I went to Bursa just to try this meal. It's delicious! Iskender is more than food, it's an amazing Turkish experience. Staff is really nice and the place is beautiful and romantic in my opinion.

This place is kind of touristy as it is located near the botanic garden and the zoo. There were 4 wedding parties in the gravel parking lot taking photos when we were there. The place is lovely and authentic and the food was delicious if a bit expensive. All in all a terrific meal in a peaceful setting.
