One of the Sultanahmet area's best dining experiences, this hybrid cooking school–restaurant serves a set four- or five-course menu of Turkish home cooking, regional Anatolian specialities and Ottoman classics. Sampling dishes such as imam bayıldı ('the imam fainted'; eggplant, onion, tomato and peppers slow-cooked in olive oil) with a glass of local wine is a wonderful way to experience authentic Turkish cuisine.

The menu can be tailored to suit vegetarians or those with food allergies (call ahead). No children under six years at dinner.
