Yes, an updated favourite: where to get great Turkish food in Istanbul. Here is my article for Forbes Travel Guide about the best 4 Turkish restaurants in town… and I didn’t have room for a 5th so here it is: Beyti is another of my favourites. This beautiful, traditional restaurant focuses on quality meat, fresh local vegetables, Turkish wines and exquisite desserts.
Established in 1945, it’s been a favourite of the jetset and visiting heads of state, many of which have left behind a relic of themselves which is displayed on the ground floor. Afiyet olsun.
