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.

If you are in Istanbul and want to eat good quality, reasonably priced traditional food with no fuss but friendly atmosphere then you cannot go wrong with The Rainbow Fish & Meat Restaurant. We picked the restaurant because it was near to our hotel and...subsequently tried another couple of restaurants over the weekend. I think you would find it difficult to find anything better without paying a lot more. We typically eat quite early in the evening, around 18:30 hrs, even at this early time the staff were fun and friendly. The food was excellent. Sometimes we are put off by pictures of food on the menu at the entrance, and there is always someone enticing you to visit. In this instance do not be put off by that, it is just the way that they all work.More

Dropped by on a cool evening in May. Offered a table under cover and with a heater nearby. The food was excellent, the service efficient and the prices reasonable. You can see why this restaurant has such good reviews.

The restaurant has several levels, even if outside, it's not cold thanks to heat tower, quick service, good food, and complimentary tea and baklava at the end.

Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere

an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
