Found after reading about the shop on different forums. Four generations of Turkish delight makers. The owner spoke little English however he was very helpful as we spoke even less Turkish. We were able to try the delight and he explained how it was made...More

Came past here on way from Blue mosque to Spice market. The Turkish Delight is good and the price is excellent. About 30lr for a kilo. We ordered the pistasho version and it was tasty - not the best we had but cannot complain at...More

The Turkish delight (lokum)we've tried everywhere else has been rubbery, chewy and tasteless compared to the soft, heavenly pillows of confectionary genius at Altan Sekerleme. The pistachio is king, but the samples of rose petal flavored and orange flavored lokum were also delightful and I...More

This place is totally worth to make the walk out for! The location on Trip Advisor is a little off, you need to keep walking past the first lokum (Turkish Delight) store to find it. Don't be fooled! Once you get there it's such a...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

It is in Eminonu, very near the Egyptian Spice Market. You can find the market at the base of the New Mosque. The shop is through the spice market to the right, Demirtaş Mh., 34134 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey
