Refreshing twist on traditional Turkish cuisine - these are not your run of the mill meze! Ask chef Gençay for a guided tour of the evenings offerings, then sit back, relax and let your taste buds take over. The baba ganouche paired with crisp dried beef was out of this world and for a memorable dessert, it's hard to top honey flavored with red chillies drizzled over a creme brulee concoction. Meze by lemon tree is easy to find - and hard to forget! Situated across the street from the Pera Palace Hotel in Beyoğlu with a blue facade.

Tucked away behind the Famous Perla Palace hotel, where Agatha Christie is said to have penned "Murder on The Orient Express", this modern restaurant with its warm interiors and excellent food will be the perfect finish to a long day sightseeing in Istanbul. Chef Genchay who doubles as a guide par excellence for a select few, also turns out Turkish dishes with his own twist, beautifully presented, and delicious to the core. Start with an assortment of Mezze- ask for a sampler dish so you can try more of his varieties, and move on to casseroles, meats and top it off with fantastic desserts. My favourite was the sarma[ like dolmas] stuffed with bulgar wheat and pomegranate reduction and the monkfish casserole.
