I used to go to this place twice a week as a cihangir resident, but their owner changed as of May 1 2013, and the quality bottomed while the prices spiked. I used to recommend this place, but with new owners I cannot any more.

I was excited to visit this restaurant after reading about it and the chef in a new cookbook, "Turquoise: A chef's travels in Turkey," last year. I had just moved to Istanbul and received this book as a gift. The authors talked about how the...More

Having received a good review in the Lonely Planet, this restaurant has obviously started to take advantage of tourists - providing poor service and overpriced food before they finally throw the bill on your table (before you have asked for it!). Food is nicely cooked...More
