The main dishes are from the Hatay region in South Turkey, the restaurant location in Aksaray is central. The menu is huge withe lots of option, some dishes need 4 hours in advance order

This place is really tasty and reasonably priced. You must get the salted chicken - they encapsulate a whole chicken with a shell of salt and bake it for 2hrs. They then set the salt on fire In front of you and crack it open - most delicious and moist chicken you'll ever have!

Staying in Fener & Balat

Neighbourhood Profile
Fener & Balat
This sleepy and rather socially conservative area of Istanbul hosts a small but thriving Jewish community, the patriarchate of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and some of the most beautiful churches and Christian art in the world. Much of what’s most interesting to witness in Fener and Balat sits between the surviving ancient city walls of Constantinople and the serene shores of the Golden Horn. Despite the many splendid sights, historic attractions, stunning vistas, and warm Turkish welcome, the area remains largely unperturbed by the tourist trade that characterizes the atmosphere in nearby Sultanahmet and around the Grand Bazaar. Travelers that like to explore off the beaten track will reap big rewards for making the effort to visit this low-key part of town.
