I did order a plate of grilled meatballs and bean salad. It was a delicious meal and unexpansive. This place is so close to all sightseeing attractions. It was recommended by one of the locals. Highly recommended.

The service was good. Very simple menu. The salad and dessert were excellent. The kofte was good, but not great. I was expecting it to be much better since that's what they are known for. I'd go back again.

Tasteless food - small portions - very overpriced - service useless - spent 15 minutes being ignored by the waiter.

Nice kitchen atmosphere! You get your food quickly. Perfect if you are hungry. Child friendly. Friendly staff. We ordered grilled beef kebap, didn't meet our expectations, the meat was a bit rubbery and the taste was not a sensation.

So, I decided to not rely on Trip Advisor's advice in restaurants around Istanbul. Worked it out myself the classic way: look for a packed restaurant with a queue! This restaurant was the only one with people desperately waiting under the warm son just to...More

If you visit the Sultanahmet district, you won't miss this place. Always full of people and waiting line. The reason I gave it three stars is I think the place is overrated. The food is good but not that good to wait such long time.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
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
