Some of the best falafel and humus I've ever had. Very friendly staff that made us feel welcome. We had breakfast there twice in the 5 days we were in Taksim Square. Owner was constantly around checking on us. Recommend giving this place a shot while in Taksim Square.

I´ve read so much about this place, but for me it was not a "wow experience". The falafel was decent.

A great feeling of exploring resturants from other nationalities comes when I find this place and ofcourse a must-go for vegan and vegetarians , I enjoy falafel wrap and soup and tabbouleh, The tabbouleh was one of the most delicious and fresh salads that I ever have had.

Literally the best falafel I've ever try. They were crispy and soft at the same time. So fresh and delicious. Falafel wrap is also the bomb - juicy and crispy. All ingredients are fresh and taste amazing by itself. Hummus was so creamy, no chunks, no weird aftertaste. I was asking for no oil on top, so it came amazingly... More

Really tasty falafel and smooth hummus. Food came quickly after we ordered and there is air conditioning inside (somewhat rare for Istanbul!) which was a relief in this summer heat. There is also a few tables for outdoor seating. An enjoyable meal at reasonable prices. The location is not far from Taksim Square, so easy to get to.

There are plenty of restaurants to visit in the area, but some stand out more than others. When we were walking around looking for this place staff from other restaurants attempted to lure us into their restaurants. We found this small restaurant along the pedestrian walkway and placed our orders. The food was very good and their French Fries made... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
