We had dinner twice in Hamdi restaurant at Eminönü during our stay early March 2017. Best kebab I ever had in my life. the view on Suleymaniye mosque and Galata bridge is amazing. very happy with the service and excellent food ( mezze, salads, kebab, lahmajun pizza, etc.). Would be back surely.

We were living in the sultanahmet area and by day 3 we had figured out this was rip off central!! We met a lovely Uber guy called Bakir and he said if we want good food and good portion sizes we should go to Emininou which is where the Egyptian/Spice bazaar is. We want to Hamdi restaurant as we were... More

Arrived late afternoon, and feared I should have made an attempt at a reservation, but luckily I got easily a table and went in to have a lovely, solid meal, with nothing at all to complain about. choice was excellent, fresh and well presented, both of us really enjoyed it.

Restaurant is on the topfloor and you get an amazing view on istanbul. Especially at night time is is worth the visit. The food is very good with some greetings from the kitchen. Personell is friendly, but the pricing for istanbul is above average. The place is mid-.size, so you should'd better visit between the main dining times.

The prices are as u expect at a resturant based in a hotel. But the staff was great. Friendly and kind. Both morning staff and evening staff. If you want to... More

We had a really great meal at this restaurant. I was a bit afraid after reading some comments regarding the staff but we had a great experience. Sure, they're not the friendliest waiters but they were very respectful, professional and efficient. The food was excellent and came in great quantity. We loved it and would definitely go back !

Enjoyed excellent lunch before visiting the Spice market. Windows allow views of the busy harbor and commerce of the city.

I did enjoy this place without knowing quite why. Reasonable selection of kebabs but nothing very special. Reasonable food but nothing very special. Good enough service ...but you get the picture.

This is the typical Turkish restaurant to go. Their huge assortment of kebabs will make you turn the menu pages several times until you figure out that you have to come again another time. If you are there at dusk the lights of Galata Bridge below will marvel you.

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighbourhood Profile
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 the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
