The food is super delicious, the kebaps are moist and tender, the salads are fresh and well seasoned and the bread is to die for.

This place is very close to Taksim square. I recommend it if you are in the mood of having kebab and you are in Taksim. The place is not so big and has both indoor and outdoor seating areas. Good customer service and decent prices.

Very tasty kebap and meatballs. Pides were also delicious. Our waiter was really nice and also very fluent in english. At the end of the meal they served us turkish tea. It's also a great value for the money you pay.

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
