I was on a short visit to Istanbul today and after Grand Bazar shopping I have decided to grab a quick lunch before my flight. I have visited this place a year ago and had a good experience. So I have made another stop and it was great again. Same staff, same friendly attitude.
I have ordered a steak in Dijon sauce. Steak was backed as it should and as ordered-medium rear. It was served on a wooden plate with French potato and grilled vegetables.
I have paid 13€ (90 Lira) for great steak, Cola and small bottle of still water. Great price as many things in Istanbul nowadays.
Main guy in restaurant arranged a taxi for my trip to Ataturk airport, so I had to give them a good review. It is a realistic one but I have wrote this one down because of Staff attitude to their clients!

We strolled just off the main drag in Old Istanbul and discovered a plethora of restaurants- impossible to choose one. We randomly picked Beso for no reason. People were friendly- but always are in Turkey. After a drink, we checked the menu. We told the waiter we were keen for something Really different and were told Beso was owned by a Kurdish chef. “Try the borani” we were told. “It’s a rare specialty in Istanbul.” It sounded good.
It turned out to be our favourite meal after 3 weeks in Turkey. We had tried but couldn’t find anything like Borani. It’s like the old traditional hot pot except better than your Mum makes. Breathtakingly good- you need to get there.
