Very nice place to taste traditional Turkish cuisine and some local wines served by friendly people at decent prices in the heart of the very historical center of Istanbul. Try it if you are around.
The worst costumer welcoming experience ever. The guy who supposed to welcome costumer stand front of the door and blocked the way and said that the restaurant is full and go away. I was just shocked and couldn't say anything. Although the outside was completely empty.
Wonderful for people with gluten - or lactose intolerance, as well as vegans. One of the few places we found that serves a vegan version of the famous, traditional clay pot dish. Our waiter was completely knowledgeable about gluten, as his wife cannot eat gluten. He made sure we got a wonderful, authentic meal, despite our allergies. This is not a tourist trap at all. Wonderfully friendly staff, great atmosphere, extensive menu of traditional Turkish meals with lots of vegetarian options to a reasonable price.
