Such a fantastic place, amazing starters plus super fresh beef. it was a bit spicy but I believe that is the reason of being special. Friendly staff (well, like any other place in Istanbul) and clean. at the end, price is reasonable.

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
