Our tour leader suggested we go to the original iskender while in Bursa. I had no pre-conceived idea as to the taste of this dish but wow. The melted butter flavour permeates through the thinly sliced meat. A must try when in Bursa.

it's a small place and you have to wait for service at least 15 minutes, food is tasty not so cheap but it worths, there is a debate who invented iskender kebab but this one is also delicious like some of the competitors.

When in Bursa eat the Iskender Kebab. Even if you stay for a whole week, this will be all you need to eat. It has the calories of a medium size steam engine, but it's delicious. The Iskender Kebab is very well made meal, tasty, not too salty (a problem with many kebabs I found) nicely spiced and comes with... More

The meat is better than a donner in London. I guess it is worth going once but it is expensive for what you get.

As the home of the original İskender, they make it better than anywhere else. However, you can find very good alternatives for well under half the price.
