Very delicious street food in taksim square. If tou go there you will definitely see why is there a huge line outside the shop waiting patiently to taste these mouthwatering wet hamburgers. They are cheap, delicious and totally recommend it for someone who wants to...eat street food in taksim.More

A small buffet. There are about 10-12 seats to sit inside. When the weather is nice, outside may be good choice to eat. Very crowded but service is very fast. The hamburger is different and wonderful. I've eaten two hamburgers Hamburger is 5.5 lira. Hearty,...inexpensive, flavor is spectacular. But the presentation would have been better if a little richer. You can also eat doner kebab here but my recommendation is the wet hamburger🍔🥛More

I came here on recommendation from TripAdvisor and I was not disappointed. The hamburgers albeit wet, taste amazing. They cost 5.50 TL. I also ordered the pomegranate juice (30 TL) and then wished I hadn't as it was bitter.

I guess that islak burger is something you either love or hate, but it's worth finding out which one of these two groups do you belong to. We were not sure if a burger with a soggy bun is a dish we would enjoy but...it turned out we did, a lot! It's so soft and full of taste. We visited Kizilkayalar three times, pretending it's on our way (although it wasn't ;) ). The place is definitely not a place where you stay for long, it's very tiny and hectic, it may be overwhelming because of that. But then it's the fastest of fast foods we've ever tried, you just order you burgers and get them in less than a minute, et voilà! P.S. I noticed a lot of people writing that's basically a dish for drunks, but for the record, we were not drunk and still enjoyed them a lot ;)More

Ayak üstü de olsa şahane... Limonata müthiş. Islak hamburger yemeyi abartmamak için kendinizi tutmalısınız :) On top, but perfect... The lemonade was terrific. You should keep yourself to not to exaggerate eating wet burgers :)

It costs 5TL, it is small enough but tasty. However it is very heavy for the stomach due to the cumin. It is ok for one or two.

This is the place to go for real good meat shawarma! Fresh, warm, tasty sandwiches! You get to choose from 3 types of breads! Usually a long line, but moves fast!
