We enjoyed a lovely brunch at this restaurant. The food was varied and tasty and the views were amazing.

Visited Ulus 29 one week ago and I can say it's one of the best dining experiences I have had in my whole life
The view is breathtaking clearly watching the Bosphorus and the Asian side of Istanbul I can say it's one of the best views ever.
The staff is so classy,polite,friendly and elegant and did their best to enrich the dining experience..
The food is exceptional the cold mezza mix and other cold and hot appetizers were tantalizing, the main dishes were out of this world, the only two flaws were the Turkish pide( pizza) and our waiter admitted it's not in it's best taste today and my Mellon sorbet was adequate, but that could not affect the overall rating of the food
It's a pretty expensive restaurant, but with the view and the quality of service and food I highly recommend it

Group business dinner and this restaurant was picked. When you first enter, you are truly drawn by the amazing views of the Bosphorus. IF you are around for sunset, it's even better. The food was authentic and a blend of Turkish and Mediterranean - my personal favorite was a ground lamb flatbread appetizer. The entrees were good, but not as good as the apps. I would recommend this spot for a drink and the view, more if you have the budget....

One of the best restaurants in istanbul with a breathtaking view, amazing ambiance and the best food. Located on the ulus hills, you feel like you're floating over the Bosphorus. After dinner, you can have a drink at the bar where the DJ plays nice music. I definitely think ulus 29 is a must try.

This has to be one of the best restaurants I have ever been to, it is just so special. It is quite tucked away but so worth the taxi ride as it has the most amazing view of Istanbul you could see. It is on the European side but you feel as if you are on the Asian side as it looks back down to Dolmabache Palace which at night is all lit up, its stunning. The waiters were excellent, the food was fantastic with a great choice and they even brought me a birthday treat. Once dinner is over there is a fabulous bar where you can dance or have a drink or both. It was recommended to me by a Spanish friend and he was so right about it being a must do restaurant. We would definitely go back again.
