I selected Arif Yasa because of their itinerary (balance of food destination in Uskudar/Kadikoy/Tahtakale & Spice bazaar, previous reviews and price), and we do have a wonderful food tour with Arif.

... sunrise balloon flight, a fabulous "lifestyles of the rich and famous" Bosphorous tour in a private yacht, and a back streets of Istanbul food tour that introduced us to strange and delicious tastes and sights.
An evening cruise down the Bosphorus River at night proved the Istanbul deal breaker - a really majestic city at sunset with a very special visit to a friend en route with the most delectable food imaginable.

We had such a great time with Oz that we wound up spending most of the day together walking around, eating great food, and hearing all about the history of the country.
Food, drink, and markets are daunting in a new country, but the guides brought us to shopkeepers we felt we could trust, and we thus discovered so much more than we would have on our own.
just bar
#28 of 87 Food & Drink in Istanbul
This little bar sits between a cluster of restaurants and is perfect to grab a drink or two while you choose where to eat.
The owner won't try and sell you food, as most do (although he's happy to recommend where to eat).
