I love real good Baklava. The best in Istanbul you have to buy at Karakoy Gulluoglu in the Rihtum street, Karakoy. It is close to the Galata Tower.
See for yourself:

I met the founder, Mr Mustafa Gullu who started the shop and workplace in 1949. Since then not a single other shop was opened. If you want the best Baklava in Istanbul, you have to go here. No alternatives :D
Since I normally stay at the Moevenpick and it takes about 30 minutes of frantic driving throug the city. Cab driving in turkey is something that follows a few simple rules:
- Change lanes, just because you can
- Do NOT look to the cars in front of you
- Keep no distance
