Finally after 10 days of travel in turkey we experience the desi Indian food. Spicy veg food with salad and papad/chutney. Must visit place and rite next to Taksim square . You will live it and staff is also very good ..

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
