Traditional turkish restaurant with excellent quality, food tasted great, staff very friendly. Don't ask for the menu, just ask the waiter to recommend! Chances are you'll eat better than you would imagine! Been there several times, would go there again!

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
