“Best Curry in Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

A friend and I happened to stumble on this place by accident our first day in Istanbul, & we were SO glad we did. The food was reasonably priced (a plus for the budget-traveling two of us) & amazing. This was without a doubt the best curry I have had in a while. The humus was house-made & also amazing. But the best part was the service. Abo was so courteous & friendly-we went back a second time on our last night. This place is not to be missed!

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

After exploring Grand Bazaar my family and I wanted to eat some good turkish food. And here we found this perfect spot. It was a truly great experience. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, food was great, dessert was straight out of the oven. If you in Istanbul and you are near Grand Bazaar (which you should definitely visit) then you just have to stop at this place for lunch/dinner.
The place itself is few hundreds years old which gives it cozy and ancient atmosphere.

“Very good food, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

Went with a friend after wandering around the grand bazaar. Waiter spoke very good English and was able to answer our questions about menu items, as well as recommend dishes based on our taste. I had the beef sec kavurna which was excellent. My friend also enjoyed his meal of beef meatballs. We also spoke with the chef who explained a little bit about the business of the restaurant. At the end of our meal, we were offered free tea and coffee as well as lemon cake and cheesecake -- maybe because it was a slow day? Whatever the case, we both left very happy both with the food and the service. Dishes were generally $4-$10 for appetizers and $8-$11 for entrees.
