The Fifth Floor is located in the heart of Cihangir, an artistic neighborhood of Beyoglu, steeped in thousands of years of history. Its view from the roof terrace is so stunning that sometimes it�s hard concentrating on the food!
But the dishes are well worth paying attention to! Playing with fresh and light ingredients, Yasemin has designed a menu representing the best of many world cuisines, like Indian, Thai, Cambodian, Italian and Turkish. Her home-made brown bread is irresistible when brought to your table still hot from the oven with a little dish of spicy olive oil. All pastas and desserts are made on the premises as well.
One can already feel one�s about to walk into a very special place, when coming up through the warm-hued sunflower-colored stairway, leading to the terrace. After many years of enthusiastic decorating, Yasemin has created a wonderful bohemian atmosphere, full of special touches and details, with a pleasant homey feel. The restaurant�s ambiance is truly one of its kind, with its subtle yet omnipresent woman�s touch. Not only her mind but also her heart has gone into the endless array of hand-made items, from the colorful beads adorning romantic candles to the giant pictures of her adorable kitten!
As a result, the Fifth Floor�s patrons are generally equally bohemian, including many actors, writers and artists. The smiling, casually dressed staff blend right in with their surroundings.
