If you'd like to taste a real Turkish food, this is the right place. It is full of locals, who always visit this chain when they want kebabs and other dishes of national food. I've never tried better kebabs, though I ate them a lot. Service is also great, you can feel the meaning of the word "hospitality" in this... More

This a meat lover's paradise. There is an excellent variety of appetizers to choose from, all served with fresh baked bead. The main meat dishes are well prepared and delicious.

Was recommended by my hotel concierge and they were absolutely right, the food is out of this world, the service is superior and very friendly staff. One if the very few times when I went for a solo dinner and it a very quite neighborhood, really quality at it's best.

Off the beaten track in Istanbul, this fantastic Kebab restaurant has a strong range of kebabs and other local specialities. They have now opened up a few sister restaurants, and I can vouch for the one on Bagdat Caddesi being just as good. When you are seated, they bring oven-fresh pitta breads with crumbled goats cheese and chopped tomatoes with... More

I spent almost 2 hours there with my Turkish friends and it was really unforgettable stay. You can taste perfectly prepared turkish traditional food in few runs - from starters to deserts....I would recomend to choose all the types of kebab. If you are in the city center, this is the right choice for you !!!

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
