I was attracted by the old lady sitting in the front of the restaurant making the guzleme ... But once inside, I was surprised by the high prices and the unfriendly waiters... The service was slow and bad. But the food was ok, because I...did make it simple with cheese spinach guzlem I get into for after all. I don't recommend.More

Food was good, mainly the Gozleme but service sucks and waiters are so unfriendly. They don’t speak English so difficult to communicate

Just a poor experience for food quality, service and price. You have to pay a 10% service fee which is not disclosed. Prices are very overpriced compared to other restaurants. Do yourself a favor and try another restaurant.

Good location, fast service and nice food. We tried some salads and the crepes with meat and spinacs. The staff was friendly, portions had good size and we sat on the first floor. We recommend the place if you are around Beyoglu. Best value for...money for a quick biteMore

We ended up at Otantik attracted by the non-smoking and attractive interior. However the food was ordinary and the service abysmal. It took 40 minutes for our simple Turkish pancake meals to arrive and then only after asking the waiter to check. My orange juice...glass was distinctly sticky- understandable I guess, but not professional. And then they had the temerity to add a 10% ‘service charge’! Should have checked the reviews beforehand to avoid this tourist trap!More

I visited once and I liked the food. Then I visited again just for some tea and the staff insulted us by not serving! Apparently they were annoyed as we didn’t order big. Disgusting and rude.

We ordered some specialities. The staff is not so English speaking friendly, but we managed to comunicate and to get what we ordered.

We saw the place from the outside and were very tired from walking. We had Lam bajeen and one cheese from the lady who was doing it live. It looked so tempting, the taste was ok. It’s definitely a touristIc place And again as usual,...they don’t speak English and not friendly.More

I bought my family to turkey in the hope we can experience a different culture. Walking around Taksim we needed some food, walking past this restaurant I had hoped I can give my family a good meal on their first day in Turkey. It looked...good on the outside and the menu looked appealing. How wrong was I. The level of service we got was absolutely atrocious. I suspect looking at the other clientelle who attended this restaurant and the members of my family dressing in their traditional indian clothes, I felt this to be a huge factor in the quality of service we got during our meal at this restaurant. We can see how nice the waiters were to theur other customers but I guess money doesnt always talk to these types of restaurants. And lets face it, its not like they had any michelin stars to their name either. The food was abysmal. Rice came cold and the quality of food was worse than economy food on a budget airline (and to be honest, given the prices, the airline food would have saved us a significant amount of money anyway). My parents were actually genuinely upset at the quality of food and service and when they raised they had an issue with the food (my mother barely had a quarter of her rice) the waiter was nonchalant about it. Pretty much exaclt what I expected given the attitudes we recieved from the staff the second we walked through the door. Avoid this restaurant. They dont deserve your hard earnt money.More

It is our third day stay in Istanbul, we tried different restaurants in different places in Istanbul. I can say for sure, the best staff, the best service and the delicious food we had in this place. Fresh bread (Lavash) is baked fresh... We appreciate...the head of the restaurant for his discipline and the well behavior of the staff. You should try!More
