This is a real find. As other reviewers have said, the young host is charming, warm and friendly. He gave us the wifi password straight away and even pointed to a power point to charge our phones before we'd even got the menu!
The "balloon bread" was great (not heavy like the pides and pizzas), stuffed vine leaves excellent (really tasty rather than the usual bland rice) and mint yogurt dip was creamy and delicious. I had the lamb testy, a (fairly) tender lamb casserole cooked in a sealed terracotta pot, which was broken open spectacularly at the table.
Probably the best meal we had in Istanbul and very reasonable. Certainly the warmest service without being at all pushy. Go there after your tourist trips to the bazaar, palace or bazaar.
