Poor communication, bad service, tasteless and stale food, people are very rude. Horrible food, blend boiled, unflavored, stale. All the kebabs taste the same and are plain meat no flavoring, made me grossed out. There’s not a single dish I’d recommend. I remember Istanbul from the 90s and compared to today they have completely ruined the food experience. Also people constantly try to cheat you. Btw the guide was dipping his spoon and fork directly in our food during Covid. Boring and unpleasant experience. Felt uncomfortable the whole time with people being constantly rude. Would not recommend Turkey as a tourist destination.
