“Kepabs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Köşebaşı kebap and Şaşlık kebap are my favourite kebaps. Toros salata and gavurdaği should be tested. There is a basic wine list. But I prefer drinking ayran which is a traditional beverage of Turkey made from yoghurt.

“lively with great food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

I suggest a reservation as this is a popular restaurant. We were seated immediately upon arrival, and within ten minutes they were full with a lineup outside. A server greeted us with a tray of appetizers - about a dozen to pick from. We chose sun dried tomato, couscous and yogurt. They brought some fresh bread from the oven (still hot) and we started in. Everything was delicious and if there were more than just two of us we could have had a larger variety of appetizers. The wine by the glass was very good too. For dinner we had the house kabob and lamb chops. Both excellent. That with three glasses of wine was about 200 Lira. Well worth it, and we recommend Kosebasi.

This restaurant is one of the rare establishments, which kept their quality and taste over many many years.
