Popped in for a quick lunch. Had no idea which place to go into but the delicious window display was enticing enough. Food was reasonably priced and very tasty.

Excellent location in the grounds of the famous Topkapı Palace. Splendid view of the intersection of the Bosphorus and the Marmara Sea. Best and delicious samples of the Turkish-Ottoman kitchen. Friendly, highly professional and multi-lingual service staff. I strongly recommend the place.
