We were here on Sunday evening, ordered faros salad, kebab kofte and some other stuff. Everything was absolutely fine and tasty. Personnel keeps up the good atmosphere and are positive, not trying to sell you anything. Worth visiting , especially given many low quality cafes in the area. Thank you guys.

Faros is a nice and down-to-earth kebab house which offers good steaks, pides, and kebabs at very reasonable prices. The waiters are attentive, the food is fresh and comes quickly, and the prices are moderate. Commendable!

Faros Kebap is really close to the Taksim Plaza. Around this area there are many different kind of restaurants. In most of these You can eat the same things like Kebap, salads or chicken.

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.
