Close to the bazar area, a perfect choice if you want to enjoy traditional and authentic turkish food. Staff is really welcoming and treat you very kind. We ordered some nice BBQ kebab, and we got a lot of side dishes, mostly yougurt based. Take note they don't serve alcohool. Also, the prices are really good.

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.

We really enjoyed our feast here. Along with the main dish come a table full of side dishes, soup and bread. We were stuffed by the time our kebab came, but it was so delicious we fought on.
