Can't argue with the meal. The kebap was on the dot, unadulterated and full marks to the restaurant for keeping the tradition of one speciality. The fermented non alcoholic grape juice with pulp was also unique and compliment the food very well. Is it worth taking a boat ride to Asian side? Well if you are a foody and lover... More

If you are on the asian side it is a classic and the food quality is great. It is a well situated (just beside the post office and very close to the ships crossing the bosphorus). The classical Iskender is going to change foreigners opinion on the "greek sandwich" or the "Döner"

This restaurant considers itself the pioneer in Iskender kebabb plates , it is not bad and very good service but it is not a special one like it let you think. It is a very normal restaurant but expensive. I ate more delicious iskender plates at a better price. Please note that it only serves one plate which is Iskender.

Went here following good reviews on this site. I get the historical aspect but the kebab was average to say the least. The service was good but overall I was very disappointed as I expected great things.

You cannot get better than this. Don't be tempted to compromise. You must try this kebab to fully realise what quality is.

I had tried Iskender at different other places before I went to this place with a friend of mine. The Iskender is good however it is too expensive. I paid around 35 TL (15€) for the medium portion. At places like "HD Iskender" or "baydöner" the food had the same quality for half the price or even less! We didn't... More

Iskender kebab is one of my favorite turkish meals and that one in this restaurant was not bad. It is just that one would expect something more from a restaurant with such a tradition and so many good reviews. The staff should be warmer especially if you are the only guest. It was a strange feeling to be in an... More

Good Iskender Kebab. You will find so many iskender kebab in Istanbul ... in fact every restaurant is Istanbul has it, but the owner explained to us that theirs are the original one. The kebab is tasty and buttery. Worth to try ! The cranberry juice and the tea is also good.

My boyfriend and I ate here because it was right near our hostel and we saw the good reviews on TripAdvisor. We had a great meal of iskender kabob, the only thing on the menu. The restaurant has a good atmosphere, and has clearly been around for a long time. The service was what we had experienced in the rest... More
