Turkish term or phrase: kokusu ise berbatmış
'Durıan' adındaki bu meyvenin tadı müthiş, kokusu ise berbatmış.
This is applied to the development of Antalya. As the phrase goes Cennette cehennemi yaşamak!

What is the exact grammar of işe? Why is it dative? The general sense is obvious but işe isn't.
