My family and I dined here during our trip to Istanbul and we really did no enjoy the food, this fish was really bad the chicken was not so good either, and the outdoor seating area smelt really bad! There are better restaurants nearby which provide better quality food.

Good food. Staff very friendly. Watched Brazil versus Chile game in World Cup which was very exciting. Ate there twice out of three days in Istanbul so must have liked it!!

We came here in tripadvisor recommendations. The wait staff were good. My wife was given a shawl to keep warm because it was a cool windy night. We had three dishes. Two were good: the eggplant salad, and ottoman meatball. The chef special however was a bit too cheesy.

We got lured into this place by the clever doorsman, who promised us outstanding food.

He was right; the food was good - especially the shrimp casserole, which my girlfriend chose.

The street in qhich it is located is, however, quite annoying at times (we ate in this street twice). The restaurant doorsmen are very persistant and you are asked by the neighbouring restaurant to promise to come there the next day when you are making your escape down the street afterwards!

That being said if ypu aee staying in Sultanahmet you will probably end up in thia street and semazen is not a poor choice.
