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

This restaurant was highly recommended to us and a "must do" whilst in Bursa. Initially we asked for the menu but no need because all they serve is a unique kebab dish. Service was efficient but not overly welcoming apart from the headwaiter who was very interactive with diners. Clearly the other waiters were on a mission to serve the... More

This restaurant only makes one thing -- Iskender kebab. It was amazing, doused in butter, and served over bread soaked in the slow-roasted meat juices. Delicious! I do think that this restaurant gets mixed up with another one with the same name just a short walk away. No matter, both are great!

If you are in Bursa, do not miss out on trying the original Iskender Kebab. You can choose between 1 or 1.5 portions. We ordered 1 portion each, and once we tasted it, wished we had ordered 1.5 portions instead. It was absolutely delicious!

First things first, they have one option and only one option - Iskender of course. They have certainly mastered that and it was tasty. With that said we felt the overall experience was pretty average. The service was average at best with the waiters lacking any sort of personality. We felt rushed. Also because there is only one option there... More
