Every time we visit Istanbul we pass by Esmer. The quality is always excellent and the service is courteous. Our waiter Erkan is polite and friendly. Highly recommended!

The service here was very nice and very good especially our waiter Erkan. The food was also very good and was mixed. We had the shrimp with noodles as well as some chicken dishes and they were very well cooked and tasted amazing.
