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.

This is the home of the Iskender Kebab. The family can be traced back to Mehmet Oglu Iskender Efendi in 1860's and the Iskender sons who have kept the tradition alive. The Iskender Doner Kebab is well known in Turkish Cuisine and the world over. If you are visiting Bursa then it would be a great shame not to visit... More

We'd heard that this kebab was not to be missed. I was traveling with a few friends and we walked around for roughly an hour trying to find this place - not sure if we just came through a crazy way but we had to walk through like an alley of sorts to find it, but we were so glad... More

Think of a bed of soft, doughy pitta bread slices, covered with soft lamb spiced kebab, flanked by a pile of delicious yoghurt, covered in sauce and then covered again with melted butter at your table. It tastes GREAT. We visited here for lunch while on vacation in Bursa and were very pleased we did. Service was swift, friendly and... More
