My guide book highly recommended this place, so even though I was watching my sugar and triglycerides, I gave the place a try.
I was first struck by the marvelous decoration of the place and the sheer number of customers there. I thought these are signs of a deserved reputation. How wrong could I be. For someone who speaks no Turkish, the place was difficult to figure out. It took me some minutes to realise that I needed to pay at a separate counter in order to get food - there were no signages, no people to help you out but people everywhere to crowd out any order in the shop.
The staff was rude and slow to clean tables. I sat at a table the whole time with several sticky plates in front of me. As for the food, I reckon that I have a sweet tooth but the baklava was really too sweet. I gobbled down 2 pieces but was really worried about getting a diabetic shock from the third. 7 liras is not a lot, but if I need a packet of sugar, I can get it for 1 lira in a supermarket. Interestingly, I tasted baklava elsewhere in Turkey and it was not nearly as sweet.
