Great food, out of main tourist area. Authentic feel and authentic flame grilled bbq food. Very simple menu but cannot go wrong. We did not try the dish that it seems to be renowned for (goat head) however we ordered all the usual grilled stuff....The chicken was so moist and cooked to perfection BTW! 9/10 for value and quality.More

This is a nice place for local Turkish cuisine. I stayed with family at a nearby hotel called Ramparts. The food was good and wasn’t expensive.

Small local restaurant, with delicious turkish food. We ordered two spicy kebab portion , and a mix of salad. A portion can be bigger per person, more meat, or my personal opinion is that is so delicious, and not enough, so you can’t stop to...eat :) Definitely recommend this place! (total price about 16-17€).More

We ate here on our first night in Istanbul. Great find, we will definitely be back. Real local food, great service. We had turnip juice (you must try this), lentil soup, mixed kebab which came with a lot of salads and a couple of deserts,...it was less than 20 euro for 2 of us. A cafe not a restaurant, the staff were so friendly.More

I like Turkish food (like most of the people) and been to Turkey many times but the best food I ever had, it was in Restaurant “Tezeveren Baba Ocakbasi”, This place is located in the area of Turkeli Road which is close to Sultan Ahmet...Mosque though it is not main street as Ordu Road but still it is not far and hardly 15-20 minute walk from Sultan Ahmet Mosque area and 5 minutes walk from Ordu Cadessi, and the walk is worth. The place is conjusted and dining hall is medium but the food is superb and prices are economical, I and my wife had a delicious lunch for 40 Lira and it consist on Sheesh Kebab and "Shorba" (Mutton Soup) with bread and cold drink. Highly Recommended.More

Perfect in all fronts to see a tiny place to be this busy comes with a great surprise. Try all food. But do not leave Istanbul without trying the world famous tribe soup (kelle paca), kebabs AND the holly kunefe.
