The Tunel branch has a super cool vibe with massive mirrors and deep-bass techno blasting with a view out onto the buzz-y bar zone. We had dinner here twice and the food was excellent both times.

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
