Great service. Great food. Great atmosphere. And to top it all off...great prices.

When we arrived at Istanbul we were quickly greeted and seated with a smile. Despite the huge numbers they pack into a small space they don't leave you waiting. All night long you just had to look up and one of the many wait staff would be there to help you. The food arrived so fast I thought they must have mixed up the orders. But no it was ours and it was delicious.

I don't know about you, but when I go out I want to eat food I wouldn't make at home. Istanbul definitely ticked that box for me. I had the beef moussaka, it was full of flavour and more than I could fit in my usually spacious stomach! I'm not sure what they put on the side salad but it had me running my finger over the plate to get the last bit.

As I said, the place was packed and it was loud. But you could still hear the people around you and everyone seemed to be having a great time.

Thanks Istanbul, I'll be back.
