Small local restaurant. We were only customers at lunchtime which proved to be a bonus as the Chef put on a fantastic cooking show over the grill, had us participate and took some pics. Excellent food, generous portions and very reasonably priced. You won't be...disappointed!More

This place is very local, I loved the atmosphere. You can find this restaurant close to Taksim square. We arrived almost closing time, the restaurant was empty. We could sit next to the grill, it was a great experience to watch the chef how to...prepare the food and cook it. The food is great because of the grill it has a smoky flavor. Staff very friendly, helpful and kind.More

Four of us just happened upon this place as we strolled down a side street. Extremely welcoming and friendly staff. Mixed kebabs cooked on the barbecue beside our table. The chef even took a photo of us with the food cooking in the foreground. Very...tasty food, and lots of fun chatting with the staff.More

So we wanted to experience some genuine Istanbul restaurants and went to this place as we noticed some locals were dining there. The menu selection was a disaster and the food not at all tasty, as a matter in fact, the opposite. Also, when paying...the bill they added some additional items and tax to our check that should not be included so to summarize, bad food served by cheaters. Don’t dine here!!More

We found this restaurant through other people's ratings and decided to try it. It definitely exceeded our expectations. We asked to sit in front of the charcoal grill and our cook was phenomenal. We weren't overly hungry to ordered the Turkish pizza and Lamb shish....Well, we got a huge variety of food, much of it as tasters/extras and went home stuffed! The chef not only cooked our lamb shish to perfection, but gave us additional BBQed tomatoes and peppers when he saw we cleaned the plate. He gave us a plate of marinated onions, extra traditional spiced flat bread, and an eggplant side that were delicious! The service was excellent and friendly. Would definitely recommend!More

This is a hidden gem in Taksim Square. Actually almost all natives aware of this great place but unfortunately famous guides are missing. It is typically Turkish; the starters are really tasty, all vegetables are freshly prepared an delicious. But the biggest Wow goes to...kebap: it is the best in town. Lamb, beef, kebap etc.: you can chooee yourself and they will cook it just in front of you on a huge charcoal grill. The servise is great as well. Everyone is kind and helpful. We will surely go again. Highly recommended. Thanks to everyone for this great dinner at Beyoglu ocakbasi :)More
