Offers a set menu, a mix of starters including lahmacun (Turkish pizza), soup, icli kofte (meatball in fried pastry), a plate of mixed kebab and a delicious dessert in kadayif, for around 65tl. Very good meal for the value and the staff and friendly and fast.

Firstly attitude of waiter was not polite, trying to force us what he has In mind. Meat was ok but not that super we were expecting from Gaziantep which is famous for it. But künefe was really good especially taking the amount of pistachio on it. Prices are affordable.

There are lots of place to taste kebap or any other traditional Antep cousine. Some of them famous but somehow they are like tourist traps. I suggest you to go this place and taste excellent dishes with great hospitality and nice prices (very nice)

This restaurant was another one recommended to us by Turkish guests staying at the same hotel as we were. It is around 15 minutes walk from the castle in the center of town. Getting local advice cannot be bad and we were not disappointed. In fact the restaurant is frequented by locals. The décor is very simple, but in the... More

Here you can taste the real local food in Gaziantep. Not fancy or popular like Imam Cagdas, but here take more local visitors. I also advice you to try the KUNEFE all covered with pistachios after your dinner.

If you are in Gaziantep and want to eat the local lamb kebabs that the city is famous for there are a million places you can do so and although I only made it to a handful in my 3 days in Antep this place was the best. In fact my best meal in Turkey. You get a huge meal... More
