“Average Turkish food”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

This is one of those who are working like a factory made production,very basic and simple taste dor locals but with the extensive food exhibited in the showcase they attract the foreigners.You can not see some local people at this kind of touristic restaurants in this kind of central touristic places as they prefer to go to more local and small ones in side or back roads of yhe maim street where they have very tasty local food.However,
this kind of eateries are more popular now for tourists,first of all,they use good quality of food and nothing can be wrong here because of the flow of the running customers round o'clock.But the taste is ?!.,,

“Solid but average”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We went in for a quick lunch and for the rice - have been hungry for it after days of kebab. The prices are a bit too high as the place is pretty much canteen-like. Not the best dining experience but none of the dishes were bad.

“Expensive lunch!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Our private guide brought our family of 4 here for lunch after visiting sites in the area. After selecting our food (2-3 sides per person and only water to drink) our grand total was 117 Turkish Lira! I had told the cashier we'd pay for our family of 4 plus our guide. After sitting down to eat our guide mentioned how she is able to eat free. Hmmm...pretty sure we paid for her meal. When she went up to ask the cashier he denied charging us for her meal. Regardless, it was expensive for what we got. The prices were too high for this no frills cafeteria style restaurant. Lesson learned! Check out the menu/prices before moving through the food trough like sheeple! The food was just OK...only the bill was memorable:(

“nice turkish food”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

we visited topkapi palace for about 4hours in the morning and in a rainy day.So we were wet and so hungry. We saw the foods from out side and it looked so delicious so we went and tried it.
The food was delicious specially the soup which was so good in that rainy and cold weather. But the prices was higher compare to same ones in town. It's a touristic area so it is expected to be higher.
All in all it was a good experience.
