“Delicious, abundant, quick, inexpensive”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Quick ferry ride and short walk through a bustling neighborhood to Kanaat Lokantasi. Comfortable, welcoming restaurant where families, dating couples and enterprising tourists happily chow down on an abundant array of home-style dishes, very reasonably priced and generously portioned. Order beautiful vegetable dishes and salads at one counter, meats at another, rustic sweets at a third, and your dinner will be brought to your table pronto. Afterward, stroll through the nearby open air food market for culinary revelation and fun!

“Fabolous Turkish Cuisine”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

One of the best places to enjoy Turkish cuisine in Istanbul. Must try olive oil appetizers, hunkar begendi and different desserts. Payable only in cash. Always full with domestic and foreign tourists.

“real turkish”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

this is one of my favourite restaurants in istanbul. If you are looking for something real and local this is the adress. they serve so many different dishes, colds, hots, deserts, ice creams, meats, vegetables etc.. one of the oldest restaurants as well.. probably they serve for a century.. If you are staying in taksim or sultanahmet, take a boat to Uskudar, it is right behind the mosque by the pier, after dinner or lunch take a walk by the sea, down to Leander tower.. you will understand why Uskudar is the best part of istanbul, because you have the best view of sultanahmet area from there..

“Rude Service”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Visited Kanaat Lokantasi maybe 100 times over the years. Affordable traditional Turkish food is served here. Last weekend I was treated so rudely by the waiter while taking orders. I will not be going back to that place again. If you are a tourist visiting Istanbul there are much better places to visit for taste. I would recommend Borsa, Hunkar or Konyali. You will be treated much better in those places.
