For those that ask for the non-smoking section, this is not your place. About half the patrons are smoking shishas, but if it does not bother you or if you want to smoke it adds to the experience. The restaurant is located at one end...More

Our accomodation in Istanbul was just around the corner from this place. We discovered in on our first night and were happy we did; we ended up going there every night. There are surely better places to eat in Istanbul because we didn't find the...More

Worth putting on your agenda if you are near the Blue Mosque in the evening. Typical turkish atmosphere with couches and water pipes together with the usual meze and kebabs etc. It was ok but no alcohol is served and the waiter did not seem...More

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
