The ambiance was grim. I had noodle soup with chicken. Since I couldn't find chicken apart from 3 microscopic pieces,I told the waiter. With good intension he took the soup to the kitchen,and brought it back with few small pieces. Dragon sushi was so so...More

Suppose that you were very ambitious eating Sushi but you were in Beyoglu. There is no good option around at the main street.Then you'll find one in back alley. Prices are reasonable tastes are good. They don't have assorted options but have basic meals. Authentic...More

I did enjoy the environment. I ate only sushi. It was not bad, but the tuna inside the sushi was not fresh and the "yaki nori" was like "plastic". Also they didn't have Japanese beer Asahi or Kirin Ichiban it's a shame because they are...More

This place is like home to me, since I come here every weekend for Japanese classes. I don't know about the food (I've never actually eaten here) But their Japanese classes are great!

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
