Kanaat Lokantasi, Istanbul: 8 reviews and 8 photos

Something of an institution in Istanbul, which, because of its location, is tucked away off the tourist run.
Situated on the Asian side in Uskadar, tinted black glass windows, with a 'deli' type entrance for fantastic take-away breads, olives etc, do not fully indicate what's beyond. Nothing fancy, it has to be said - two separate, modern, clean rooms, discretely lit (that black tint!), standard comfortable tables and chairs etc (no attempt at Ottoman style decor) - but the food is something else. A small hatch in the corner with, typical Turkish style, the food laid out for you to be tempted. And what temptations! Everything and more that you would want from the best of Turkish cuisine. The only danger here is that you order too much (we usually did - could never learn!). And as it tended to be full of Turks - families, office workers etc - all tucking in, we felt we had certainly chosen well.

Favorite Dish: Everything!

Address: Tembel Haci Mehmet Mh., Selman-i Pak Cd 25, Uskudar,
Directions: In Uskadar, about 5 minutes walk from the ferries. To the left hand side of the square, heading towards Selmani Pak Cad (may even be on this road itself). Its behind the supermarket on the sqaure itse
