Smoking in restaurants in Istanbul?

Jump to last reply

I was just reading an article about Istanbul in a National Grographic Traveler issue from 2010 and it says that they had recently banned smoking in coffeehouses and restaurants, and that proprietors were protesting loudly. Just wondering if the smoking ban had survived the protests. And is this just in Istanbul, or also in other areas of Turkey?

For the record, if I never encounter another smoker, it will be too soon. But this is just idle curiousity.
