This restaurant was recommended, both from our guide book and hotel. Delicious, traditional ottoman/Turkish food, just off the very busy street up to Taksim square. The food is pre cooked so you can go choose what you want, with the wait staff explaining exactly what everything is, so you know what you are getting. Or you can order off the menu. The bechamel lamb was delicious!

1: In this restaurant don't forget to taste the delicious pomegranate juice - freshly made from real fruits! Really impressive!
2: Try the pistachio and poppyseed cake for dessert -
3: The main meal was ok - but mostly impressed by the juices and the desserts.

this place used to be very good-always
I tried several dishes this time and the bill was very hefty for Turkish standards.
Most of the stuff I tried was either overcooked or undercooked.
I would not rate this place any more.
Maybe they have changed the cook or something?

We were recommend by our hotel reception. I thought it was way too overpriced and overrated for the hype. The food was ok, but my wife told me (I'm vegeratian) that she had better food at all the other places in the city. I would strongly recommend to avoid
