We read great reviews about this place on Trip Advisor as well as in our Fodor's book. Our hotel also seemed to recommend it on here as well. We took that as a good sign and picked it for our first night in Istanbul. The place is very cozy and cute. For once, we weren't the first people there either which is always nice. Our issue was that we sort of ordered wrong and a few things were lost in translation. We wanted to get a few of the tapas style plates that they offer. Somehow, we ended up with 3 dip like things and weren't sure what we were supposed to dip them in (humus, zucchini with yogurt, chilis in yogurt). They all tasted good but all had the same texture which got old fast. We also had the cauliflower with tahin sauce which was also good but another soft food. My husband wanted to order the "crispy chicken" which I saw another guest order. It ended up being chicken tenders and french fries. I think this place has a lot of potential but we just ordered the wrong things. The cheesecake was delicious though. We saw other guests ordering things that looked great. The staff speak limited English so it was hard to ask for their advice. Somewhat expensive considering we only ordered 4 small plates + dessert. Maybe we need to go back when we know what to expect.
