The waiter was rude and tried to recommend dishes we didn't want. Food was over priced and average in taste. Disappointing.

The restaurant is located near Topkapi Palace. It is really nice inside, really well furnished in a ancient Turkish style but the restaurant itself is more touristic than you can think. Food is average, prices are extremely high and it lacks some of the traditional...More

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
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
