“Just for Dessert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Taken here by Turkish business colleague - it is on Asian side in Üsküdar. We actually ate in another restaurant and just can here for dessert! It was heaven. Lots of choice of typical Turkish desserts at very reasonable prices.

Very good location in Üsküdar,close to the public bus station and port on short walk,great service,very extensive food in the kitchen where you can see and make yr choice yrself,tasty dishes...You will love the ambiance but pls do not go during the rush hour&midday as it is very crowded.From A to Z it is a very good place,but slightly overpriced.

“Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

Greatest sweets in istanbul. Friendly staff. Not a tourist restaurant. More local people eat here. Although it is a bit far from the european side, it is worth it to take the ferry here

“Must be a food heritage site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013 via mobile

Delicious food in a friendly atmosphere. Their icecream is the perfect finish to a wholesome meal - don't forget to ask for mastik flavor that is usually not mentioned among flavors they serve!

“The most authentic and unpretentious Ottoman cuisine in Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

A hidden gem in the heart of Uskudar, Kanaat Restaurant offers Ottoman cuisine in its most authentic and unpretentious nature. Uskudar is a ferry ride across the Bosphorus. I personally think Uskudar is the place in Istanbul left to embody mystery, intrigue and romance which left most of the city's other districts. If you can have a gaze at the magnificent Maiden's Tower at night and end your day with a sumptuous Ottoman meal at Kanaat, it would definitely be something to remember and keep close to your heart of Istanbul.
