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.

We found this place by chance, whilst walking back to our our hotel, fed up with the stress of the Main Street .... my food is the best - eat here etc etc. What a delight Deniz was charming, he let us look at the menu seated us quietly and gave us time. We could taste the wine before ordering and then left in peace to chat and make choices. The food when it came was lovely and portion size good. Complimentary dessert and comfortable relaxing meal we chose more snacks than main courses club sandwich, Pide and veggie pizza would be happy to go back for mains and I am sure the would be delightful, thank you

Amazing place. When you’re going through the tourist spots and feel hungry, you just need to walk a little further directly to this place. Food is great, portions are huge, personnel is just perfect. Our waiter went an extra mile with us: brought us complementary desserts and made funny napkin origami. We were really happy about our time in mr. Cook :)

Get slightly off the beaten path and have the most delicious meal of your trip. Mr. Cook is so excited to share his food with you, that he’ll ask you for your food preferences and make an off-menu suggestion. Do yourself a favor and take him up on it! We have had incredible food on our visit, but Mr. Cook takes the cake. Plus, they offer free WiFi, the music of your choice, and anything you need to be comfortable (queue electric fans & a bucket of ice to go with your water in the middle of a hot day). Prices are super reasonable. You will not regret this stop on your trip.

We were ordering off the menu, and the waiter offer a small plates for us to share - one with meza, one with meat & chicken and one with fish (sea bass and another fish). We were 5 people, and two of us also ordered entrees, since these were more of plates to taste the different food. They brought out 3 huge plates of food, with prawns, mussels, shrimps, calamari. It was enough food to cater an event. We asked to cancel the other dishes, and didn't know what to make with all this food. He had never mentioned prawns, and we don't even like prawns and we had not asked them to cook them for us. We were alarmed to see that much food and did not really now what to do. We could not even eat 1/3 of the food he brought out. The bill came to 1920 lira and included 425 lira of VAT which is not generally charged separately in restaurants. The prawns that nobody wanted were 600 lira. We argued about the bill and deducted the VAT since clearly that was not correct. Normally, we have been eating out at similar restaurants with similar prices and the spending about 250 lira for lunch per day. I think he just figured we were foreigners and would pay whatever he put on the bill. Super uncomfortable situation.

Went with my girlfriend. All smiles and great atention. In the background, this guy was trying to upsell absolutely everything without letting us know. A $50 dollar bill unded up costing $160 because of all the markups, tip included, food we thought was a nice gesture, etc. I would never ever go again to this place. It's a total ripoff.

Atmosphere was well presented, littley funcky, mixed with bluse and jazz, giving a feeling like you participate in an episode of 'Friends'. Food was warm, well balanced with flavours of spice I would only assume you can get in Turkey, mushroom and lentils soups with smooth and warm hummus, together with stimmy pitta bread that was almost breathing while being served is one of the combinations I would personnaly advise to try upon your visit. Verry well done and well worth. :)

Interior is cozy and stylish, music fits the relaxed mood and the atmosphere of this place. Menu offers a large variety of traditional dishes like seafood, meat as well as pastas and many more for your pleasure. Staff and owner of this place are extremely welcoming and can tell you anything you want to know about each of the dishes as well as make a personalised one based on what you like and would like to taste. I ordered a seafood plate with shrimps, midis, calamari and mullus - it was cooked masterfully and served extremely well. This made me sure I’ll definitely go back to try something different next time as I’m sure this place won’t disappoint me. I would recommend this place to anyone who are looking for delicious food and an experience of being in such a cozy place with a welcoming owner.

My Husband and I went here tonight to eat on our last night, amazing! The food was delicious, homemade bread freshest vegetables and tastiest chicken. The service was impeccable, the young man who served us couldn’t have been nicer, he made our visit all the better. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting.

My friend and I had such a lovely dinner at Mr Cook after a busy day in Istanbul. The food was delicious with options for everyone, including vegetarians. I would recommend the Meze board, it had lots of dips and freshly made bread. The staff were very hospitable and made us feel really welcomed. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area looking for yummy food at a very reasonable price.

We ate there on Saturday following reading the review here, the place was quiet with no music or atmosphere, a few tourists (6 in total) were there possibly influenced by the reviews here. The service was good and the waiter was polite but to be honest we felt completely scammed. My partner ordered a mr cook special for his main (recommended by the waiter) and I ordered shrimps but they served us both the special which is around 1200 TL per head, so £50 for the 2 of us roughly, whilst it was quite nice it wasn’t anything special and no better than other restaurants we ate in, we had starters and some bread a beer and wine, the whole bill came to £110 we could have eaten somewhere a lot nicer for the same money. I would not recommend sorry!

Seven minutes from the blue mosque,be sure not to miss this excellent, friendly restaurant with tasty food, quick service and reasonable prices. The chef always includes some sort of present, be it a couple of small freshly made baklava with a little chocolate or a freshly baked focaccia as a starter. Recommended!

After being pestered by relentless hawkers it was a pleasure to stop at Mrcook who allowed us time to consider the menu and was altogether helpful. We enjoyed moussaka and lamb kebab with huge crispy bread to mop up the remains. Will definitely be back.

Food is amazing and the owner and his family are inviting. Had a guy on the street shag us and took us to look at the menu. After looking at the menu, we decided we wanted me street food because we like the smaller places. Mr Cook himself came out and ask if he could cook for us. We told him what we were looking for and he did just that. The spicy kabab with potatoes and salad was amazing. They also make their own butter garlic cheese appetizer. All the food was hot and fresh and the bill was also palatable. Pardon the pun. If we are ever back in Kusadasi we will return without a doubt. He has been open only 2 months and is worth the short walk from the pier.

We bumped into this restaurant by chance and we absolutely loved it. Waiters were Incredibly friendly and professional and the cuisine was simple but extremely tasting in particular we’ve never found another bread like theirs somewhere else all over Istanbul. Firmly recommended if you are looking for a typical Turkish place with high quality and competitive prices.

Sultanahmet
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 retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
