Perfectly positioned by the Hawthorne Cinemas for a movie and dinner date, Downtown Istanbul dishes up traditional Turkish feeds with a modern twist. Seated amongst the stylish surrounds, start with Turkish bread to dip in flavoursome baba ghanoush and hummus, and more unfamiliar mezze dishes like oven baked eggplant filled with peppery tomato and yoghurt, then move on to the real stars of the show: Turkish flatbread stuffed with spinach and feta and cooked over a grill to create gozleme, or pide, a Turkish style pizza topped with both traditional and modern ingredients.

Need something with more protein than carbs? The char grill dishes up the likes of marinated lamb shish and garlic prawn skewers, or get a little bit of everything with the King’s Mixed Grill. And of course, you can finish off your feast with traditional Turkish delight or house made baklava, or better yet, get them both plus a few more sweet treats with a dessert tasting plate.
