Avoid this place at all costs! They suck you in with low prices but the food is horrible, low quality and garbage! I wouldn't feed it to my dog. After my first dish came out I had a bite and it was disgusting. I told the staff expecting a replacement dish but nothing! Then I tired a falafel and started... More

We are currently in Istanbul and ended up at this restaurant today. We were shown a leaflet with prices for Pidas which were around 12 liras but when we were inside we were guided to buying something else which were two portions of chicken, two meze and two naans and the bill came to an astonishing 170 liras which included...

Just 20 meters from the main street Divan yolu and from Constantin column. Reasonable prize. Lents soup corba is good choice. Meals are from 13 to 20 liras. They will try to sell you the most expensive one. They don ´ t offer beer or wine. Try lightly salted yoghurt ayran instead. Service is fast. Just a little bit cold.... More

To be fair the food was okay, but if you don't pay attention the will bring extra items to your table that you didn't order but will charge you. There are allot of great places around Istanbul. Say away from this.

We bumped into this one, the owner talked us in, although we were starving by then and didn't want to choose too much. But the mixes kebap plate with pidas and vegs was more than aboundant for the three of us, and amazingly tasty! Definitely worth it for the price! He wanted to bring us some apetizers and he did,...

Have been in turkey a month and always been given free bread with the meal. Here they give you bread and then charge yiu for it. Queried the discrepancy in the bill and they were difficult and wouldn't provide the written break down of the bill until prompted further. Not worth it.

Food was reasonably priced and quite good, however extra charges were added for bread (which we weren't told about - NOWHERE else in turkey charges for bread). The staff then did not want to provide us with a detailed bill when we asked what the extra was.

We've enjoyed two meals here and probably be here again tomorrow night! Great tasty, local food! Why come to a country and not eat local! Handy to the tram line in Sultanahmet and across the road from Aprilis Hotel where we are staying! The owner is present each night, is very friendly and has good English! The food is all... More

My husband didn't feel well and had not much of an appetite, so we decided to order just one plate of lamb kebap, one plate of eggplant, and salad. We got a bill of TL 70!! The owner said because he gave us two orders of lamb meat. That's such a rip off! It was clearly just one portion of... More
