I am all up for the power of Internet and sharing first hand experiences versus biased reviews disguised as "professional", but in some cases I've found this approach too naive and a little deceiving.
About this restaurant, for instance, the food was just decent: the mixed plate was extremely expensive, and the quality of the pida lower than the ones you can find at the street vendors. Not to mention the wine - price and quality didn't match at all...
The location is somewhat convenient because it's close to Aya Sofia and the Blue Mosque in Sultanahmet, but the place itself is poorly decorated, and the lighting is wrong.
Please be aware that I am certainly not looking for a western luxury vibe in a magic city like Istanbul, but if you research a little better, with the same amount of money you can pick a real high end authentic restaurant, while here you only get a student cafeteria/airport kind of quality, paying full price.
Obviously, the many reviewers who gave this place 5 stars did not know what "good food" means, or just got a little too excited about the idea of sharing college style "I was here!" kind of pictures...

We tried this restaurant in early January. It was the best value we found in Sultanamet! Great bread, nice salads, paid only 30 tkl for 2!

I came here multiple times on my trip to Istanbul. The food is just so good & the service so friendly, that I kept coming back. Their prices are really reasonable as well. Even their house white wine is an enjoyable wine.

I had a favorite item called sigara boregi. It was supposed to be for breakfast, but theirs was so good that I ordered it any time of day. If you are in Istanbul please stop here & it. It's delicious.
