Great mixed plates that can be shared and the bread is amazing and cooked fresh to order. We are going back here tonight. Went to one of the fish and kepbap places across the road - so bad in comparison! We spend 100tl with drinks for 2 and could not finished all we ordered!

Dined here last night and were a little underwhelmed, based on the 4.5 star rating. My partner and I each had a main course (lamb shish) and found the serving a little small. The meal was tasty but not exceptional. All the tables around us were offered free bread upon being seated - we weren't, but it came quickly and... More

My wife and I are staying in Taksim, in our 3rd night we were tired and searching for a nearby traditional kebap restaurant, we were lucky enough to bump into Faros kebap, delicious authentic food, calm atmosphere, friendly staff, 3 mins walk away from taksim square, WiFi. I definitely recommend it.

Well-balanced taste, fresh bread and nice service. I'm not saying that it's a "must-go". But I would go there everyday if I could.

It's my first time in both Turkey and Istanbul. I gather that you can get gourmet cuisine in the restaurants of the five-star restaurants, but I don't have the resources to stay or eat in those and I'd far rather eat the kind of foods the locals do when visiting a place - otherwise, what's the point of leaving home?...

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.
