Delicious Armenian style meze to begin with a delicious plate of mixed smoked fish provided a tasty start to this very enjoyable evening. A light and very well cooked lamb stew prepared with lean lamb wrapped in lettuce leaves in a clear sauce that was not all fatty served with delicious rice cooked with almonds and apricots. A corked bottle... More

There are no doubt a few dishes on the menu that are reasonable, though unfortunately we only had about two of them. The wait staff were ambivalent, if not rude, barely smiled or welcomed us. Half the items on the menu were unavailable, which we only learned once we tried to order them, and sometimes about 10 minutes after we... More

We stayed very nearby in the Cihangir district and this was definitely one of the better restaurants we tried in the area. Most of the online reviews we had read before recommend their mezze appetizer platters which were good but our group actually enjoyed the main dishes even more. I tried a chicken in soy sauce dish that was very... More

We were lucky to stumble across this little gem one evening and had a highly enjoyable meal. The hostess was so helpful and recommended great dishes for us to try. All plates were cleared! During the meal we enjoyed live music and a lovely atmosphere. Highly recommend it!

We went on a Saturday evening as a group of 19 people. Of course we accepted from the beginning a very tight seating (mezzanine). Just as our group there were some other crowded tables. Warm welcome. Polite staff. Special interior. Loved it. Table was prepared in advance for us with some of the appetizers. Expected more Armenian appetizers/dishes/dessert. May be... More

We rented an apartment a few blocks away for a week and ate here one of the evenings. The restaurant and patio are nice. We found the food good, but somewhat expensive for what we had. In addition, the waiters seemed indifferent to our presence, which was a surprise based on some of the other reviews.

The meze starters are great, service is wonderful, people are very friendly. There is very nice live music and people can dance to the tune. Make sure to have reservation before going.

We found this cozy restaurant because our son's friend had just been to Istanbul and he recommended it. It is known for great Armenian food. We went the first night in Istanbul on a rainy night. We meet the owner, Mari, as we entered. She guided us thru the menu and all of the things we should try - mezes,... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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 nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
