In this restaurant foreigners have tot pay sky high prices for moderate food. A 3 star Michelin restaurant is cheap compared to this. Service was bad. This is a DANGEROUS restaurant for foreigners

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
