And Bunka has none. Some of my visits were very yum, some of my visits were average. Never below average and that's a good thing i guess. But when it's good, price / performans ratio is very nice.

Small sushi restaurant, nice japanese atmosphere. Sushi very well prepared. Japanese beer available, no wine. Can be cold in winter time.

I did enjoy the environment. I ate only sushi. It was not bad, but the tuna inside the sushi was not fresh and the "yaki nori" was like "plastic". Also they didn't have Japanese beer Asahi or Kirin Ichiban it's a shame because they are...More

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
