I wish I had previous reviews on this site. Visited the restaurant on the 14/7/16. We got approached by an apparent staff member from our hotel, ( but we didn't recognise him), who suggested we try Konak. We had a jovial time, and the pancake/filled naan made by the lady in the front of the restaurant was nice. We got... More

Went to the restaurant with friends and ordered 4 beers 1 small fish platter and another fish dish. They charged us 1000 tl. Total con. Avoid at all costs as it will cost you dearly. This was after a recommendation from cheers Hostel.

They overcharge you with tricks, taking advantage of you. Staff is rude, food was normal, not even quite good. Totally did not worth it. Avoid!

We did not pick the restaurant for any particular reason apart from that we were hungry. It had been mentioned to us after asking around as we were walking down the busy street. We also thought it a good idea to try Turkish cuisine. Besides the vegetables which were very cold and oily, the food was not bad at all.... More

Please avoid this restaurant. I wish I had checked tripadvisor before going there. The place is a rip off. Prices are OK on the menu but when the final bill came out we had to pay 258 Liras for 4 Doner sandwiches, 1 french fries and 4 yogurt drinks. They even charged for 2 plates which we thought was complimentary.... More

After reading some of the other experiences noted, I realized that they played the same game with us with regards to up charging over their table menu and posted prices for 100g, 300g and 500g sized dishes. We patronized the location at Istiklal cad. No:118, on Friday 12/5. Suffice it to say, this is must avoid for anyone.

During our last visit to Istanbul we went to have lunch in a restaurant called Konak at Istiklal street. All the food was great and the meat was extremely tender and delicious . I will definitely go back there whenever I am in Istanbul , it was a good choice for me and my family

I've been to Konak a number of times at various venues along Istiklal since I moved here in 2010 and never had a bad experience ... until now. When we placed the order, my friend asked for an Iskender and I requested a simple Et Durum and was asked 'which size' and so I said, 'normal', and repeated this twice... More
