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

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!
