Comparing to all other nearby restaurants, this one is outstanding. Very tasty food, liver is perfectly cooked, I also recommend Chicken, which I completely loved.
The service is good, waiters keep the smile, salads are served first and fast to keep you busy while they are cooking the meat.
The reason I am not giving 4 stars is that inside, the air conditioner was not working properly, while outside, the walkway is not very clean.
I would defined go back and eat there though.

They service grilled liver, shish kebab ( not lamb it is cow meat ) and alao grilled chicken kebap. We tasted live and shish kebap, they were not so good, first of all, they were not juicy, they made meats dry.
Ayran drink was nuce, waiters were kind and fast and restaurant was also clean. Prices were modest.
İ enjoyed with mostly cooked onuon and green pepper they were free.

My boyfriend recommended this restaurant so we decided to have dinner there together. It is about 5 stations (by tram) away from Sultanahmet, hence, it is a little off the regular tourist tracks and definitely worth a visit. They have chicken and beef kebab and also serve liver if you would like to try that. My boyfriend says it's amazing. I had the chicken and loved it. The service is very fast and friendly. Everything is served fresh. You should definitely try their homemade Ayran and drink the Turkish coffee after your meal - it's very different from the usual coffee. The atmosphere is a little hectic and loud but since it's a place where a lot of locals eat this really makes you feel like you're in the middle of Turkish culture. Don't miss out on a wonderful experience to eat here!
