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.

I went there twice in my 4-day stay in the old city. I found it online, so firstly it has a very attractive look from the out side, along a quiet and clean street. The dishes, especially the chicken soup, it's like comforted my stomach...during the journey. The staffs, they are so kind and considerable. In short, I recommend.More

Arriving in Istanbul from France, we were looking for a place to have dinner near our hotel and found this restaurant. We had two casseroles, one with vegetables and the other with shrimps, and they were both delicious ! The waiter was very nice and...offered us mezze, baklava and tea; very kind and unexpected ! We will definitely recommend this place for the quality of the food and the service.More

We had a truly excellent meal here, the food was the best we have eaten in Istanbul matched by perfect service. We would rate this as a much visit restaurant, the selection of local wines were well priced (for Istanbul). The one thing that we...have never got to grips with everywhere in Istanbul is the lack of “breathing “ space between the starters and the main course.More
