Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a lovely restaurant! We had the amazing 'meal in a pot' which was a beef stew cooked really well. It is cooked in a pot then they bring it out and pour hot ashes over it - quite spectacular! And then they knock the...top of and serve. SO tasty...I didn't want to eat anything else after so I could keep that taste! Lovely friendly staff too. Highly recommended. (Visiting from UK)More

My friends and I were warmly welcomed by Emrah.He spoke perfect English and his colleagues explained some dishes to us.We all enjoyed a mezze starter & our various main courses plus the food tasted delicious.The wine was somewhat moderately priced for expensive Istanbul. Service was...well paced and food presented with some flair. We went twice as all the staff were so jovial and appreciative of our business. Its in a great location & easy to get to from Sultanamet. We thank all the guys for making our friends birthday special….Plenty of Vegetarian options too!More

My wife and I were looking for an Instanbul dining experience away from the main tourist streets and we were very happy to come across this gem of an eatery. The service was friendly and the prices reasonable. Most importantly, the food was delicious. I...had the chicken shish and my wife had the stuffed eggplant. Highly recommended.More

Vegetarian, and fed up of all the restaurants offering the same few options? Ok, so Garden Mezze does do a vegetable casserole, but they have other options that we didn’t find anywhere else. And they were delicious. The place was full, by the time our...complementary bread and olives arrived, with plenty of locals eating there. The atmosphere was great, and the decor of a certain style, and not at all pretentious.More

an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
