Great service and food, amazing attention to detail. Turkish coffee is a great starter, we had for lunch the basin kebab, and the whole experience and taste was spectacular. Beware though, if you order a spicy dish, it will be quite spicy - as expected.

We popped in to avoid a rain shower... Lovely friendly people, good traditional fresh foods. We don’t eat deserts but we tried the local delicacy, it really was quite special. Thank you to the owners for the recommendation. The hot clay dish looked amazing, certainly...More

Wow the hot clay kebab was fantastic, the part is, i love spicy food and they can make it spicy. The hospitality was great, owner and waiter always checking on us if we needed something, food arrival was not long, was served hot.

Stopped to eat after a long day of exploring, had the hot pot and the cheese pide to share with my mom. Really tasty food and great service, will definitely be back.

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
