Ma'na Restaurant: the soul of Turkish cuisine

traditional

The spirit of traditional ‘meyhanes', revisited by an inventive young couple.

Meyhanes are typical Turkish taverns that serve meze, salads, fish, and seafood, all generously washed down with raki. There are many in the Karaköy district, but Ma'na's unique atmosphere, redolent of authenticity, sets it apart.

Chic, elegant, and bright, the place has mastered the art of Eastern and Mediterranean meze: hummus, fish cakes, courgette fritters, kaskarikas (zucchini skins), and vine leaves, all made with ultra-fresh products.

To this are added about 30 rakis of varying alcoholic levels, served in glasses of three different sizes the choice is yours. There are crowds on weekend nights, so arrive early or book ahead.
