Breakfast for three but there was enough for 4-5! Usual range of cold and hot dishes and possibly a little more authentically Turkish than other venues.

I had a business meeting there, and i got surprised by the amount and diversity of the foods came along in one dish. It is amazing and definitely worth the little money you pay.

Traditional breakfast. Super fast service. We order the first option on the menu. It was really good and had a lot small plates to taste from. I probably drank like 3 cups of tea while eating.Good Value.

It serves an excellent traditional Turkish breakfast. My wife and I ordered breakfast that's supposed to be for one person and we couldn't finish it. And their shakshuka with cheese is a must to try.

It's the best breakfast you can find in Istanbul. The price is too cheap for such quality. The location is 10 minutes walk from Taksim square or 5 minutes from Istiklal caddesi.

Really an amazing place. For my brother, father, and I the supreme breakfast platter with added menemen was fitting. The bread was soft and tasty and complemented the jams, cream, and eggs very well. The tea was also very good and they were always quick...More

Really enjoyed my breakfast here. It specialises in food from the Van region of the country, so you'll find a few things where which might be new to you from other places. Go with a big appetite.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening

You could take one menu for 2 if you are reasonable :). It would cost ~30-40TL ( ~10€), waiter may complain a bit. If you take to menu which you can't finish (from my point of view it will cost ~60TL (~20€)
