If you have got a sweet tooth, this would be unforgetable retreat for your taste buds. You have to wait for the 15-20mins but its worth waiting and a must visiting place when you are at Taksim square.

Welcomed by colourful candies as you walk through to sit, after being offered a taste of Turkish delight. Pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff. We had nice Turkish tea and slightly too sweet for our tastes strawberry and milk pudding.

You’re right. Actually, in my opinion you should chose Black Tea but turkish style, but not here, but in smaller cafe’s.
