You order a soup which is priced for 7 bucks then you see the cost 12 because of the added bread and tea cost. (Bread and tea are free of charge in most of Turkish restaurants) Ok if you gonna charge it, then mention it on the menu. Very rude waiters.

Actually I wanted to say that nothing was special. Very ordinary and when I was there a limited selection. I did not found an unforgettable taste and was over priced. One can found more tasty and budget things in the same market area. Only their historic place was good. There will be not an next time from myside.

Discovered by accident and had the most delicious food! As not many of the staff spoke English one of them was very helpful on advice and suggestions and even gave us some extra dishes and samples to try. Was one of the best meals we had in Istanbul!
