What a coincidence - a similar experience to 'Shame' 21st Nov 2011. We were also 'lured' into the restaurant and thought when we saw locals eating that we would receive good value. We could not relate the dishes on the menu (reasonably priced) to the platter served; the quantity was vulgar and far in excess of what we could eat. When the bill arrived it was not itemised and, in comparison with other hotels and restaurants in Istanbul, considerably more expensive and, although the quality of food was reasonable the surroundings were inferior. When presenting the bill the waiter/manager specified his tip in a forceful manner. Having no knowledge of the Turkish language we did not question, settled the bill and left.
