Once a month I stop by for an early dinner, from my perspective it’s not a real Asian, it’s a fusion kitchen with Asian touch… The grills are overcooked (sometimes burned) and served with terrible sauce… But I have never disappointed with the soups, duck dumplings and chicken katsu curry… The waiters are very friendly, it is not pricey compare...

Sometimes you can have trouble with the items you order from the menu, it can be cancelled or... More

Server was helpful and spoke some English. Food was terrible. Gyoza were hard, tasteless and not looking good. Squid was poorly seasoned. Careless cooks.

The restaurant just outside the Kanyon mall in Istanbul is spacious and well laid out, just like in other main cities around the world. Service is quite good, even found a waiter that spoke some English. Given that they have English menus, its fairly easy for a foreigner to order. Food was 'modern' Japanese which we enjoyed very much. Overall,... More

This is the restaurant we go to if we would like a quick and delicious lunch or dinner before or after a film or a concert. We have eaten in both of its branches maybe 50-60 times and they have never disappointed us and never let us be late as the service is extremely efficient. The staff have an excellent... More

Very nice location but loosing traction recently. We ordered chili ramen but the food came with normal metal spoon. First it is a wagamama classic to serve with wooden spoon. Secondly excuse was either all were dirty or broken while washing/by customers. A select taste of Asia, hard to find in Istanbul, should be more diligent and careful. Still a... More

You have to take a look at the hearted dishes in the menu. Don't pass the sushi card. You can sit outside and enjoy the weather and the view. One of the most delicious asia food I had in my life.

I was here for a business visit so had dinner in Wagamama. The food was very good but the service left a lot to be desired. The staff took almost 10 minutes to help us with the seats and another 10 minutes to give the menu to us. Once the order was placed, they took another 15 minutes to bring... More

Staying in Sisli

Neighbourhood Profile
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
