I ordered the mixed kebab and meze platter, which were both amazing. Gave free poofy bread (I don't know what it's called), baklava and apple tea. The owner Burak is super friendly and helpful. Overall amazing experience!

Thank you to Burak for his hospitality, humour and great food. I was recommended the Alinazik Kebab (Smoky Eggplant Puree with Spiced Lamb and Yoghurt) and it was fantastic. Highly recommend this great restaurant to anyone seeking some real Turkish flavours.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
