This is a must eat restaurant : nothing like any other home style cuisine you can find in every street.

Prices are more than correct.

For the ones living on european side, or juts vsiting the city going there is nice for lunch or late lunch in the afternoon : take the boat from Besiktas to Uskudar, eat at this classic, simple but good restaurant, walk around, visit this old town of Uskudar and take the boat back. You won't regret it.

I went Kanaat Lokantası in Uskudar on sunday last week with my husband. It's location is quiet good because it's close to the wharf where you can go Eminonu and Besiktas by ferry. But the place honestly doesn't have an aspect. The food is delicious but it's quiet about your taste because if you don't like oily meal, some of them won't be your choice. Because I'd been there before I didn't choose 'ElBasan Tava' because last time it smelled and tasted oily so I had some digestion problem. I've got 'sebzeli kebap' while my husband got 'sac kavurma'. These 2 are really good. We had 'firinda sutlac' -good- and ice cream which infact must be called iceD cream. The only ice cream type was cacao. Credit card is not valid so you have to pay with cash. We didn't wait too much for service. This restaurant may be in your route if you're coming from abroad because you can find a large variety of Turkish delights.

I've been there last weekend for lunch. Mainly it is an authentic restaurant with home-type Turkish food. Their menu is wide but doesn't include all types of Turkish food. they focus on vegetables and home-type food. Very interesting for tourists. A little bit expensive for locals. Foreign tourists could find special food that they wouldn't fint in any restaurant. It is a clean, delicious and traditional alternative to kebap and fish restaurants which tourists mainly focus on. I could go there again.

Kanaat has been there for ages and has been run by the same family. You can find people from all income levels eating there. Large variety of typical Turkish dishes. Prices are still reasonable. Make sure you stop by if you go over to the Anatolian side. .

We had a great lunch in this restaurant over in Iskadar. It was spacious and clean, staff were helpful and the food was really good.
