Delightful small restaurant conveniently located on quiet side street minutes from Hagia Sofia. Traditional and Ottoman food, including testi kebapi (dramatic presentation with diners breaking the terra cotta cooking vessel) plus flaming dishes. Reasonable and attentive service.

We ate here last night following Tripadvisor recommendations and would highly recommend it for a night of local colour and "authentic" Turkish fare. Fine dining it is not but food was very tasty as was the local red wine ....go for the Ottoman choices. Service was very attentive but not over the top although our main arrived a bit too quickly after the starter. Just check the maths of your bill, though we think it was a genuine mistake !
