In order to try Nargile , highly reccomend this spot for. It's walking distance from Beyazit Tramstation when you walk through Cemberlitas, it's located on your left hand side. You may feel the authentic athmosphere with Turkish coffe and tea.

Ottoman style courtyard with quality nargile. We patroned the first shop on the left. Attentive staff replace heat coals like clockwork. Best Turkish coffee we tried in Istanbul (rich, almost chocolatey). A cool, chill vibe with traditional Turkish charm.

The place only offers about 5 things on the menu (written on the wall). The shisha is great. They constantly offer you tea or coffee, which are both very good and authentic. The prices are very low. I felt very relaxed and enjoyed my visit...More

Took me back in time. Stock standard good double apple shisha and turkish tea. Will go again. Everything is well priced. If you want a 5 star hotel feel don't come here. This is for the OG puffers and kick back lovers. Great rustic feel.

Very good shisha in historical place in Istanbul. The place is very crowdy but to smoke some shisha and drink Turkish Tea one of most authentic places to go in Istanbul.

Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the

search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed

the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
