Two story with a great a balcony for an elevated street view, variety of food, great for Doner Kebab wraps. Good food was very fast, personally wished it was a little spicier. Off a side street of Istikal.

Marmara stands out immediately from the nearby Istiklal Street because it's white and brightly-lit. The staff is welcoming and the food is all right and speedy, but the real shining element is the outdoor seating on both floors.

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
