“My favorite Istanbul kebabs”
Reviewed 20 June 2013 via mobile

I live in Istanbul and have been exploring restaurants for 6 months now.

This kebab house is by far my favorite.

The food can not be faulted. The standard Turkish menu of all the kebab favorites are absolutely delicious. Always comes with a huge fresh salad too.

The atmosphere is great, always lots of people and sitting on wee stools.

And the value for money is great. Have paid a lot more for a lot worse!

Location is perfect too, just off istiklal street.

Highly recommended!!

“Excellent cheap kebabs ”
Reviewed 8 April 2013 via mobile

Crammed with locals on a quiet Sunday night which is always a good sign. Kebab plates and wraps. The chicken wraps in particular were lovely; fresh made bread, succulent charred chicken with parsley and tomato - 7tl. Make use of the jar of pickled chilli, cumin and paprika condiments. No alcohol.
