If you want traditional Turkish cooking and particularly if you are a meat lover, this is authentic and terrific. Mainly Turks are eating here. Grilled meats, as well as ample choices for the mezas. Of course, Rake, beer and wine are all availblle.

The staff here are very friendly and will explain to you in English what the different dishes available are. This place seemed very popular with the locals - always a good sign! Delicious food at a reasonable price in a great location - highly recommended.

Living in Istanbul for over five years, I prepared myself beforehand for the common ocakbasi bill "miscalculation". But in this place it came in excess of 30% more from what the actual bill should have been. Quite bad even for ocakbasi standards.
The food was also under average, Just days before had far better kebap at nearby Kenan Usta.
Certainly not going back again.

Chopped lamb superb. Mezes cold but excellent. Football on screen. Turks fill up the seats after 8 pm. No menu outside. Raki similar to Pernod but with a somewhat bitter taste.

If you like places where 1001 waiters run around you, where the food is served cold, where you can test you maths and Turkish skills by discussing mistakes in the bill.with the manager, Beyoğlu Ocakbaşı is the place to go!

We found this place through an online rating on a Turkish website, but will never return again.
