Came here past midnight, around 1 am. Ordered 2 kebab wraps (that's all they had left) 1 coke zero, 1 ayran, and 2 water bottles. All came out to be 22.50 TL or just under $8. That is superbly cheap for the quality. I was extremely pleased to see that they grilled the meat fresh right in front of me.... More

I went to this restaurant with friends, following the "advice" of Mr. Anthony Bourdain. We weren't disappointed: very simple and lovely kebab, the best one I've ever tried! The place is tiny but the employers are very efficient and very kind. Definately a place to go if you are in Istanbul!

It is here that I had the best adana kebabı ever and they had spicy green pickled peppers at your discretion in a big box on each table.

I must admit I had seen this place on a TV clip from Anthony Bourdain so I put it on my list of places to go. I am very happy I did. This goes to prove that simplicity and specialisation goes a long way in taste. I tried a double wrap. I actually had two. It is simply delicious. I... More

It was easy to reach following its location on the map, just a few minutes off istiklal. I tried the double lamb wrap and it was delicious and was only for 14 TRY. Will definitely go for it again!!!

It has been at the same location for years and became a popular spot for street food... It is a great place to experience kebab and meat... The freshly made salads add tasteful joy to the meal... Not only hungry clubbers but also it is popular among anyone wants to have a quick bite...

Great durum,better than any other meal i had in istanbul for a relatively small price. The only set back is that you have to wait for15 minutes for the sandwich.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
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 nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
