This tiny place may be short on space and ambiance, but it makes up for it in food and friendliness. The Turkish breakfast for one is really enough to feed two, and the star of the meal is the basket of fresh, in-house baked goods...More

Food is local and fresh and delicious. Hummus was out of this world as was the seasonal salad. Our entree (see pic) was the lahmacun. Very interesting and tasty flavour profile.

Cozy place with a delicious fresh food. Tasty fresh bread, cheese and jam. Very quirky, and work visiting for that reason alone.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening

Datli Maya - a small oven restaurant with a big heart.

At Datlı Maya we go out of our way to mainly use ecological produce from fair trading and sustainable sources.

Our 80 year old wood-fired oven in Firuzaga is lit up early each morning to unearth almost forgotten, traditional Anatolian recipes. We incorporate our enthusiasm for contemporary and innovative methods to concoct “fast-slow food” for the conscious eater in the age of mass consumption.

Kebabs, Turkish pizzas, traditional hot-pots, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free dishes, local specialities, aromatic herbs & spices, and desserts that put a smile on your face.

Plus, cold-pressed olive oil, molasses, herbal teas, traditional tomato paste, medicinal herbs and other gastronomic treasures to take home. Either drop by for a meal and glass of tea brewed in our century old hand made copper semovar, or stay home and order a take-out.

So long as you enjoy it!
