This restaurant has a cute curb appeal with miniature houses on the side. Great customer service and the prices were affordable. They really have a nice variety and I'm definitely coming back not just for lunch but dinner as well.

This place is conveniently located close to Blue mosque. Very reasonably priced. Food is pretty good and the server was nice and attentive. It looks like a family-owned business. While some listing stated it's open 24hr, we walked by 6am and 6:45am it was dark...More

We had what seemed like remnants of a Turkish breakfast - 2 plates of jam/olives etc, 2 plates of menemen (Turkish omelette) and some tea and coffee and they charged us 190TL! Really disappointing!

We had breakfast and dinner in this place. The food was fresh, tasty and authentic. The atmosphere is amazing in the end of sultanahmet mosque and the set of obelisk

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
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
