We really enjoyed our feast here. Along with the main dish come a table full of side dishes, soup and bread. We were stuffed by the time our kebab came, but it was so delicious we fought on. The owner was concerned that we didn't likenit because we couldn't finish it. He admonished us for eating to much bread. The... More

If you are in Gaziantep and want to eat the local lamb kebabs that the city is famous for there are a million places you can do so and although I only made it to a handful in my 3 days in Antep this place was the best. In fact my best meal in Turkey. You get a huge meal... More

Incredibly rude service personnel, very aggressive, even insulting. Filthy place, grease all over the place. Shoes stick to the ground because of food stuff and dirt. Puts Antep to shame. Don't go.

Great Turkish cuisine, very rich offer and service Unfortunately the local is busy and very close to the kitchen, so a lot of noise disturbs the client. Anyway that's a place to suggest for the high quality of dishes and abundant sevrce offered.

This place is just a relentless assault on the taste buds (in the nicest possible way.) Gaziantep is the home of turkish food and this restaurant is our favourite - its perfect in every way. Standouts included the lentil soup, icli kofte, kunefe and the mains. There is just one item I would recommend they ditch and that's the fried... More

They have 2 locations. And the food is excellent. Generally what ever they serve the taste is superb. They are soo good in kebap taste that they compete in Gaziantep with Imam Cagdas and Kelebek as the best tasting kebaps in the world.

This restaurant offers one the best Gaziantep cousin with very reasonable prices but until recently only the locals were aware of it. However it is still a hidden gem needs to be found. The ambience may be surprising, moreover can be found uncomfortable for some, but when you taste the meals I am sure you will forget where you are.... More

At Çulcuoğlu Et Lokantası, one chooses the meat dish and the beverage, and the rest is taken care of. In our case, several kinds of salads, (delicious ezogelin) soup and the obligatory bread was served. By the time your main course arrives, you barely have any place left. The kebabs were good: the adana kebab was spicy - not for... More

If you're hungry, you shouldn't miss that place.A little bit difficult to find for foreigners, a real heaven for gourmets though.For meat lovers of course.If you are a vegetarian the whole may be disappointing.I strongly recommend.
