“Good food, helpful staff and charming ambiance”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

This restaurant, next to the grand bazar, has a warm ambiance with his colourful Turks lamps and charming rock walls. The ‘mixed plate’ allowed us to taste different Turks meals full of flavour on our first day in Istanbul. What an experience we had. We had the opportunity to meet the owners, two Canadians who moved in Turkish. They make a great team with their Turks employees. The staff was very helpful we felt instantly relax after our long flight. Don’t miss it!

“Amaaaaaaazing restaurant, do not miss!!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

What a magical lunch we had at this restaurant. The decor is warm and cosy. The mix plates are the perfect way to sample all the traditional turkish food. Everything was tasty and well presented. The staff was so welcoming and helpful, we fell like we were part of the neighborhood. The best meal experience we had by far in Istanbul, go try it, they also have breakfast and early dinner.

We entered this restaurant just by chance when we were extremely exhausted while on our way back from the grand bazaar..
It is a small place but the food they serve is to be appreciated..
Will def go back to this restaurant on my next trip..
