Used to be one of the best but nowadays loosing its reputation. Poor quality of food, had Patlicanli kebap but it was overcooked and dry. Nothing special with the mezze's plus overpriced.

Really nice food, not a tourist location, lots of locals. Service was good but level of English was low, so communication sometimes a bit complicated

If you'd like to taste a real Turkish food, this is the right place. It is full of locals, who always visit this chain when they want kebabs and other dishes of national food. I've never tried better kebabs, though I ate them a lot. Service is also great, you can feel the meaning of the word "hospitality" in this... More

This a meat lover's paradise. There is an excellent variety of appetizers to choose from, all served with fresh baked bead. The main meat dishes are well prepared and delicious.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
