Eat whatever you feel like
You are getting hungry… Kanyon again surprises you with its extraordinary concept, because you do not have to start walking towards the top floor, which is generally the usual location of the food court at shopping centers. At Kanyon, you can find one of the selected 25 restaurants on every floor.

You have the chance to start the day with a delicious breakfast. Le Pain Quotidien, Cafe Wien, Kitchenette, Starbucks and Saray are waiting for you for some exquisite moments, both on weekdays and at the weekends. You are hungry at noon or in the evening but you do not want to fill up with fast-food. Great examples of Italian, French, and English blend ‘modern European Cuisines’ with chic menus and ambiances and the world’s most famous Chinese restaurant Hakkasan will be waiting for you to present their unique delicacies. However, if you would like to whet your appetite and have a feast with pure Turkish cuisine, you can always visit Konyalı that is situated on the topmost floor of Kanyon. Wagamama, which entered the Turkish market through Kanyon for the first time, stands among the ultimate choices in Eastern cuisine.

Enjoy the movies in a unique setting
Mars Entertainment Group has opened its 12th cinema complex at Kanyon with 9 theaters that offer technological facilities that make the lives of their guests easier, in addition to the special scenery at its foyer. The gigantic ‘videowall’ in the foyer presents the fragments of the movies and grants the freedom to make a selection among them more easily. While buying your tickets, you can choose your seats yourself, by using the LCD monitors located in front of each box office. After buying your tickets, you can use the touch screen monitors at the entrance of the theater, and by just putting your ticket under its optical eye, you can see your seats one more time, before entering.

Time for events
Surprising activities specially prepared for visitors are among the things that highlight the fact that there is a life beyond shopping at Kanyon. In addition to shopping, Kanyon keeps the sense of “discovering” alive all the time, with different surprises every weekend. You can expect the unexpected at Kanyon, any time of the day! This can sometimes be a concert, dance performance or interactive art activity for kids, and even some parties, exhibitions and much more may be waiting for you.

Exercise in daylight
It is also possible to enjoy the pleasures of sports right under daylight, as a perfect match to Kanyon’s concept. MAC offers an industrial, sportive and modern ambiance to let you escape from the chaos of the city and make you feel like you are on holiday for a couple of hours. The basic reinforced concrete construction of the structure and its technological equipment are all in the open. Lighting accesories, furnishings, plants and equipments create an urban atmosphere, where the pool, basketball field, and fitness & cardio grounds are illuminated by daylight all through the day.

MAC also offers an extraordinary Spa. All black in color, NuSpa is an extraordinarily serene place… It offers various types of massages from Ayurveda to reflexology, from warm stone therapy to Thai therapy, and also special treatments like chocolate, wine and caviar therapies that are applied by Thai or Turkish masseurs/masseuses.
