Got here for a shisha (narghile) and got charged for 150 lira (price of a good meal or a new shisha). I would say a bad experience. So beware on the price or ask in advance.

This restaurant is a great spot on a much gentler street than other restaurants in the area. There is a nice ambiance and a great menu. Best of all is the staff. The waiters are easy going and it’s very easy to have a good...time with them and to get answers you might have about sights around Istanbul or greater Turkish culture. The testi kebab makes for a cool show of fire when the dish is served so consider choosing that item off the menu!More

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
