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.

Food was very good. The traditional manti is amazing! Definitely get that! Service was excellent. Staff are beyond friendly. A touch pricey, but worth it since there aren’t any bait and switch tactics or anything of that kind.

In an area with lots of mediocre tourist eateries, this restaurant stands out for its very good food, lovely ambience and good service at a reasonable price. Two delicious courses and 2 glasses of wine cost me 1800 lira, about 50 euros. Definitely recommend. The...stuffed figs for dessert are amazing.More

We wanted a rooftop restaurant at sunset to see Istanbul light up. This restaurant delivered on that but the real highlights were the food & the service. Located in a hotel, the menu gas cold & hot appetizers, a menu that identifies ingredients associated with...food intolerance, and an interesting wine menu. The Ottoman chicken was delicious as was the lentil soup. The server spoke English perfectly & did a great job navigating the menu & suggesting an interesting wine. Highly recommend.More

I visited the bar on a Friday afternoon and the staff were all great and helpful. Espresso martini is my favourite drink and when I ordered it they said it is the best espresso martini in the country, it was high expectations but it delivered....It was very delicious! I came back the next evening to try their signature cocktails and they did not disappoint either. Great drinks and great service!More

Our favourite restaurant in Istanbul! The views over Istanbul and the Bosphorus are stunning. The restaurant is also really lovely. The food is amazing. We particularly recommend the mezze, especially saksuka, imam biyaldi and the liver. The wine here is also great. Really excellent service,...particularly from Ugar.More

It's unusual to have a cooking class in a working restaurant kitchen, then enjoy our efforts at an elegant restaurant with fine service. Many thanks to Murat and his team!

We stayed in the Yasmak Sultan Hotel on our recent visit to Istanbul. On the second evening we decided to eat in the hotel. We were extremely happy with the meal. The food quality was very good, cooked to our request. The service was impeccable....There is a modest choice but that is because they cook it for you. The Head Waiter was very knowledgeable ably assisted by his smiling and happy staff. Ceylin and Nakita were particularly friendly and helpful. We were so impressed we decided to go back the next night and the quality and attention to detail was repeated. We also repeated the desert which we would recommend. Turkish Knife; do not be put off by the word cheese, it is delicious. We shared it but I had to watch my wife as her fork was making more lunges than mine.But worry not, I managed to get my fair share.More

I was initially a bit concerned- because it is a restaurant within a hotel- but my worries were wasted just after a few moments. Although we were initially offer a table close to a passageway, the head waiter noticed my disappointment and changed it on...the spot. The service is excellent: the entire staff was very professional, polite and considerate showing attention to details and to customer's desires. A truly flawless eating experience with an appealing menu choice, delicious food and a welcoming atmosphere.More

Lovely restaurant with great views! If you want the view you need to ask for a table near the window and book in advance. We found the service very good, especially as I have an unusual condition requiring a specific diet. The cost of the...meal was reasonable given the quality of the food at approx £100 for 2 with a starter, main and desert a beer and water. Would book again if we are in IstanbulMore

We really enjoyed both dinners here. It is relaxed and lovely. No pressure to have an enormous meal. Both days we had been busy so only wanted moderate, easy dinners and they were very accommodating. Can highly recommend the chicken with apricot/ginger/cinnamon with seasoned rice...(main course), the shared 4 meat skewers (chicken, beef, lamb, meatballs) with vegetables (main course). The two different desserts we tried were fantastic as well. We shared one on each night and there was plenty to share. The stuffed figs with pistachio cream and also the baklava. Both yummy. Sorry no photos as I was too busy eating :)More
