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.

Vibrant and full of colour an original Ottoman passage where coffee meets the nargile and turks hang around to paly tavla. A true taste of original Istanbul's colours and aromas. Very close to the grand bazar and away of its turistic decadance. A must see...More

Best kahve and sisha we've had in our 3 weeks in Turkey. It is also a popular chill out area for locals (and some hipster tourists) to sisha. (So it kinda feels like a gas chamber as well, esp if you do not smoke)

The best and the oldest Shisha garden in Istanbul. Authentic, friendly, not pricy at all and very heartfelt.

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
