Nothing special, seems to be a pub with pre-made buffet but you do not serve yourself. You order and the server brings to your table. I had the eggplant wrapping, it was very tasting and pasta with yogurt sauce. My tour guide also recommended this...More

Lunch was aubergine stuffed with lentils and onion topped with a tomato and a pepper. All meals come with bread. The service was chaotic but friendly and did the job. It was busy. Good value for money. I will eat here again.

We visited this restaurant on a recent trip to Turkey. We were intrigued by all the signs proclaiming " world famous". This is a fun place to eat and serves decent food, and their bombastic "world famous" made it a joy to go visit.

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
