Their food was nothing more than ordinary, their deserts very disappointing, their service very poor, and waiters extremely rude! And yet the bill was quite expensive compared to some nice restaurants in Istanbul. Also, let me warn you, they don't accept credit or debit card,...More

Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on
the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s
most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek
