We came to this restaurant after seeing many good reviews on it, and we weren't disappointed! Food is very tasty, the staff is very kind and willing to help (shoutout to Burak!) and offering affordable dishes. He even offered baklava and tea! Thank you !

Me and my wife visited this place today on our first day in istanbul. We were greeted well and sat to a table of our choice. Barack attended to us very promptly amd made us feel extreme welcome. The food was flavoursome and spot on. I can only recommend this place as we havent stopped smiling since we got here.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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 retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
