“Simple, honest, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had quite a few different meals here. They were all good, but my favorite was the kebab with patlican (eggplant/aubergine) and yoghurt. They also have lahmacun that is not on the menu. As often with smaller restaurants in Turkey: no alcohol.

“Great food, great service and great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

I stumbled across this place on my first day in Istanbul. Since I've been back everyday for lunch. The food is very cheap (8 lira for a chicken shish!) and is really good. I went to another place and paid four times as much and it was rubbish compared with Ortaklar. The staff are lovely and the place has a good mix of locals and tourists. Perfect for a cheap and friendly meal that is tasty and filling.
While you wait, listen out for moronic tourists who complain the tea is too hot or that they only drink Coke, not Pepsi. It's good entertainment during the short wait for your food!

“Cheap but fine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Good staff, the room upstairs is fine for a quick stop. The food was ok and the price is cheap.
I would recommend the place for a quick lunch.
Minus : the menu is smaller on evening. No kebab for example.

“Very good deal, delicious, fresh and good portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Went here tonight with my boyfriend and we had chicken shish with soups. Food was very good, service attentive and very fair prices. I would recommend that those staying in Sultanahmet eat here.

loved the soup, and the kebabs so much. compared to other restaurants this place serves good food for a good value. It was very close to the hotel we were staying at and ended up eating here several times.
