We stopped there not for the food but for a coffee. This place is a mixt between a bistro, a coffee shop, and an hotel. Ambiance chilled, and a little bit hipster! I like it.

We tried Nakka as we were staying nearby and really loved it. There's a nice relaxed atmosphere and a great casual terrace. The food was great! And pretty large portions. We would definitely recommend it and would go back.

I and a coworker had dinner at Nakka. Reason was that we lived nearby. But the food is excellent and the service friendly. Definitely worth a try if you are near Galata.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
