My wife had bream which she said was very good. I had a mixed grill, but the chips, rice and fried tomato were all luke warm. I can speak enough Turkish so that the waiter understood that wanted warm food, but he didn't do anything for me. As soon as my wife finished, we paid and walked out.

Having been to this restaurant two years ago when the person in charge and the waiters assured my friends and me that they were serving beer until we ordered food and then they told us that they didn't serve alcohol. As I went to the same street for lunch today and as my friends wanted to have fish this restaurant... More

We went there to eat dinner and we left paying for nothing!!!! We payed 134 and the food was terrible/old and smelled very bad! It's was clearly that the food was incredibly old and the only thing they did was to warm it! We got the food after 4 minuts!The owner/waiter were very rude. Such experience ruins the whole trip!...

We went there for the dinner, and we had a bad moment. The food was good, but they always try to charge you as much as possible, they are not simpatic and you are never quiet having your dinner. They are typical dishonest people with turists, they charge things you didnt ask for.

This restaurant is very pleasant to eat in. There is quite a big choice of hot foods you can choose from, also many dishes can be ordered. The prices are very reasonable and the service obliging. Always when I'm in Istanbul I eat my dinner here.

I feel compelled to write this review, not just because of the flagrant scams going on with charging for extras etc, but because there is a grill for spit roasting chicken and I watched them on two consecutive nights (2nd night I was in cafe across the street) and the place the cooked chicken on the bottom of the oven...
