“Kudos for HATAY cuisine”
Reviewed December 18, 2013 via mobile

Modest but clean setting. The delight starts with the mezzes. An assortment of dishes, sort of appetizers to put you in the mood. Then comes the house specialities. The Clay Pot kebab is just fabulous. Make sure to order it beforehand (needs 2 hours to cook) and specify the number of people.
The muhammara & the biberli ekmek are for the hardiest , but have no fear , you can drown it with one of the best Ayrans in Istanbul.

Thank Osadra

We came here with warm welcome from the outside our waiter ibrahim was very helpful, everything was tasty the restaurant size is big and they provide free internet just ask for the password very helpful to those who don't have phone line in Turkey, I strongly recommend it for lunch hope that was helpful and you enjoy it

And on top of that they gave us a complimentary fruit dish and kanafa
( an arabic sweet ) and turkish tea on the house.

“Best in Istanbul!”
Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

I have been too many times to this fascinating restaurant with my friends. The stuff and the service are quite fantastic, considering the busy life of Istanbul. The meals are fantastic. Our favourite thing to do here is ordering a Clay Pot Kebab as the main dish; ordering Hummus, Muhammara( Its a meze with mashed peppers and walnuts) as the sides and in the end of course the famous dessert Kunefe!

This restaurant is the best in Istanbul!!!

“Interesting Anatolian cuisine”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Good kebabs and other specialties from Antakya (Antioch), but they are not successful at everything they make. Generally a good value. No alcoholic beverages, and it is a pity still Anatolia has good wines to go with kebabs.
