If you are on Istiklal and really hungry, this is definitely a great option to quickly have a cheap and really good traditional Turkish lunch or dinner!

Good food and excellent service ! Good for nonsmokers. You can go there better for lunch. The location is good.

The best cheap option if you're searching for cheap and quick food, but tired of sandwiches. Also good place to get familiar with local cuisine. They could be better only if they had tea.

I am a local and I dine at Balkan very frequently. It is exactly like what we cook at home. If you would like to taste real Turkish food I do reccomend Balkan for sure. Healthy food for extremely reasonable price.... Must see!!!

I'm going to Istanbul 3 times a year and I never miss the oportunity to meet my arkadas at Balkan lokantasi. Typical food for very, very, resonable price. I really suggest this place that seems to be a fast food becouse is a self service...More

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
