Not much to say. it is the very best restaurant of its type in Istanbul. whatever you eat is excellent. legumes, vegetables, soups, especially the doner is one of a kind. service is fast and efficient. prices are affordable. its a pity they dont stay open late.

If you really want to taste perfect Turkish cuisine you have to visit this restaurant at Kemerburgaz, Istanbul.

If you are late for lunch some varities may get... More

Doner is good. Also they offer home food which are really delicious. I like the soup especially iskembe and paca ones. Ciger sarma or something else with ciger (i don't remember the exact name) is really good. Good price.

Traditional home food at its best. Yes, Döner is delicious, but you'll miss a lot if you don't try daily selection of lamb delicatessen.

It is a very very good place for the people who want to eat delicious home food and doner. It is not cheap I think but I can say prices are moderate and reasonable. The owner is always on duty. Specially at lunch it is very crowded.

This is an old known address, it used to be a best in class "esnaf lokantasi" then with real estate developments around some minor cosmetics came in place but the food is the good old delicious one. Doner is for sure the best choice, other turkish kitchen dishes are all good. My son prefers doner & firnda sutlac. One if... More

I like this place. Doner is very tasty. They have a broad selection of pot dishes, as well. I don't end up going as much as I could, since I find the place a little crowded and tight (small). Therefore I did not end up tasting too many of the dishes. Recommended.
