Lokanta Maya

Lokanta Maya Review

At her highly regarded restaurant, New York–trained chef Didem Şenol offers what could be called "nouvelle Turkish" cuisine, based on seasonal, local, and primarily organic ingredients. A daily-changing menu features a range of tasty appetizers, like grilled octopus with red onions and zucchini fritters with cucumber sauce, and a handful of main course options, such as caramelized sea bass with apricots. The wine list consists of Turkish labels, both established and new. Hip yet unpretentious, with contemporary furniture, light-colored woods, and warm lighting, it's located on one of the main streets in fast-gentrifying Karaköy.
