50 lira for a small plate of cheese and olives, tea and water? I was stunned when I received the bill. I mean you can get a king's feast for 50 lira anywhere else in the city. And the waiters are absolutely horrible, making snide comments about everyone, acting like they are doing you a favor by doing anything for... More

Self-service breakfast buffet: clean place, fast staff, fresh local dishes, low prices. Staff do not speak English (well) and there are no (visible) cafeteria rules.

We visited the Namli store at Karakoy area. I have to admit that communication with the waiters is a bit difficult but they are so willing to help so at the end you can find your ways. So, someone has to order as a self service the plates that wants to eat, the platters and the combinations. You need to... More

OK they are serving a perfect kind of breakfast which everybody at least once in his life should try. But I'm not sure at all, if it deserves to line up there and wait half an our to get it. Do not forget that if you manage to sit, you will have the pressure to finish it as soon as... More

If I had to choose 10 best meals around the world that I've had, this would be one! The mezze platter was finger licking good! Kofta was good too. This place is one of the few places that my vegetarian husband enjoyed as much as I did (outside of India)

I should have understand that they do not know anything about omelette when the waiter asked me if i want my egg yolk whisked or not !!!! I was served sth look like... More

I've been there with two Turkish friends who recommended it. Very friendly staff, not too many tourists and good quality. From there we went by tram to Grand Bazar.

it's a market style breakfast, where you pick your selection and they bring it with your choice of tea and coffee. I love how alive and bustling the place is. The only downside is that I struggled to put in an order because they mostly speak turkish and my turkish was suffering (google-translate) lol. but it's a must go, and... More

Staying in Karakoy

Neighbourhood Profile
Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most historically significant area, it’s currently one of the most happening parts of town as well. Here street vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks of the Horn where the views of major attractions across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions, such as the iconic 14th century Galata Tower and the Museum of Modern Art. A major hub for local and international waterborne traffic, Istanbul’s commercial and maritime heritage remains as relevant and evident as ever in Karakoy. Commuter ferries mingle with luxury cruise liners at its busy port, ensuring a continuously cosmopolitan flow of people..
