Tahin – Lebanese food in town

I had been so looking forward to going to this place and finally I went there one weekend. It is located in Karakoy, the trendiest place in Istanbul recently.

Apart from Karakoy, they have other branches in Moda/Kadikoy and Rumelihisarı.You can check out their website to get directions if you are nearby those locations.

I am very keen on Lebanese cuisine, especially falafel and hummus, so this place is like heaven and definitely meets my expectations.

They have plenty of food on the menu. If you have not tried any Lebanese food before, the decision is going to be very hard. Please ask the waitress for help; they are eager to explain each food you see on the menu. Please do not forget to try ayran mixed with mint, it is so refreshing and goes perfect with your food. If you are two or more people, you might order their set menu with couple of starters. Do not leave this place without having a tahini with honey and walnut dessert.

The place is not very big, but since you will be very busy with your delicious food, you won’t get bothered by anything. The restaurant is very simple in style but with a great view over the street.

It is just a small eat-and-go place, especially convenient for people who work nearby. The quality of the food is very good at a very reasonable cost.
