There aren't much shops that are familiar particularly if you're from the UK. The interior is beautiful but there wasn't much beyond that. The best thing at the mall was the observatory deck which gave a panoramic view of Istanbul.

The windows on the top floor were so dirty that nothing could be seen from there. And we paid 27 Turkish lira for nothing. At the information when I tried to claim my money back, the lady there didn't even speak English.....

This is a must see in Istanbul. The view from the observatory is stunning as only then you can really see the greatness of the city. They offer a 4D tour of Istanbul, there is a restaurant and a bar.
