Known as one of the finest Turkish delight shops in Istanbul, Haci Bekir attracts locals and tourists alike with its sweet treats. Owned and operated by the same family for over 200 years, the shop boasts a long history of making delights--or "lokum," as the locals call this specialty--as well as other classic Turkish treats. Try the plain, rosehip, walnut, and pistachio varieties, and, if you like them, take home a few boxes from the shop. These locally made goods are a traditional gift to bring back from your travels, and make a yummy snack on the plane ride home.

  • Maybe it's a little pricey but according to precedent and sold products and quality are very good. Continuing the same quality and service for many years, this cozy and old shop is not necessarily music. Hope you like them. And those old types of hard candy in taste is still very beautiful and tasty.

  • Ali Muhiddin Hacı Bekir, 1777 Turkey continued its activities, since the earliest known of Sanders. Colorful hard candy, marshmallows, Halva is very famous.

  • Probably because they were invented here and it's always the same family who continues the tradition... The place is small not terrible deco outdated packaging but the Turkish delight as always so good, and nothing to do with those you will find in airports!

  • Sales staff are aloof and indifferent, but the product more than makes up for this. You can select your own assortment of sweets or just grab the pre-packed lokum on offer. Amazing.
  • Remarkable desserts. Sitting here typing this as my wife and I eat the traditional Turkish desserts.
  • Marshmallow factory
