This restaurant has the best customer service and food in Istanbul. It’s a hidden gem! I like to spend my money in a place that I am wanted and appreciated. The location is near everything once you’re finished and truly I wasn’t disappointed.

stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
