This place was hard to find, even given the directions on the website. Once inside though, you find a pleasant atmosphere, and for lunch during the week, it appears to be a popular place to come and talk business.
I was by myself and wanting to get some work done, and this place was quiet enough to do just that, and I never felt rushed. I ordered the stuffed aubergines and the silor along with cornbread and çay and was satisfied with everything I ordered. I would say that the plates are kind of small, so if I hadn't gone with the intention of ordering several things, I may have been disappointed. I particularly enjoyed the white sauce that the silor came in. All dishes including the çay were different than food that you find elsewhere in Istanbul, which is possibly the Georgian influence on Black Sea cuisine, but also there was much attention to detail in the flavors. I was disappointed that they did not offer the hamsı when I was there because they were out of season (I did find some in Nevizade though that were delicious).
I would definitely recommend this spot as a quiet place to eat alone or with others, as you can definitely have a conversation in this atmosphere. I would order several things to share.
