“The best?”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Not sure. Yes the baklavas are very good but you can find some good pastries almost at every corner in Istanbul

“The best bahlava in the city!!!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

I have been to Turkey several times and I have a good idea about the Turkish sweets. I have ate them all around the country and usually they are good everywhere except those ones sold in Duty Free. Nevertheless I can assure you that these ones baked and served at Gulluoglu are different. They are not better - they are fantastic. I have ordered some right there and also got 2 boxes to take away. Even in 2 days they are still delicious. If you are in Istanbul and want to try the real sweets, just take a taxi to this place and you will get the best Turkey can offer.

“Great selection of baklava!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Went there based on a documentary we saw where the presenter went to have baklava here. Karakoy is a nice area and we had a nice stroll along the front before finding the bakery. It was pretty busy, but we managed to find a seat after making our selection. It's self service so you can go to the counter and choose what you want. We just made a random selection of the baklava on offer which all tasted nice. It's a nicely decorated place and the staff are friendly and efficient. I ordered some apple tea but it came in a tea bag and the colour looked more like a berry tea, so I am not too sure it was apple tea! Also I couldn't find a toilet when I was there, perhaps it was hidden in the background : ) In general, this is a nice place to visit. There are many places selling baklava and I am not sure how they compare but it's worth a trip out to Karakoy which is a lovely area in itself.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Come and try the Baklava here - its so tasty! They also offer paket-service, so that you can take baklava home. Prices are good to - value for money. Remember - lots of people coming here, so you might wait to get a table. Staff very kind to.
