I was there and it was totally bad. Service is bad and the people so rude. The fish was nice but the bread was not. I will never go there again because really the service ad the staff was bad.

I think many of the negative reviews here may be about the place next door as they talk about items that aren't on the menu here. This place is almost fast food style and serves just few items with the best seller being the grilled...More

My wife and I visited Cansin in the Eminönü area for a fish (mackerel) roll for lunch based on occupancy levels. They were tasty and reasonably priced (8 lira). Pepsi was 4 lira. Toilets were however not clean.

We had a different experience to some of the other reviews. We really enjoyed the food - mackerel on a bread roll with salad. The view is fantastic as well. The washroom was not too clean. There was no paper towels nor was the hand...More

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
