We've been going to Olu Deniz for 5 years now and actually got married there this year. Sultan Ahmet was the first restaurant we ate in and has stayed our favourite since that first year - and yes they got me on the bar dancing, but I won't be doing that again ;)
We made close friends there in the first year and although some faces have left, and new ones have arrived the attitude of the staff who combine proffessionalism and friendliness is second to none, just something that you would so rarely be met with in the UK and still pay reasonable prices for the food and service.
We've known Murat since out first year and he's an absolute star and the owner is really good to talk to.....I like them all!!!!
The food is also amazing, by far the best we've had. We always save up for the Anfora Kebab. There's a couple of reviews on here that have complained about the service and the food being expensive, unfriendly and not fresh - we've NEVER experienced that in this restaurant but I suggest that if you want burger and chips, this is not the place to eat - it's traditional, high class, top quality Turkish food, what you'd expect to find but absolutely delicious - I've never been able to fault a meal there. We took our whole family there this September 2009 and they all enjoyed their meals and the staff (who gave us a celebratory bottle of champagne as our wedding present)
Thank you to all of you in Sultan Ahmet and counting down the days to next September.
