If you going to the Grand Bazzar definately you should go to this place for a lunch.
The best time is between 13:00-14:30, if you wanna try traditional food
After that you will get only grilled food(very good anyway)
When you get there ask for Husseyn- he is the best waitor- we have been there twice and we absolutely loved his service( nobody else will give you the same service there)
Love it.

We had a really nice lunch there. Arriving at 3:30 pm, we were told they nearly ran out on almost everything in the menu, however were still able to feed us. Out of the limited list, we picked a vegetable salat, and what became one of the best spinach dishes I ever had. Then we enjoyed their mixed grill and topped it with a sinful serving of pumpkin and whipped cream. Everything was fresh and yummy - definitely a good lunch spot for exhausted bazzar shoppers !

The restaurant is inside the Grad Bazaar. It offers a good glimpse on Turkish traditional cuisine. The waiter will explain to you the choices in no matter which language. Fixed and cheap priices depending on the presence or not of meat and fish. NO wine nor beer but a good stop in the middle of the shopping temptations.

This place promotes itself heaving and greets you (sells) at the door, but it works. You select the food by looking at it and then they bring it to your table. Food is good and Turkish. If your touring the Bazaar, this is a good respite.

What a little gem of a restaurant tucked away in the vast Grand Bazaar! We especially enjoyed the warm smoked eggplant dip. The food is already prepared so it makes for a quick but tasty lunch break.
