Visited here in November so there was no que at all! The gentleman serving does seem to take a very long time to put the icecream in the cone, so I can imagine the que in summer.

If you want to taste ice cream but are worried about the sugar, this place is the right one for you. Some might think the ice cream here has a light taste but that's just normal if no sugar is added. I had yoghurt and almond ice cream and both of them had 100% natural flavours, nothing added extra. That's... More

The line is the part of the show. You may waste more than an hour of your time in the line. I had much better ones in Turkey, funny thing is, if you make a taste/line ratio you would have to wait on the line for days for the ones who are better. This is packaged ice cream + 1.... More

Don't wait for that queue. Ate there twice trying to sort out what is so special, really nothing is. The guys serves 1 icecream every 5 minutes. That queue is just about marketing I guess, not the ice cream.

I found this ice cream really tasty. This queue is a bit problem cause we waited for such a long time (around 30 minutes) and kids got bored. Staff are a bit sullen too i must add.

It's great ice cream in many flavours you won't have tried. I thought the sesame was interesting, the fig ice cream brilliant but wasn't sold on the pumpkin ice-cream. Any way, go here everyday and experiment.... It's very cheap too.

When I go to Foca, I can't live without eating ice cream from Nazmi Usta -even when it's winter! But the major flaw is you have to wait for an hour, if you're lucky!

It is homemade delicious ice cream. I recommend Sakız because it is the one very special to this region of the world. The long queue with 20min waiting time is worth it.
