Classical Turkish Food with Some Twists

Large arrow left

Just outside of the Grand Bazaar on the top floor of the Armaggan store is Nar Lokantasi. With a more upscale feel than most other places in the area lunch (or dinner) here is a nice rest from a day of shopping. The food is Classical Turkish and some dishes have a more contemporary twist. One has the option of choosing a selection of small dishes (meze) from the open buffet or ordering from the menu. Everything is very tasty. The bread that is baked on site right in the dining room is delicious. The decor is plain but soothing and one has the option of either sitting in the dining room or outside on two different terraces.
