Had a really good meal here, the meat was fantastic, service was great and the prices were very reasonable. Whilst clearly a more touristy place, we felt welcomed and that the quality of food did not suffer. Would recommend.

The food served was simply scrumptious, the ambiance very discerning and the service par excellence. The dinner was hosted by our FedEx Turkey colleagues. Had they never invited us we would never be able to know the existence of this glorious restaurant.

The food is good. We had mixed kebab which was 75 TL but the quantity was disppointing. Hardly fullfilling. It is quite expensive in my view

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
