Conveniently located for tourists like me near the Zeugma Mosaic museum I suspect is the reason for it's high rating on TA. The lamb speciality (which can be found elsewhere in Gaziantep) was tender but not that tender and the salad was nice. Personally we...More

I can hear you say, what is this salad comment when there is meat. I have to say that the 'kusleme' was good but I liked it much better in Imam Cagdas. But the salad was absolutely legendary. They have their own mix with tomato...More

This was the third time we came to gaziantep because we couldn't forget the taste of the incredible meat we had at Halil Usta's. An absolute delight to taste the special küşleme dish and an equally delicious salad.

Restaurant is located walking distance to Zeugma Museum. Their kebaps , especially kusleme is delicious. Salad is also super tasty. We went there early so had a chance to try their delicious lahmacun. You should go there before 3pm. Definitely go there.

It's been over 15 years I eat kebap at Halil Usta every time I visit Gaziantep. It is far beyond others. "Kaşık Salatası" (Spoon salad) is something you should try. Küşneme is a must to eat as kebap.

This place has a very juicy and tasteful salad which goes very well with küşleme! When you visit this place ask for the special küşleme which they call "Turbo"!:))) It's küşleme marinated with many herbs. I loved it! Highly recommended!
