Fodor's Review

This popular dual-format venue is a bustling daytime spot offering a changing menu of reasonably priced vegetable and meat dishes from the Turkish kitchen and a classy meyhane at night, serving an excellent variety of mezes, including octopus salad and salted, dried mackerel. The mainly grilled fish and meat entrées are equally well-prepared. The gorgeous two-level dining room features a wrought-iron spiral staircase, blue and turquoise tiles, old-fashioned lamps, and

long mirrors. Service is professional but waiters can be brusque, particularly during the midday peak, when you may end up sharing a white-tablecloth-clad table with local businesspeople on their lunch break.
