Review: First of all this is not a vegetarian restaurant. At best it should be classified as "veggie friendly." They serve fish. Second, not an appealing place to eat. The service was absolutely lackluster. The server was milling around apparently doing nothing, while I was sitting there for 20 minutes waiting for him to take my order or at least acknowledge my presence. There were a couple of other guests, but that's it. The restaurant wasn't busy. Not a good value. I went in with the expectation that I could have a proper lunch after hiking around Istanbul all day. By the way, it is a bit of a hike to get to the restaurant, especially if you're unfamiliar with the lay of the land. Anyway, first the menu I was given looks nothing like the menu on their web site. So, I ordered a "veggie burger" with salad - a safe standby when the menu looks otherwise questionable - and they brought me this strange patty on a slice of bread with nothing on the plate that resembled a salad. That's what I got for my 18 TL. That's around 10 USD.
