Biggest disappointment. Service was awful, they did not care. Food came immediately which means it was pre-cooked and taste was as lacklustre as their attitude. Certainly not authentic Indian food.

really, i was never disappointed here. Came approx six times now. Super friendly waiters, not a posh place, but all good. Not really a place where the Turks go, it is a touristy place. But meals are delicious!

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
