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.

After having read great reviews about this restaurant, I chose it to go an visit for my birthday meal while in Istanbul. The food from the menu of local dishes was very disappointing. My lamb had very little taste and my wife's chicken was reasonable...in portion size but dry and tasteless. There was also no atmosphere, perhaps because we arrived too early at 1845 hrs when there we not many people there. The waiter who greeted us was friendly enough, but most of the time the staff were elsewhere and not watching over their guests in case they wanted anything.More

As we walked around , we stumbled by this restaurant, for a small dinner. We ate outside, the decor was charming. We had the lentil soup with lemon on the side. It was hot and delicious. We had the chicken kebab plate which also was...tasty and fresh. We would definitely come back.More

Is a cozy place where excellent cuisine, atmosphere, and service come together. At the entrance to the restaurant, guests are greeted by friendly staff who immediately create a sense of warmth and hospitality. The menu includes a variety of culinary masterpieces prepared from fresh and...organic ingredients. The restaurant is designed with a modern, nature-inspired decor, using natural materials. It's a place where you can create unforgettable moments in the company of family and friends.More

This is our third visit to Istanbul and the third year of us eating at the Green Garden. It’s a bit off the main centre but not too far but their food is bang on point every time we come. The flavours are the best...ever and always a highlight. I m a vegetarian and they are always accommodating. Prices are very reasonable for the quality as well as the drinks. We ve eaten in other places but this is the only place we eat now.More

This is a really cosy and good spot having a good meal or shisha. We took airbnb as well. Comfortable bed, good bathroom, really central, but quiet location. The people are very kind and helpful.

Hi, Although our visit was in April 2021. We didn't have to reserve a table when we went there, infact we were welcomed warmly and were given the best seat in the restaurant. Hope this helps
