Good quality, fresh good. High quality lamb meat. Beware, the meat is very fatty and people from western countries often don't like fatty lamb meat so much. Worth the experience though and also the lentil soup and salads are great. I suggest if you are...a couple or 3 people, order all the menu basically.More

After seeing numerous youtube videos of this place we decided to try the food. It was OK kebap, but the waiters bring you salads and dips you did not ask for, then charge you for it. The place is in the heart of tourist trap...central, so beware. Only eat the food you ordered, and when they bring other dishes to your table, refuse.More

I had a great experience at this place. The food was fresh and the staff was friendly. The price was reasonable, and the food was yummy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others. Very busy place.

don't hesitate to try it if you are a fan of barbecue meat. the taste is unbelievably awesome, the restaurant is placed near Sultan Ahmad and the closest Tramva station to it is Marmaray Sirkeci station.

This was basically donair type meat on large skewer, but placed horizontally. A thin skewer is inserted on surface layer and then sliced off. Meat and spices are quite tasty.

Rather disappointed - the portions are super small (had to order a kebab and a wrap after, and I don’t eat a lot), huge part of the kebab is fat as well. Yes, the meat is good but that’s not unusual for Istanbul or any...other city for that matter. Service doesn’t exist. Not sure why our concierge insisted on us going - totally wasted dinner time.More

Shawarmah place is located in public areas of Istanbul, It's so delicious and tasty that the method of preparing and serving is quite different from what I have experienced. The place is packed with people, which indicates the quality of the product. Highly recommended

This is borderline street food in a small bazaar area. No-frills, quick service. Very small menu (7 items), but that's all you need/want. Ambiance is 100% local, and the food is fantastic! Might be a little overwhelming for first-time western travelers, but if you keep...an open mind, savor the sights and sounds, and have an empty stomach, it is one magical experience!More

As a real kebap must be! Beef with excellent quality. A lot of turkish people. That’s mean good quality and approbation!
