The restaurant is interesting with the history and decorations. It is right next to the rail station. It is fun to visit but do not expect to have great food or services.

Visited with high expectation, however poor service ruined excellent ambience and very good food/wine. They may continue to run the restaurant thanks to the name of 'Orient Express'. Good place to take pictures.

Great ambience and service; however, the same cannot be said about the food. Had lentil soup, a pastry with cheese and potato (this was delicious) and chicken schnitzel with rice as mains - the chicken patty was oily and salty and tasted like it’s frozen.

It felt like the food was all pre-made and as if they just put it in the microwave before serving. It is unfortunate because this place has great potential.

This is a classic railway cafe we stoped here whilst waited for a train it has a lot of great features lovely building classic dressed staff and all is good not quite five stars however it’s most defiantly four stars this time we only had soup in a cold Istanbul day but the restaurants style is what sets it apart from the rest and makes it unique
