I was deceived by special location and big building from the outside. Prices are too high for what they are serving , they are giving you bread piece by piece only when you finish. First and last time.

Dear guest, Thank you for your kind advices. We would like to kindly explain that the money we charged you before (4.5TL)is just for the service and tip for every staff we have. It is not for water. But still we will reconsider the advices...More

Great location. Make sure you ask for a window seat which will most likely overlook the Bosphorus. Really wonderful location. Kebabs are on the menu, so don't go unless you want kebabs.

Great restaurant with a great location. Delicious food but high prices. The staff were racist (with Arabs) and unfriendly. The food took too long to be ready.

Dear guest, Thank you for your kind comment and advice. However it is almost impossible that our staff would have bad attitudes against to our Arab guests.Because our company owner is from Şanlıurfa which means he is of Arab origin too. Kind regards, Hamdi Restaurants
