Hala is a very nice restaurant, great food and friendly staff. Although there's a woman performing 'how to make dough' at the window, this restaurant is not expensive at all.

We ordered:
- Shephred Salad
- Manti (Turkish ravioli in Garlic Yoghurt)
- Gozleme (pancake) with cheese
- a mixed plate of kofte (meat balls), aubergines, some other meat and vegetables
- cherry juice
- peach juice
and it costed 25 Million Turkish Lira.

It's quite reasonable as the food was so delicious and we were so full that night!

Favorite Dish: Manti!!! The garlic sauce was yummy~!

Address: istiklal Caddesi 211
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: It's on the same street as Pandora, opposite to Benetton.
Price: less than US$10
