This place is a bit more expensive than most around but it's worth it. Meat is fantastic. Service is more than acceptable. Very busy in the evening time so if you want to enjoy meal in a quiet atmosphere do it in lunch time.

The Zubeyir is a dining experience! The salivating aromas from the the char grilled meets cause an immediate appetite. Starting with platters to share, the "pumpkin hummus," tomato cilantro, and eggplant dishes along with the pita and flavored flatbreads were a meal in them. The mixed grilled meet entree was tender with tastes of flavor that included hints of the land where the animals grazed.

The atmosphere, service, and the owner-sitting behind the "Ocakbasi" cooking the meets makes this an Istanbul must.

Do not miss a meal at this place! The service was friendly and the food was delicious. The kababs and the salads are to die for! If anyone is visiting Istanbul, then do head out to Zubeyir for a meal. You won't regret it!

This was by far my favourite place to eat in Istanbul. It took us a while to find it and we had to wait an hour to be seated (we didn't reserve in advance), but it was definitely worth it. We ordered aubergine dip to start which was incredible and then I had chicken shish kebab which was so delicious and perfectly seasoned and my partner had the lamb which he said was fantastic. It was so fun to sit at the grill while they made the food. The bread and salad they serve with the dishes are tasty too. My partner and I had a great meal and great evening!

Zubeyir Ocakbasi was recommended by a Turkish friend and did not disappoint! The food was nothing short of amazing. Very tasty and fresh - would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Istanbul, even if it is the only meal you eat in the City whilst on a short stopover!
