This restaurant was one of the best ottoman cuisine in istanbul , but unfortunately each time it is becoming worst including tribe soup, dolma, meat , vegetables and salads and deserts. This time we as a family decide that we should not visit again.

One of the traditional restaurants serving authentic Turkish cuisine for decades. I do not eat elsewhere whenever I am in Uskudar. There is not a single dish I have not enjoyed in Kanaat.

Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on
the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s
most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek
colony, later a haven for people from across the
Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to
Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons.
Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by
its myriad treasures than by its many thousand
