Different tastes, different experiences, however it was too depressive when I was there, maybe because it was a Sunday evening, however it was really empty. Probably ours was the only table. So don't go there on Sundays

Original turkish anatolian food. Everything was delicious. Mandi filled with aubergine and cheese, hummus with shrimps, excellent meatballs and for starter a turtle soup with a very gentle taste. The environment very chic but prices very reasonable

Exceptional food, we went there twice, we tasted beef cheek, meatballs, organic chicken, manti (a kind of ravioli), they were all delicious, especially the meat! Great wine, too! The staff was very very polite and friendly, unlike with other restaurants in Instabul. I would recommend...it to anyone!More

Another day, another location.. a cosy place where you will never forget the day you spent with your friends. Sahrap is very close to Tunnel İstanbul and is easy to reach. Not only the ambiance, but the service is also marvellous. You can have your...delicious meal while a soft music is played without disturbing your chat with your friends. İf you like you can order a nice bottle of wine beside your dish. We visted this cosy food house😉 several times. It şs worth going there and spend your quality time with your friends or family members. Bir kez gittiğimiz ve sonra da müptelası olduğumuz kalite yemek yedipimiz ve zaman geçirdiğimiz bir yer Sahrap. Gerek ortam gerek hızlı servis ve misafir perverlik bu güzel AŞEVİne gönülden bağlanmamıza neden oldu. Teşekkürler..More

We went to this restaurant upon recommendation. We had heard a lot about this place as the owner is a famous Turkish food writer and when our friends talked very highly about the place, we decided to give it a try. We went there on...a Tuesday night for dinner. We made a reservation beforehand and it was a good idea as the place was full by the time we were leaving. The ambiance and the menu seem to be both quite confused: it's not exactly Anatolian, not Turkish, not international, it's a mix of it all and it's not really a successful mix. The service though seems to be professional We started with offal soup. It's hard to find a good place which prepares this special dish decently. Here, the offal soup was not bad but not exactly as it should have been. Then we continued with a meze prepared with pumpkin, it was awful. Then we had liver which was the best meal we had at this restaurant. Mantı (Turkish ravioli) was one worst we ever tried and last but not least our main course "uykuluk" again a very special offal meal of Turkish cuisine was not tasty at all. It's always hard to bring a new touch to a traditional cuisine and there are very few restaurants in Turkey who can manage that. Unfortunately, though owned and managed by one of the most famous food writer of the country, this place is not among them. I don't think I would come here again.More

Looking for a place for dinner, happened across this place, and what a find. Just a short distance from the southern end of Istikal St with outdoor seating we were welcomed without having a reservation. A restaurant specializing in Anatolian dishes, the menu is complete...and caters to all, including vegan and vegetarians. Hot and cold starters, mezze and main entrees, a nice beverage and wine list as well as desserts. Started with the obligatory Raki and chose starters of muhamarah and aubergine/eggplant with sun dried tomato and walnuts. I wasn't very hungry, but my partner was and ordered a falafel and lamb sweetbreads for our mains. A wonderful dish, it was well seasoned lamb sweetbread with a red cabbage and marinated white onion sides. An truly amazing dish which was accompanied by a very fine glass of “Ox Eye”, Öküzgözü wine. Service was spot on, professional and friendly, and comfortable speaking English. All in all a very memorable meal. We will be back.More

It’s on a side street, so sadly you might miss it if you’re just walking by. Too bad. Varied menu. Delicious food. Generous servings. Friendly staff. What’s not to like? Try the greens salad. And lamb. And White wine from Crete.

Nice place, nice service. Food was really good. Only surprise was the 10 percent service charge at the end on the bill but overall price stayed very good for the excellent quality of food.
