Great service. Great cakes, baklava, pudding and other sweets. One huge piece of cake costs 49 tl just like a nice plate of different baklava so about 3 €. Turkish coffee costs 19 tl so about 1,20€. Service is fast and friendly. Worth the visit....Prices are very good for huge portions in a great area.More

Believe this store is the only one in the city open 24 hours. Whether you go at midnight or 8am, somehow there is always a line to purchase the products and a line for the cafe upstairs. The cafe is really nothing special of an...experience - quite cold and unfriendly in fact. The baklava here is incredible. We tried it for the first time in Dubai and were hooked. The sweetness, texture, and freshness is unmatched. One downside is, it's a complete cluster to buy what you want. It took us 15 minutes to even get someone's attention at 11:30PM on a weekday. Because it's so busy, it's hard for you to try any of the assortment or select exactly what you want. Good part is, if you're traveling, they will seal it for you. All that said, it's a great gift and also just for yourself to consume.More

It’s crowded, we had to wait in the line to get a table it was 20 minutes waiting, stuff don’t speak any other language, it’s hard to communicate. Didn’t like the Kunafa but the Balava take good

Super busy store. Foods are so tasty. Worth the wait for table. We waited for 15-25 mins for place to sit. Staff are friendly and good. The down side was some menu not available to order for sit in while only for take away. Staff...says they don’t have them while I saw still some on display.More

Went few times. I have tried 3 different cakes and kunefe. I expected it to be more expensive since they are quite famous, but the prices were lower than elsewhere. I remember paying kunefe 27 tl while in other places 30+ tl. Portions are big.

You’re right. Actually, in my opinion you should chose Black Tea but turkish style, but not here, but in smaller cafe’s.
