It's good experience to be in such restaurant as very convenient. You can chose your meal from the display ( meat , salad, bread and drinks) the staff will cook for you and they will also arrange your table. It's wonderful.

Sultanahmet

prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
