“Awesome restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

This place was the highlight of my trip. It was right outside of our hotel. The owner was very hospitable, he booked tours and appointments for us. Helped us out. Treated us like family. I highly recommend this place to anyone coming. We call the owner brother after 2 days of being here.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

We had a great dinner and returned for an equally great lunch the next day. The outside area is very cool. They do not serve alcohol, but as mentioned in other reviews you can have the same food across the street at the Tope Deck - we really liked the atmosphere so we chose to do without the drinks. I too had and enjoyed the clay pot kabob, which they will make for 1 person at half price. I also had their fantastic version of the Iskender kebap. We had their regular pizza, which was ok - but it is Istanbul after all and not Naples. The whole area around the restaurant was our favorite in Istanbul - a lot of cool restaurants, bars and hotels.

**As mentioned in another review - the "point me there" feature on the Trip Advisor City Guide is off by about 2 blocks**

“Good restaurant nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

I had a kofta type thing and some other steak in paprika sauce thing which I can't name. Food was nice. They have a range of juices but no alcohol. It seems they also do food service across the road to top deck cafe and bar who do serve alcohol.

My husband and I had a great brunch at Rumist before heading the Blue Mosque. We chatted with the Owner, Ibrahim who gave us great info about the city.
