Ordered and after 40 minutes of waiting with no food, we had to leave. A shame. It might have had potential. I did have an excellent traditional yoghurt drink.

Absolutely unadvisable to go there. As said in previous reviews, they try to rip you off. Offering 3 sizes of the sandwiches which are almost the same but try to charge you double for medium and tripple for the large. Although they don't have prices for different sizes on the menu nor on the cashier, so they simply count the... More

As mentioned in the other comments-awful place in terms of service and food value for money... Our biggest mistake was that we didn't read the comments before entering. We were totally disappointed by the service and though the food was average, we payed double than prices from the menu. Once we ordered no one from the staff payed any attention... More

This was a horrible restaurant, we ordered Shish kebap which was listed as 25 lira and Doner kebap was listed as 15 lira and we turned up with a bill of 120 liras. There were two other customers complained about the prices!! AVOID, TOTALLY SCAM

Stay away, especially tourists. Went there with my wife and tried to order 2 kebab meals which cost about 22TL each. Ended up having him ask us if we'd like fries or salad, assuming he meant as a side, as it comes with a salad. My wife picked fries and we got a whole side of fries costing 10TL. He... More

I've been here for dinner while I was on a trip in Turkey. My Trip was supposed to have a limited budget so no fancy restaurants at all, but this one was terrible! Waiters are misleading and making fun of you. They will offer you small/medium/large portion of each course but what they will not tell you is that they... More

Not much to add to the other reviews, just wish I'd read them before going. Charged a lot more than I was expecting, do not eat here, there are thousands of much better places that don't leave you feeling angry and unhappy

165 TL was sum of our bill that we expected to be round 45 TL from the menu prices, the silly reason was that the menu had the price of the " very small portion" but they served us the "big portion", my wife and i had the same sized sandwich but mine was 3 times the price !!! recommendation...

We came in because the place was full- no idea why?! The food was absolutely disgusting and the waiters try to upsize you and completely rip you off. They also charge you for all the Mezzes that are already on the table even if you don't eat them (which we didn't because they were foul). When we complained the waiters... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
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 nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
