My fiance and I were staying at the Ambassador hotel right next to this place. We decided to go here for a late night tea and hookah. Overall we were very pleased with the service and the staff. Had a nice chat with Onder, Yousef, and Haroun. Great guys and great service, will go back again.

As most reviews here are written, the place is really good. One thing to mention - they change their name! Now they are NAR steakhouse!

My third trip to Istanbul, and I always stop here for lunch! And they always remember me! So great to kick your feet up, relax with a drink, eat a fantastic meal, and people watch. Location is amazing!! Highly recommend lamb kebab, it's juicy and tender and puts the world right again. Of course, their bread isn't to be missed.... More

We have tried today this "so called" Steak and Doner restaurant. Nice welcome, we got a table outside, heating system was OK but only for 10 mn. 45 mn for having the main dish. It was not corresponding to our choice, the Beef Doner Kebab was made of very old mutton instead of beef, served almost cold, my wife is... More

This cafe/restaurant in Sultanahmet is surrounded by dozens of other nice places so you have your choice. The name is a little confusing, as it now has a banner with a Bull's head silhouette titled "Steak & Doner," Food is good, service excellent: a level that can be expected most places in Istanbul and top professional restaurant service seems to...

We found this restaurant just strolling the area, and were invited in by a charming host and the gorgeous ambiance. We decided to sit outside, and had beautiful mini-Christmas lights adorning the front of the entrance and above our heads. The host was humorous and entertaining, speaking fluent English and making great recommendations in the menu based on our wants.... More

Good food and pretty good service for a group of 20 persons. They managed to not let us waiting for the food (this is quite a problem in many restaurants in Istanbul). What a pitty that there are works on the other side of the street which somehow disturb the outdoor seating! Hope that they will be finished soon so... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
