“Average - nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

Ate her because we were to late to book something this busy friday evening. This was an impuls choice, and it proves that there is a big difference from being organised or haveing good luck to beeing not so luckey. The food was ordenary and cheap, but thats about it. It is also very noisy here, because of the tram running by every 5minutes.

“Just a great little cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

The perfect place to take a breather from a walk around the city. A very solid menu serving carefully prepared items. Perhaps the word that sums this place up is "refreshing." Super clean and professional, they serve outstanding lunch food that distinguishes itself from the seemingly endless sea of Turkish restaurants selling pretty much exactly the same stuff. Don't miss this cafe.

“Good option for a quick dinner in Sirkeci”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

We shared a chicken wrap and meze -- very good food and service. Not the best value for money but decent for a quick bite.

“Hassle free eating!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

We were so tired of being hassled by every waiter at every restaurant that this restaurant was like a breath of fresh air!
The food was lovely, the prices very reasonable and the staff friendly

“Nontradional Turkish food, very good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

I can recommend the villager kebab and follow it up with some homemade rose flavored ice cream. Very comfortable atmosphere and good service.
