We had an exelent meal with Esra! We highly recomend it!Vote : 5/5
What a wonderful evening we had with Esra! We lucked out that it was just my husband and me so we had Esra all to ourselves. Even though it was just the two of us, Esra prepared food for a crowd. She just kept bringing out one delicious dish after another. At one point we started thanking her for the dinner and she said, “wait! The main course is still to come.” From start to finish everything was perfect and Esra’s lovely personality and excellent cooking skills truly made this a night to remember.Vote : 5/5
I will preface with that I am a chef who owns three restaurants and that I spend all my free time traveling and eating. I’ve been curious about eat with for a long time, but this was my first time trying it. Esra was super lovely and her food is fantastic. Huge variety of items, all delicious and well seasoned. Good conversation and tips for Istanbul, would definitely recommend.Vote : 4.7/5
