You won't find baklava like this back home. This is the place to eat your sweets in Istanbul. It's a no frills joint, unfriendly staff, usually crowded, but it's worth it. Try one of each!

It's confusing when you first enter as it says self service and to get a cashiers receipt first.. So you need to pay for what you getting first and then you go pick it up. The chocolate baklava is a must try! Also had the...More

The taste of baklava is great. I am a hard person in terms of liking a dessert but this place covers my expectations. However , it is too busy and available seats are quite rare.

If you are visiting Istanbul and you want to eat baklava you are in the right place. All kinds are really really delicious, especially Sütlü Nuriye, Şöbiyet and Fıstıklı Baklava. The only negative point is the crowd and the prices are a little bit high.

I used to visit it in every visit to Istanbul, the taste is amazing for me I think visiting them is must where you can order and spoil your self with a fresh baklava and a cup of fresh Turkish coffee.

Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy
is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at
the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most
historically significant area, it’s currently one of
the most happening parts of town as well. Here street
vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks
of the Horn where the views of major attractions
across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions,

Dear Raihan. It takes more than 1,5 up to 2 hours to go by taxi to Guluoglu Karakoy from Atatürk. You can buy Guluoglu Baklava from the shop into the International Terminal. Have nice flights
