Seraf Mahmutbey


7 years ago, when we launched Seraf restaurant in Mahmutbey, although we were quite far from the city center, our dream was to create a place where food enthusiasts could enjoy the most authentic flavors of Anatolian cuisine in a pleasant and comfortable environment. Six years after envisioning this dream, Seraf Mahmutbey has been recommended by 2023 Istanbul Michelin Guide. Ever since, we strive to provide fresher, more unique, and more delicious food, along with improved service.

Seraf Mahmutbey is recommended in the 2023 edition of the MICHELIN Guide Istanbul.

At SERAF, we try to cook dishes that were cooked in the kitchens of Anatolian civilizations while staying true to their original form. This is not an easy task, and it’s almost impossible to do it at home. For example, the original lahmacun is made from meat that is ground with armor, but how many homes have armor to grind the meat? Or how many people can get the artichokes from the best field in Urla during the season when they are at their best?

That’s why we offer everything we prepare for SERAF at SERAF SHOP, where we are sure that they can be enjoyed with the same quality in your homes. Bon Appetit!
