Our hotel recommended this place to us after we said we were foodie types looking for some awesome local cuisine. The girl described this place as ~10 tables, very authentic, and a bit difficult to find. When we got there, the owner welcomed us and brought us a complementary mezes plate of five delicious things- two yogurt blends (cucumber dill and garlic, perhaps roasted eggplant?) a tomato salad, roasted eggplant and grilled onion and garlic. Along with this came an amazing mint salad, also complementary. The menu was focused on an assortment of yummy sounding kebabs. My husband and I both ordered the special- the Adana kebab, mine with the garlic lavash wrap and his with a spicy tomato salad. We were well on our way to food coma with the complementary mezes and we knew we were in for a complete food coma situation in the very near future. The kebabs came and were so tasty, we ate every last bite because we knew we would never forgive ourselves if we left some deliciousness untouched on our plates. The owner came to take our plates and I said yes of course we were also having the dessert. Unfortunately we have forgotten the name, but it was like a deconstructed baklava, lots of crunch, honey, pistachio, and walnut, all served with some fresh cream. Overall amazing, a great find, and you need to go there.

In the very very center of the city, 200 meters to Taksim Square, on the first parallel street to Istiklal Street. You go down through a tiny little entrance in to a tiny little, barbecue house. You will have very warm welcome, and very delicious mezes (you don't need to order) before Adana Kebab and other various kind of meat all cooked on the big barbecue at the back of the restaurant. To be seated beside the barbecue and ask your choices directly to the chief is also a possible and exiting. One of the best... May be the best traditional, famous Adana (a city located on the south of Turkey, very east of Mediterranean) style Kebab and serving. Reservation recommended.
