The lower end of this street has been home to a few typical Turkish taverns for a long time. Among the well known taverns are Refik, Yakup and Asmal覺 Cavit. Asmal覺 Cavit offers one of the best price for value offers, whilst keeping true to friendly service and long-lasting traditions. The custom is to start off the night with rak覺, melon and cheese; and to move on slowly to cold and hot appetizers -the mezes.

  • Istanbul

One of the hottest clubs in Turkey, Reina is actually a vast playground filled with bars, restaurants and dance floors that can welcome up to 2500 people. Supposedly, the name 'Reina' was inspired by a 'very cute' 3-year-old girl (wCities). In the past few years, Reina has been becoming more and more "less local." This has to do with its vast popularity and scenery, which have made it very famous worldwide and thus very crowded. It is located at the foot of the European side with a magnificent view of the Bosphorus Bridge. It is open every season, yet moves out to its vast open space in the summers. The place gets renovated right down to its toilets almost every season and opens both its winter and summer seasons with huge parties. The restaurants inside this complex run the gamut from Italian to Sushi to more traditional local fare. Many well-known restaurants including Kosebasi Kebab, Samdan Restaurat and Dragon Chinese Restaurant move into Reina for the summer season. Nevertheless, you may not be able to find the same restaurant here season after season: Who pays the piper calls the tune...
