Excellent food

Finally found a place that serves something that is not some kind of kebab. Portions are generous, food is amazing and the prices are really good. Great hummus!

Very delicious food, extremely friendly staff, very clean too and with very considerable prices. The place is managed by a Palestinian family. I almost had supper there on a daily basis during my visit. This is a must visit in Istanbul

Hummus is not something you find served in cafes or restaurants in Istanbul. So we did a bit of "Googling" an discovered this little place next to Taksim Square "Falafel House". The place serves a limited menu but the food was delicious. They do plates of hummus served with Falafels and salad along with a basket of Pita bread which... More

We went there for dinner and had ordered Hummus and Tabbuleh. They were extremely delicious and reasonably priced. Outdoor seating was also nice. Nice small place to eat in.

Went there for lunch. Had the hummus and a falafel wrap. Both were delicious. The hummus is some of the best I've had with plenty of bread to go with it. Good price as well.

The ingredients were fresh. The restaurant was clean. Outdoor seating provided the Taksim Square ambiance and the food was spicy enough. Great place. Would highly recommend it. Also was open at nearly 12 midnight on a Saturday night. Big +.

Went there to have falafel and a chicken wrap. Left extremely happy at the freshness of ingredients and awesome attitude. Prices are very reasonable and the quality is much better that the tourists traps you have all around taksim. Also, try the hummus and the tabbouleh . They are as fresh as it can get. Enjoy.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
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 nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
