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.

Fabulous restaurant. We were seated on the rooftop terrace under the stars which was an amazing experience, great cocktails and most of the food was exceptional, especially the smoked bonito starter and lamb main. My husband had the beef shank which was served similar to...a hash, this was the only dish which was disappointing. A complimentary dessert was provided but both had cream so no good for me. More limited menu than that on the website, so for someone who is lactose free, due to an extreme allergy - not choice, I was more limited for options than I expected.More

We had lunch here after a wonderful morning in the adjacent Turkish bath. The food and service was excellent. The chef sent us complimentary dishes to try. The liver was one of the best I have had and the salad was delicious. The humus was...so creamy and delicious. Not intending on having dessert, we were offered the most amazing poppy seed almond biscuit set in a meringue called seker pare. It was absolutely amazing!More

We dined at Oryantal after our Turkish bath experience. They are one of the few restaurants with high quality meats. Lamb was tender and the beef ribs pide was delicious, different from other restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful. The portion of the food...was big enough for a hungry bodybuilder. Food was perfectly seasoned. Highly recommend!More
