Couldn't fault anything about this place, excellent service, and authentic Turkish cuisine at a reasonable price. We went to the number 2 restaurant in Istanbul the next day and both agreed Buhara was far better! Ended up eating here the following day!

stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
