“Number 1 baklava place in Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Well, if you are into baklava this is the place. It's just delicious even if the ordering concept is not that ideal and the place is always crowded, it's worth it.

“Karaköy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

We stopped by around 11:00 pm and stayed until they shushed us out (subtly and politely) at 11:30. Great way to end the day. Probably not a bad way to begin it either. It's reported to have the best baklava in Instanbul. Don't know if that's really the case but it was the best we tried (and we tried several).
