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 meze, 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.
