As so often on tripadvisor, I simply don't understand the positive reviews. This was simply the worst meal my partner and I have eaten in Istanbul, and we have lived here for 4 years. The special sauce/mayonaise/whatever on earth it's supposed to be was gloopy, gelatinous -- vaguely sweet but with no real taste. The closest thing I can compare... More

For me it is one of the best hamburger restaurant in Istanbul. Their soft and slightly sweet buns with their homemade mayonnaise along with juicy hamburgers and french fries , this place deserves an applause. Service is very efficient and friendly and prices are reasonable. A must visit place if you like hamburgers.

This rest has been serving for years. It is one of the places where you can enjoy a beer or vine with your burger. The half of the restaurant is nicely decorated but the other half is just ordinary. Nice part makes you feel like home. The burgers are ok but not the best. They have their special mayo but... More

Open since 1977, this is my favorite hamburger spot in Istanbul. People actually come from the European side for the hamburgers here. They have a special sauce and I definitely recommend the Sark Burger (with garlic and spices) and Jumbo Burger (or J Burger which is quite spicy). Grab an ice cold beer and some fries along. If not a... More

This is like a classical diner, which hasnt lost the quality since 1980s. One of the best local neighbourhood option if you are close to Bagdat Street shopping area. No tourists, locals favourite. If you read the reviews, I agree it is the best burger place in the city. Their special sauce is unique, and mainly a little different aproach... More

A friend took me to this restaurant during a recent trip to istanbul. He mentioned the most delicious burgers ever! They were amazing, but it's not just the freshness of the buns, and tastiness of the meat. It's the sauce.. They use some kind of magical honey / mayo sauce which is a flavor explosion in your mouth!!!! Just to... More

If you had enough of the touristy kebab, head to this joint for what I call an old school no frills burger house and indulge yourself with the best burgers in town. Their home made special souse will take you back to burger houses before the McDs and BKings overpowered everything.

This is not a burger,.. I tried cheeseburger and hate it. The bread is like a pastry similiar to what we call poğaca in bakery shop which is definetely a no for a burger. İt is sweet and oily type of bread. The meat is very ordinary and it was over cheesy so you cannot taste anything but greasy cheese... More
