy a drink, this is not your place as it is not licensed, which the other reviewers don't seem to mention.

After reading all the great reviews and seeing that this restaurant is 13th in all of Istanbul we figured we would have to try it. We ordered the mezi plate 16tl, a sizzling meat plate 20tl and a chicken casserole 15tl. After waiting 35 minutes for our mezi plate we were served, iceberg lettuce with ranch dressing, a tiny scoop of old tasting hummus, some sour cream with dill pieces and a chilli paste (all of which were served free usually at our hotel breakfast). After looking back at the menu I realized that 3 of the 4 items were not those listed in the menu.

Another 25 minutes passed until we were served the most measly entrees, probably smaller than those served on the airplane.

I am very very concerned at how this restaurant can be ranked 13th of 10000 restaurants in Istanbul. This IS SO VERY INACCURATE. I am now almost glad that I was served small portions because I have an incredible stomach ache, which might be even worse if I had ate more.
