We got a decent meal. But without English menu, we relied on the staffs recommendations. That was a mistake... The bill they presented was 2-3 times higher than what we have paid everywhere else. We are not coming back.

All the food was super delicious and it's like your mom made it. If you would like to taste real traditional Turkish cuisine must stop.

For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area
just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used
mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its
chic streets are considered the very heart of
contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of
fashion and a thriving business district meet to
create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a
residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining
