The food here was just to die for, I ate here lunch and dinner once I found it, and every dish was spot on. The best food I have had in Turkey, after a month of travel.

After 4 weeks of traveling around Turkey, and becoming bored by the sameness of the food, Rimi has restored my faith in Turkish cuisine and red wine

Rumi is directly across from the small bazaar in Sultanahmet; it is the best appointed restaurant in the area.

If fact, the fare is standard Turkish cooking - nothing wrong... More
