Description Nice atmosphere, great location, tasty food, this place has it all. Lotusum Restaurant & Bakery (previously known as Istanbul Cafe) has recently come under new ownership breathing much-needed new life into it. Across the street from XiYuan (John Hopkins Univeristy Dorms), this cosy little restaurant is the only place in Nanjing that offers authentic tasting Turkish food. The hummus plate and kebabs are definitely worth a try! They serve Turkish tea and coffee and have now added a bakery too. The Lotusum Bakery offers real treats that have that taste us foreigners miss from back home! NKN recommends the newest venue to partner up with NKN!
