“A gem of a restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

We simply fell in love with Tag. We came across it on our first night and did end up returning for a second meal later in the weekend. The waitress was very sweet and service was good. The traditional food was amazing with several other choices that kept our son happy. It's not a huge place, but you won't regret a visit.

“Extremly cozy place, feels like beeing at your friends home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Living in Istanbul for 1 and ½ year and visited TAG for the first time this sunday. This is already a favorite place. Food is excelent served in a very nice way. The music playing in the background is soft with a feelgood touch, tough I heard it is a great place to go later in the night for some more upbeat tempo with a lot of cocktails to choose from. I will so take my visitors from Sweden here and not only once! Great place to visit with family or boyfriend for a cozy dinner or to party with friends.

“Great, small and unpretentious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Had a simple, affordable but excellent dinner at Tag. They also had a few good vegetarian dishes. Staff was friendly. Good music. I heard it turns into a club later at night. Recommended! Glad I followed the earlier tripadvisor recommendations.
