“Good range of gifts, excellent service”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

If you want to buy Turkish gifts of good quality at reasonable prices, then this shop is the place to go. It is very close to the Sirkeci tramstop and is relatively easy to find. If you can't find it, then just ask a local - they are very helpful. The owner is a delightful person - helpful, but not pushy. When we weren't sure as to what we might buy, he made constructive suggestions. He wrapped all of our gifts very carefully and they came home with us to Australia intact and in excellent order. We had been to the Grand Bazaar, but did not buy anything there because it is so vast and daunting. When we saw this shop recommended on Tripadvisor, we decided to check it out and were not sorry. The Aslan Gift shop offers gracious personal service and all the goods have prices on them.

“A gem in the rough!!!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

I came across Aslan on the last train to Taksim Sq. We smiled at each other amongst the crowded carriage. Who would of thought a smile could bring about such a beautiful friendship. Aslan invited me to his shop, an Aladdin's cave full of wonders and treasures! I must say Aslan is a very generous kind hearted man, very honest and true to his word. Truly a gem in the rough! On a separate I would recommend Aslan gift shop to any visitor. You get unbeatable prices good customer service and none of the headache of bartering as the prices are way cheaper then the Grand Bazaar. You may think this a biased review but if the shop or service wasn't good I wouldn't of bothered. Aslan has put his heart and effort in to his shop and it really shows. Good on you Aslan! May God protect you and your family!

“Ideal gift shop”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

Came across this gift shop unexpectedly but after having been to the grand bazaar it was a pleasant surprise. Fixed prices with great variety. The staff is very helpful. Each purchase is gift wrapped too inclusive. Highly recomended!!!
