Very nice relaxing vibes here. The food was really tasty and served in large portions. We ordered one of the meat platters and shared it between three of us. The staff were also funny and friendly.

I had a wonderful time at this cosy cafe. The staff were insanely hospitable, in particular Imbrahim a great host. The food was very tasty, and enjoyed a very relaxing shisha with mint tea! Would definitely visit again!

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
