I tried a lot of Iskender restaurants in Bursa but this one is the best! Fine entourage and just one specialty; Iskender!! Taste fine and the service is very good. You've valet parking and a beautiful garden and a "konak". Just order Iskender and drink Sira. Prices mid range but really worth. Take a look into the konak and make... More

The iskender was so delicious I ordered 2 meals and still want more. They have a grape juice that taste very good. The staff were very outstanding in every aspect. There is rooms at top floor that is considered as museum, they resemble the way of living in old times. I highly recommend visiting this restaurant.

We went to the original restaurant with high expectations, based on the good reviews on TripAdvisor. We were greeted by the owner himself, a very nice gentleman who speaks very good English. We understood that kebab was the only dish being served. We ordered also the 'sira' drink which was recommended and it was good. The dish was also good,... More

Absolutely loved our Iftar dinner. We were welcomed by the man himself, family owned and operated. He gave us a brief history on the restaurant and sent us inside the small museum with wax figures to take pictures. The Iskender is amazing, don't skip the butter. All the side dishes were tasty. The way the soup was served was beautiful.... More

This traditional Turkish restaurant is a must visit while you are in Bursa, it only serves the delicious Iskender Kebab meal. It seems they have different branches in Bursa, I had my lunch in the one next to Grand Mosque. The restaurant is very small that there was a line of people waiting their turn to have a table, but...

We visited this place on recommendation of the reviews and while it was an interesting meal I have to say I've had a whole lot better for a whole lot less. OK so now I've had an Iskender Kebab, the only reason it was worth 26TL was so I can say I've actually eaten one. The restaurant was OK, the... More

If you are visiting Bursa then it would be must to visit this place. The building itself was very interesting with many Ottoman type artifacts and the history of the origins of the restaurant and the family who started the business. The food was traditional kebab, apparently its the oldest kebab shop in Bursa. We went there with a group,... More
