We had walked past this place several times but enjoyed the banter with the resturant owner who tried to convince is to eat there. So on our penultimate night we returned. The banter continued, the food was good the service excellent. Overall an enjoyable evening.

A cold evening pleasantly spent under the heater with good food, well priced, and amusing conversation. The crispiest puff bread around.

I've choosen this restaurant for it's reviews on 'Le guide du routard" and "Tripadvisor" logos. It's very well placed, easy to notice but the waiters never stop bother the passengers to enter inside. The food is average, very salty and fatty. And it's relatively expensive

Very frendly staff, good food and atmosphere. Not on the crowded street which is good. Get for free a mezze until the orders came and after you get a tea for free which is cool! :)

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
