I thought I knew most of the restaurants in Istanbul especially around Taksim but I didn’t know this one. It is not exactly on Istiklal street but in an alley closer to the Tunnel end, on Orhan Asli Apaydin street. It is small but has...More

Truly tasty home style cooking. The staff were incredibly helpful and the prices very reasonable. Full of locals. Of note, they only serve lunch, not evening dinner.

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
