“Good, fast and cheap!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

If you're near Istiklal, this is a must try. Their soaked burger is delicious and their doner is one of the best (thought not THE best). If you mix the crushed chili with the mayonnaise on the table, it makes a nice sauce for the doner sandwich which can be very dry otherwise. Fresh orange juice is a good accompaniment. Bambi cafe has yummy food! Servers are efficient too.

“Lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I have read that they have the best Doner in Istanbul. The one that I tried here (I asked for their best, but I think they didn't understand and gave me the ordinary 6TL doner) didn't taste bad, but it was dull and it didn't satisfy my appetite for Shawarma. The place was crowded and they might've had some other good sandwiches (I think hamburgers were pretty popular) but I went there in order to compare the Turkish doner with the Romanian one that I've had several times in Bucharest and I daresay it wasn't as nearly as good and didn't come up to my expectation.

“Best waffles in town ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

We have been advised not to leave the city without trying these fruit waffles. And they were just delicious! Staff members are very friendly too.

“Gd value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

I tried the normal Turkish breakfast (kahvialti) in this branch. It was for 9 liras, there was an ok variety, and the atmosphere outside is good. Its one of the few places that serves breakfast till may be after 11am. The quality of the food was ok, and he service is good.

“Cheap, fast, good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

NIce food for those who doesn't want to spend a lot of money, want to eat something fast, or just have a snack on the run...
Wide variety of sandwiches, hamburgers and wraps (dürüm). Nothing fancy, just practical and good. There's a lot of this places all over Istanbul.
