I came with my friend and had a blast with the drizzling iskendar and eggplant kebap in the midst of the busy historic place with a view. A place for both artistic feel and ambience and best experience have delicious turkish food.

This little cafe has great traditional food and really friendly owners and waiters. We had some traditional Turkish meze and flatbread pizzas which were delicious. Completely recommend this for a chilled meal.

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
