Having planned to spend a few hours in Kadikoy, this quickly made it to the list of places to try given all the reviews. Easy to find. We thought we explained what we wanted by pointing at items and saying a bit on 1-plate, but what we got was 8 separate dishes which didn't fit on our table, we even asked to cancel one as they had doubled up. The meze plates aren't big. Their standout dishes were the meatballs with crab apples that had a hint of cinnamon, their version of dolmades and their kibbe ( koftas ) . We would give the artichoke with lamb cubes and their lamb stew a wide miss. We were genuinely stunned to see that our bill came to 97 Turkish Lira for 7 meze plates. This was Kadikoy not Bebek. Perhaps we have been spoiled by our experiences of amazing Lokantasas in and around Taksim Square and Galata where one gets generous portions but for the quarter of the price. Would not rush back as it wasn't the highlight meal in Istanbul for us. Wouldn't quite say it was Average, would have rated this as a Good rather than Very Good
