Quality sushi is an exceptionally rare find in Istanbul, but thanks to international chain Zuma, it now can be had opposite the Radisson Blu hotel in Ortakoy. Through glass walls in the stone-floored dining room, customers can watch chefs prepare rolls at the bar or cook up traditional Japanese izakaya dishes like spicy beef tenderloin with sesame, salmon tartare with Sevruga caviar, and jumbo tiger prawns with yuzu oil. Sake is available in the lounge, while in summer, the outdoor, Bosphorus-side terrace gets top billing. A private jetty is available for VIPs.
