The food was excellent. The wait staff was excellent and so accommodating in explaining all of the foods and making recommendations. It was a great place to take a quiet break from the noise and solicitation of the Bazaar.

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

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
