Home Made is a great restaurant with a very varied menu. The local dishes are lovely and they also do a great spaghetti and other pasta dishes. The service is also excellent and the staff are really friendly and pleasant. The prices are reasonable too- mid range for tourist area.

Lovely restaurant, very relaxing with pleasant staff. I would recommend the Testi Kebab, you can have either lamb or chicken, I had the lamb. It contains onions, peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic and spices and is served with rice and bread. It’s cooked in a clay pot and brought to your table in the clay pot which is then heated in...

We were attracted by the fresh bread making display and the general ambiance which was nice. It was a special meal so we were recommended a special fish dish that did not seem to be visible on the menu. That dish cost more than everything else that we ate that night combined, ouch! Next time I would ask how much... More

I enjoyed a few very tasty wholesome meals here. The staff were friendly and interested to engage in conversation with patrons. Location is excellent, on the tramline. Decor is welcoming.

We were walking back after a shopping experience in the spice market and saw the special on display, so thought we would give it a try. The special was a mixed meze for 2 persons and a chicken casserole plus dessert. The Meze was excellent, the chicken was good and well cooked, we are always cautious about chicken abroad, but...

Friendly Staff, Delicious Food, Nice Atmosphere. Though the restaurant looks more stylish than others around but it is surprisingly cheaper.

We had delightful turkish dinner accompanied by great turkish Chardonnay wine. We had typical turkish dinner with meat served from clay pot and delicious turkish starter mix. The only thing that spoiled this lovely experience was high (certainly by european standards) bill at the end of the evening. I do not mind receiving high bill for gourmet outstanding memorable meal.... More

Part 1. As I walked by, the place looked nice enough, boasted about their TripAdvisor“4 out of 5 stars” rating. I looked inside and saw that they had a “full bar”. Upon entering and ordering a drink, I found out that the “full bar” was not full enough (They did not carry the spirit of my choice). While deciding on... More

We have been there late on a thursday evening. Because of the lack of open places we went there. Disappointing experience. Mese was not tasty at all. Staff was alright. Would not recommend.

We enjoyed a great meal at this restaurant earlier this week. (November 2012.) We had walked by and noticed the Trip Advisor certificate, which was enough for us to take a chance. The wait staff were all friendly, and we enjoyed talking with them. (The restaurant wasn't crowded, because we were having an early dinner after skipping lunch.) The most... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
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.
