Actually breaking fast in Kanaat Restaurant is a ritual for Asian side and Üsküdar. This restaurant has been here from old times. It is a successful venue offering the successful tastes of Turkish and Ottoman cuisine. We dropped by here as a family. There was no fix menu in here. You can order any food after you saw them in...

We have lamb, kofte, aubergine and very good cakes. Near Uskudar ferry, so it is easy to reach. We can highly recommend this authentic restaurant, when you plan the... More

We tried and nibbled on almost everything they had to offer...breads, lambs, eggplants..cheeses ...each and every one fresh as it can be ! Being overwhelmed with hospitality and choices I did not even realise we did not topped... More

Kanaat Lokantasi is amazing restaurant. The foods are great and very tasty. I always enjoy the food they serve. Especially I recommend Yaprak Dolma grape leaves stuffed with olive oil. We will try again.

Really good place to get a first impression on superb Turkish cuisine! Better bring an advisor along, as on the ground floor there's a variety of meals for all courses exposed. Try pilav and lamb shank. Mouthwatering! Bonne appetite!

Staying in Uskudar

Neighbourhood Profile
Uskudar
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 residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.
