Excellent cafe for a quick snack or lunch. Very friendly owner, nice atmosphere and delicious food. Highly recommend, if you are not looking for all out dinner experience.

“Great Food, Fluent English!”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

I highly recommend this restaurant for lunch (I don't think its open for dinner) for a number of reasons: Firstly on checking out all the trays of delicious food and asking what was vegetarian in charade style, we were thrilled to have a native English speaker called to assist. What a treat that was in itself after 10 days of pointing (yes I know we should have put in more effort....). He had returned to his country of birth to help his Turkish family run their restaurant. An additional treat: No-one trying to inveigle you into a) coming in to the restaurant and b) no-one trying to get you to order what you really don't want (his Western European influence I suspect). But all of this would have been pointless if the food had not been delicious and indeed it was. He (sorry can't remember name) described the ingredients and offered to make up dishes for each of us of at least 5 different choices for a mere 10 TL each which is what we did. We were incredibly sorry that we only discovered this place the day before we left but happily we return in March and will make a point of patronising it frequently. Hard to describe exactly where it is but it is down one of the roads running parallel to the Bosphorous walking in the direction of the New Mosque and using the Mustapha Turkish Delight Store right near the to the Sirkeci tramstop as a starting point.
