Third time I've been here and I still over order. Enormous bread with spicy tomato dip comes as a courtesy. Good range of kebabs, huge salads. Well worth looking out for. Interesting decor

A turkish friend recommended the place. The kebab was great. The staff was really friendly. The setting is also special makes you feel home. It is also not expensive. Would definitely go there again.

Great food. Really fun decor and old-fashioned setting. It was like stepping back in history while we ate. Very fun. We stumbled upon this restaurant while exploring Istiklal area of Istanbul. We would love to return there someday.

I've been there several times. Presentation's so so, but the food and the atmosphere are amazing & it's not that touristic.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
