“Nice turkish food, cosy atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

The price of the food here is just right, and a bit cheaper than most of the restaurants I've been to in Sultanahmet. Inside the cafe, the deco is like a boutique with all those lamps on the ceiling, really nice.

“An Amazing Ibrahim”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Dear all,
I have just the most advanced Waste-to-Energy process in Istanbul. I love the city but find that the variety of local food is a bit boring. This is UNTIL I went to Cafe RUMIST and met with its amazing owner i.e. Ibrahim.

The food is the best Turkish meal in 3 days. The meat is very tasty & juicy and the service is great, the ambient is excellence. So what can I says, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

The stylish owner, Ibrahim will keep you exciting as well as his top sale kid. This young man is very encouraging and yet has a wonderful Turkish manner. tTHis is not include the beautiful old city area around there with its charm and characteristic.

What an amazing café in Istanbul. A true gem! We sat outside on cozy couch surrounded by beautiful lanterns sipping tea and having a great time on our Girls Trip! The owner is very friendly which made the experience even better.
