In the heart of Kadikoy you can have a great meal at this gem of a place which serves traditional Turkish food and nice sweets, too. There is a nice "garden" in the back which is a nice break from the crowds of the marketplace outside.

It was a disappointment, I was really surprised. Meals were ordinary and waiting staff were even worse. We were there for dinner and we will give another shut for lunch. It was one of the Typical Turkish food restaurant. I am very sorry.
