Critic's review

Paddi Clay

Food
Go for the cheap but generous Turkish breakfast comprising menemen (a traditional dish of peppery tomatoes, green pepper, scrambled egg and melted cheese), a platter of olives, sliced tomatoes, cucumber, feta, gözleme (a freshly made cheese-filled flatbread), as well as a plump Turkish bread roll with jam, butter and honey. Almost endless glasses of Turkish tea complete this feast.

For a lunch meal or take-away, try tantuni, which is made with sumac-spiced strips of beef, onion and parsley and wrapped either in lavash wraps or served on Turkish bread. Else go for one of the beef, chicken or vegetarian burgers with chunky chips.

Drinks
No alcohol is served here, but a vacuum jug of Turkish tea served with honey is a great accompaniment and there are several other types of tea, milkshakes, cooldrinks and coffees from which to choose.

Service
Charming and helpful.

Ambience
A constant flow of stylish students and office workers keep it buzzing quietly. Décor consists mainly of old photographs of Galata and its tower above the Golden Horn on one wall and a blackboard menu another. There are tables, a counter and bar stool inside, and a handful of tables outside on Grove Square.

Best for…
A Saturday breakfast meet-up with friends before hitting the nearby Neighbourgoods Market or after a night of jazz at the Orbit.
