Great Turkish at Reasonable Prices

Great authentic Turkish at reasonable prices and no nonsense prompt staff. Highly recommend it for casual dinning both business, families or leisure.

This restaurant offers wonderful variety of regional food from Aegean part of Turkey. They are expert on thin crust Turkish pizza and soups , but also cooks almost every type of kebabs and other food. Furthermore, they are open 24/7 and it is best to visit after your night out around 03:00 in the morning to enjoy very delicious soups... More

I visited the restaurant in Kıbrıs Şehitleri Cad. 1443 Sk. No : 83 Alsancak, KONAK / İZMİR where we were served half portion and charged for the full price! Our complaint were simply not listened by the personnel and the manager! We will NEVER have any meal in this place. Poor quality, poor service, high bill!

I have eaten in this chain many times also in Izmir and the quality is the same every time. Their pide and lahmacun are especially good.

We ordered the meat ball kebab and what appears to be their local pizza dish and a lentil soup. They were all pretty good but it was priced too high for its quality.

I have been visiting this restaurant in every two or three months with my friends, since it's close to my work place since its opening. Food is OK, especially tripe soup, crispy pita and its specialty Manisa Kebab are worth mentioning. But the same cannot be said for the prices. Every time I visited, I saw that the prices were...

We ate dinner there after a drink by the ortakoy mosque and bridge. The mixed grill for main course hit the spot and the kebabs were tasty. A bit of a more formal atmosphere with some having business dinners and diners outside dressed more smartly than other places we visited. Service was ok, but have the feeling the waiters were...

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
