Kanaat Lokantasi is Home style Turkish cooking. Dishes are very tasty. My favorite Turkish dessert is Sekerpare & Kadayif. Ice cream is also specialty of the restaurant & very delicious.The restaurant is the best restaurant in Uskudar.

Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on
the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s
most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek
colony, later a haven for people from across the
Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to
Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons.
Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by
its myriad treasures than by its many thousand
