First of all no Aegean or region specific meat dishes , ordinary things you can find all over İstanbul. Not place for the ones who are looking for a "Meyhane".Nothing special, tomato and the cucumber is long stayed in the fridge and lost freshness . If you can reserve a table on the second floor you will have a nice... More

I had dinner with my family, we had fish and some starters with drinks. The service and the food is good but I did not like the atmosphere so much.

Sunday afternoon meal. Excellent quality in a smart restaurant in a patchy back street location. Had to ask too many times for items we ordered

You have to try fried liver its great. I had lunch, it was quiet and the service was good. I think it is the best "meyhane" in this vicinity.

Nice terras crowded with Turkish people only and off course television inside showing football (Fenerbahçe stadion is close by). When the local team scores, everyone goes crazy! As we couldn't make our choice between so many starters we asked a bit of all. The waiter came up with a choice of over 20 small dishes from which we selected 8.... More

Son derece kazık! Extremely expensive but not worth at all! Hic bir sey yeme, 100 TL. You pay at least 100 TL for nothing.

This is the second time I have been at Benusen and I am hesitant if there will be a third one. This is not one of those places designed for tourists where they serve you mezze and fish but a genuine Turkish food in a genuine Turkish ambience. In fact I had the feeling I was the only foreigner in... More

I have to be honest and say I haven't sampled the food at Benusen, but that wasn't for lack of trying. I was staying in Kadikoy with a friend and we'd walked past this restaurant several times. It was always busy, and full of locals which is always a good sign. We'd tried to get in one night but it... More
