Two of us went here on a Thursday night and we were the only diners. The restaurant was situated next door to our hotel. The service was attentive, as one would expect when you are the only diners in a big restaurant, although in most other places in the world waiters usually open your can of drink and pour it...

The food here is better than in turkey itself. Wow! very tasty and delicious. The most famous is the "eskander kebab", and they do it very well. For dessert, sure the warm konafa is the choice. Just behind deira city centrd next door to novotel

If you have time for your departure from Dubai International Airport, Mekan Istanbul is a nice and convenient place to eat. You can take Dubai Metro from the Airport Terminal 1 or 3 and costs just 6 dirhem return ticket. You need to get off Deira City Center Mall station. The restaurant is located just across of the metro station.... More

Went here since it was close to our hotel. The service and polite and attentive. The food was delicious and overall a good but not spectacular experience. Restaurant decor is nice with Turkish items throughout.

Value for money at this restaurant is so bad. The service you get, the attitude and professionalism of the waiters is so disappointing. Nobody would bother to change your empty plates. Nobody would look after you. The waiters seem not sure of what they're doing. Nobody smiles when welcoming you. You pay much for food which is in other restaurant... More

We've been in Mekan Istanbul last month. First thing i should say ; fastest service in UAE. Staff response and timing is perfect. Food quality is good as Turkish taste of kababs but the vegetables of mediteranean are perfect. Musics was nostalgic 80's Turkish pops. I suggest them change it with Ottoman classical musics which is more authentic and suitable... More
