We are a family run business here in the heart of London. We have established ourselves for over 30 years in the United Kingdom. Our restaurants' roots come from Anatolian Turkey. We are proud to have introduced the Turkish Anatolian culture to London 30 years ago. We've combined years of traditional food and modern taste to provide to our customers here at Istanbul restaurant. We also run a wide variety of desserts and cocktails, from pina colada's to strawberry cheesecakes to accompany our mainly Turkish based menu.
