Fodor's Review

Across from the Muradiye Tombs, this kitchen house built by Sultan Murat II in the 15th century to help feed the poor now serves Ottoman and Turkish cuisine in wonderfully atmospheric surroundings. Hünkar beğendi (tender lamb on a bed of grilled-eggplant puree) literally means "the Sultan liked it," and it's hard not to. The place is also known for its köfte (meatballs), made with lamb, beef, chicken, and pistachios, and for its Ottoman desserts. The terrace is pleasant, but dine indoors and you'll feel like you're eating in the sultan's quarters. No alcohol is served.
