The cafe is located directly opposite the Mango store on İstiklal street. We sat at the upstairs seating area and ordered the onion rings, margherita pizza, and mushroom risotto. The risotto and pizza were especially tasty! They charge a 10% service charge on top of your bill. When we exited, we were talking to the seating host who stands at the entrance of the cafe. We accidentally dropped a purchase of ours and the box cracked and he very helpfully asked at the neighbouring stores to get it taped for us! (We’re sorry that we couldn’t get his name)

Had the Argentinian burger, the gnocchi and the pizza all are pretty good and offer something different to the local food (which we needed a break from)

We had a light dinner. We were given a table pretty fast even the restaurant is very popular and it was full. Service was fast and polite. Prices are very affordable for visitors. Right on Istiklal close to Taksim isquare is very convenient for tourists to visit. Ordered pizza that was perfect an right on my taste preferences. Caesar’s salad was fresh but not even close to the original recipe. A pasta dish was close to Italian pasta with local accent. Bottom line sb can visit this establishment for a descent Turkish Italian quick meal with good value for money.

We were treated to the finest quality Italian/Turkish food in Taksim. Warm friendly staff and management and great ambience. Esa & Typhoon go the extra mile to make you feel at home. Highly Recommended.
