This place is a real gem, counter upon counter of delicious Baklava and Turkish treats. The atmosphere is very convivial and it is a very popular place so keep you're eye out for a spare table. You have to pay at the cash desks before you collect your Baklava - very tricky if you do not speak Turkish! My tip is to take a notepad and pen and write down what you want and how much (it is sold by weight not by piece) as there are pictures and name labels of the different types of baklava on the counters.This place also serves delicious Turkish tea and coffee - highly recommended pit stop just be prepared for a bit of a mission ordering!

It becomes more than a pastry right now, you can taste various delicious Turkish Baklava types in a cafe format. Take a break in your Istanbul visit and eat baklava here....

Best baklava I've tried! the place is very busy always, it's the kind of place to eat something fast or take out. But definitely a must visit in Istanbul!

Probably the best place to taste the baklava and turkish tea. The atmosphere is very friendly, and is nothing less then excellent. Do not forget to buy some for your return to the UK because this quality is rare!
