Restaurant was clean and ok. Not too busy yet good location. Salads, and appetizers were very small portion and tasteful. Main dishes (liver, adana, kebab) were ok and not great. A bit dry and lacking marination/taste. The restaurant had very high rating on google reviews...More

Visited with 6 colleagues whilst working in Istanbul. If you want uniform chairs and fancy cutlery then this is not for you, however if you seek great value, well prepared and plentiful Turkish food in authentic surroundings then you should give this place a try....More

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
