So it was our first night in Taksim and we entered the first restaurant that looked reasonable . We ordered food as per the pictures and the menu prices . It turned out rates are not same and final bill was 4 times higher then it should be. Food was very average. Avoid such scam restaurants at all costs. Stick... More

The restaurant is at the busy Istiklal st. Very welcoming staff, great ambience and service. The food is great and fresh. The Ali Nazik dish is one of their specialty dishes, really good. Also the Biklawa for desert is a must!

I was at miniaturk attraction and walked 2-5 minutes and found out this amazing restaurant. They have a unique way in serving dishes. We loved it and they have kokorec sandwich, visitor must try this grilled "paunch". Very nice people and they speak English.

Had a poor experience at this restaurant. The food was good, but the service was exceptionally poor. Once our menus had been removed the waiter recommended a dish without disclosing that it cost 10x the other menu items and added another dish without permission.

This is my last lunch before leaving Istanbul. Konak is really the master of kebab. We tried four different kinds of kebab. All of them were perfect. Nice and hot bread. Great hospitality and end with Turkish tea.

I do not understand the negative rantings here. That was not our experience at all. The staff was friendly and prompt. My wife had lentil soup (very good) plus chicken shish (one of the best chicken we have had in the last month in Istanbul). I had the lamb shish (also very good). With drinks, it came to 50 TL,...

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
