This place looks nice from the outside with all the food displayed on the front window. We ordered two dishes of kebabs, 3 small portioned plates of mezza, and a coke and ended up paying TL 95. Which is expensive even for the adjacent restaurants. There is no air conditioning inside and the place is poorly ventilated. The food was below average and the kebab was undercooked. At the end, we were under the impression that we were charged for something more expensive than what we ordered but had no proof as we picked our food from the display and had no idea what the names were. Something we will look out for in the future. Overall very bad experience.

From the stret it looks wonderful, nice, clean and once you enter they run to "help you" offering the different dishes telling you what you can have but they do not tell you the finl price, you think is one prie and at the end, they double it, arguing the dish you end up choosing was a diiferent one, obviously the most expensive. I had a veggy meal and o ask for little portions but wanted a sample of 6, they double the price. And very rude, there was no friendly discussion, no option, no apology. terrible!!!

After my walk in top kapi we sat for a quick branch for Turkish grilled meat.
Restaurant was too simple inside. I didn't like that they service you as cheap tourist but the food was very nice. At the end we spent 30 euro/ person .... Far too expensive!

As the waiter seated us at a nice table, everything seemed to be fine. Things started to get strange, as he asked us if we want to have sweets and we said "no, only diner and a cay". Anyway, without having asked for, he brought us three small pieces of backlava. Turned out, that he charged us 10 Lira for those. Also the food and the cay turned out to be very expensive. So we ended up paying double price than the nights before. Finally we went home with a strange feeling of being fooled.

We went there to have 4 meze (starters) and an Adana kebab. With Ayran and two teas we pays 80 TL which is too much. The service and the quality of the food was average but far too overprized. Choose another restaurant if you dint want to get ripped off.
