I visited this traditional grill house with locals. That was an advantage as the restaurant employees have a bery limited knowledge of English or any other language. However... don't worry! They are so willing to serve you that you will not need to even speak...More

Traditional turkish restaurant with excellent quality, food tasted great, staff very friendly. Don't ask for the menu, just ask the waiter to recommend! Chances are you'll eat better than you would imagine! Been there several times, would go there again!

Food quality wasn't half bad, but portions were minimal and the sides were nothing special either. The atmosphere is definitely not tourist friendly. Worst part was not the rather high prices, but the waiter aggressively adding 5TL as his tip without me offering it.

If you can ignore the scrappy inside, then you can enjoy the delicious and flavored meat with a very good cooking quality. It's highly recommended to set on Ocakbaşı specially in winter time If you would like to have a intimate and cosy time with...More

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
