As first, they have very fast service. Secondly the live music, which is very local music of Turkey, is very good as well. Regarding the food, it is very average one. I tasted nothing special.

All is awesome except management lets customers smoke like a chimney indoor although it's illegal! Really a pity for such a historical restaurant. Hope they will change someday and will follow the rules.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
