There's something about being locked outside on the street, staring at a cold, impersonal black metal door in an unfamiliar neighborhood with a desperate hankerin' for some Vietnamese shrimp summer rolls, chicken satay, and spicy beef wontons. It's demoralizing. It's a crime against humanity. I...More

We had a great dinner at cochine, starting with the nice coctails. Earl Grey Martini was the best. We almost ate the whole menu and everything was really good. Spring rolls should be tried. Service was nice, waiters were really good

It has an inter sarin atmosphere although we only sat at the bar. The cocktails, especially the Earl Grey Tea Martini, are delicious, although pricey.

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
