Simply excellent! Just off Istiklal but miles away from the tourist crowd: excellent service, wonderful ambiance, literally 2 steps away from our hotel. The manti was sublime, the meat and octopus dishes excellent with innovative touches and the kathaif with dondurma dessert to a par...More

Everything tasted the same. Sour. Same ingredients used. Sour cherries featured in 3 dishes. Definitely not fine dine . No stand out dishes. Turkish red wines are rough too. Only had a wannabe crowd who prob are not food lovers.

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

In Turkey, credit card payments, unfortunately, has become a lifestyle. If you can find an establishment that does not accept any credit card, that would be a surprise for me. ;) Enjoy...
