A very good experience. Delicious food and good ambiance. I recommend it for those who like to have tasty kebab in a friendly and lovely environment.

Unbelievable food, the adana was succulent and super flavousome. Best kebab we had in our whole 2 week trip. Service was great: timely, friendly, attentive, no frills experience. Wanted to try everything on the menu, it all looked so good. Cooked by one man behind...the grill, who is obviously supremely talented! The only issue we ran into was because of its popularity it can be hard to find a time when they have space! But that is just a reflection on how good the food is. No formal booking service, but if you ask to book for another night they will likely accommodate.More

Starters were ok. Adana really good. Enough Raki on the menu. Not sure about the wines. Would recommend again.

Got a small portion because I also wanted a lamb chop, which was also good but the kebab was the real star! Not heavy, nor dried out at all. Moist and well seasoned. Please go out of your way to go here, even if you’re...not in the area; it’s that goodMore

I was on a group tour with Costsaver "Wonders of Turkey". On my 1st evening arrival in Istanbul our dinner was not included so I researched Trip Advisor for a restaurant near the Hotel Ramada Centre that I was staying at for a restaurant where...I can get a kebab. Even with hotel directions and it is so close by, we had a very hard time to find the restaurant. Very popular with the locals and very busy small restaurant. They don't speak English but do have a menu with pictures of food. I had the popular Adana Kebab. I wanted to mention this restaurant as it brings to light how the Turkish people are so nice. There happened to be a Turkish couple having dinner and overheard me speaking English to the waiter who could not understand me asking if they served Apple Tea. The lady translated for me and unfortunately they did not serve Apple Tea. Her husband discreetly left the restaurant and went looking in the area to find me Apple Tea. He came back with 4 boxes of different fruity teas and they said I have a choice of teas to make in my hotel room. I told them I can not accept this and I wanted to pay them for the tea and they refused.More

If you're looking for authenic Turkish grilled food this hole in the wall worthy of being on luded in an Anthomy Bourdaine episode is not to be missed, and wait for a table for as long as it takes because chances are you won't have...an oppotunity to get closer to the authentic aromas of Turkish grilled foods than you will here. Everything on the menu is superb, and I highly recommend the Adana kebab, any of the grilled lamb on offer and the grilled onion salad. If you haven't eaten here, your Istanbul experience will be incomplete.More

For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area
just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used
mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its
chic streets are considered the very heart of
contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of
fashion and a thriving business district meet to
create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a
