We were a group of 8 and reached this restaurant (our plan B) at 9:30pm just before it was closing. The owner went out of his way to recommend dishes and we were glad he did. All the dishes were delicious, even the vegetarian ones! The prices were very reasonable too. The owner even served us desert on the house! Would definitely recommend the place.

The food was absolutely sublime, the real typical Ottoman cuisine. The staff is great as well: they explain you everything regarding the food and wine, they are not pushy and allow you to really enjoy your meal. This was the best restaurant we visited in Istanbul, and we went to quite a few!
It is also not expensive (our meal included wine and dessert and it only cost around 16€).

My family and I attended this restaurant for lunch after walking around in the area. (which is great if you want to experience Istanbul - shopping, history, architecture) From the moment we entered the restaurant, the owners and servers were extremely polite, explaining and recommending dishes, greeting us, and even joking with us. I highly recommend the yogurt with garlic and mint, which is very refreshing and tasty and goes great with the complimentary bread. We were also served a complimentary desert. Ambiance and decor was also very nice. All in all, we really enjoyed this meal and it came at a very reasonable cost. Must go to this restaurant!!
