When visiting Istanbul and wanting to eat meat, there is no better place to go for good food then Hamdi. Sadly, they know they are good and so the service is not the most attentive but the food does more than make up for that.

An istitution 'chain' of high quality Turkish specialties: from the meat dishes to mezzeler (appetizers) and desserts. Their baklava and kadaif are one the best in town. It's also a good adress for a morning snack or mid-afternoon pause.

a rooftop restaurant with amazing view for the sea, the kebab is delicious. The place was hot the time we were there, seemed like the AC was not working very well.

Located not far from the Spice Bazaar. Regretted the walk from where I stayed, Doubletree Sirkeci. The food was nothing extraordinary, the service was not friendly. Probably good for local, not so much for tourist.

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighbourhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
