Excellent food, with a reinterpretation of traditional turkish and middle-east dishes, all very well executed. Decor & design make it a very nice place to share a meal with friends or family. Very kind and friendly service.

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
