This is a typical traditional Turkish okcabasi and their Beyti Kebab is one of a kind, pefect mean-fatty meat ratio and charcoal flavour... I personally prefer the yogurtlu kebabs and they are extremely delicious as well! Bus try with Raki!

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
