I was in Turkey on a dirt bag trip but still wanted to have a decent dinner or two. I chose this place because the food looked good and was a good price. The gözleme was good and I would go back for it.

This was my 3rd time in the restaurant and it never fails to satisfy me. Excellent prices, very central and friendly staff. We had tavuk kavurma, manti and eggplant with yoghurt and paid just 38 TL. Highly reccomend it.

Marko Pasa is one of these Turkish restaurants featuring an oven close to the door where a woman keeps baking delicious bread, pide and other dough based Anatolian delicacies. The ambiance was good except for the poor smoke extraction for we left the restaurant feeling we'd been travelling the length of Anatolia sleeping in tents by the fire ;-)

I came to Marko Pasa after we tried to go to Aretin Yeri on Sunday evening and it was closed. Fortunately, Marko Pasa saved the evening. As other reviewers have noted, the first thing you notice is a lady in the window rolling out flatbreads and cooking them over a large griddle. These breads are called gozleme and they are... More

This place is great. So happy we found it on trip advisor. Just off the main pedestrian street. Good food, good prices. Two of us got a small mixed mezze, cheese gozleme, Turkish dumplings, and Anatolian chicken shish and it was WAY too much food but only 50TL. The mezze was delicious as was the shish.

Best local food near Taksim at local prices. Not many people know about this restaurant. One of their best dishes is the kavurma which you must have if you visit this restaurant.

As I was staggering down Istiklal Street in Taksim square, I needed lunch. I did not want to stop in some quickie doner place. I ventured down a side street, and there I saw a little jewel of a restaurant. There was a women sitting in a front window area, rolling out flatbread. It looked very exotic and inviting. As...
