The menu covers a variety of cuisines, from a wide sushi selection to fresh lobster, plus in-house interpretations of indigenous dishes such as the Köfte 29 (meatballs) and the lamb medley with stuffed eggplant.

Banyan

Banyan
Banyan, the ultimate gourmet Asian Fusion cuisine pioneer in Istanbul offers you an 'eating experience'. Asian fusion may be “le dernier cri” by Western standards, but it's still finding its feet in Istanbul, in tandem with the city's farouche flirtation with health food. So by local standards, Banyan is a pretty novel concept: a creative take on Eastern cuisine combined with organic ingredients, all harvested to the button of political correctitude.
