“Atmospheric restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

it's a hidden restaurant inside an old hani and underground, but when you go downstairs you discover a brick walled with arches restaurant. It has traditional turkish cuisine well cooked and delicious! Also it has show with oriental dance and traditonal dances from all the regions of Turkey. It isn't expensive but neither cheap, it's in the middle. The only disadvantage is the music after the show, because they play pop and i would prefer to listen in this place traditonal turkish music.

“Avoid the food very poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012

When touted in by a tout, one should avoid. Clearly I didn't listen to my own advice and paid the price and quite an expensive one at that. Once inside the other foreign glum tourists who had been lured in could not escape either. The food is 5 times what you would pay on the street stalls but 6 times less tasty. Had a very plain lamb shish with undercooked hot chips, 26 TL, get it on the street stalls for way cheaper. Service brusque, unsmiling, uncaring. One of those 'visit once' restaurants. Plus the usual hidden bread charge at 4 TL a person, one loaf at the supermarket costs 1TL. Plus a bit suspect that they gave you other patrons' bread. Didn't see the show. The food is a definite no no, decide for yourself about the show and meal combined.
