Standard Turkish food enhanced by super efficient service and great staff

All different types of meats available - you just say how much you want. Great salads; free snacks on table and free tea/coffee afterwards make this an enjoyable and economical experience. And the staff were really friendly and helpful

Food came very quickly, but it was rather bland. If it wasn't for the delicious red sauce on the side, it would have been difficult to eat there. But lunch was topped off with a delicious honey-drenched bread with cream dessert and tea. However, the total experience was quite average.

This is an unbelievable Kofteci. The service is impeccable, and the food is spectacular. As you enter you're greeted by friendly staff members, and whisked away to a table. Almost as you're seated food arrives. It's like magic or they have ESP. OK maybe not that fast, but next to immediate, the food is fabulous. Really.

Packed with locals (always a good sign), we had a delicious dinner here of lamb kebabs, fresh bread, bean salad and yoghurt. The food was good value (37 TL for two) and the service efficient. We also found a waitress who could speak decent English and so help us order. Worth a visit.

You can have the main dish and healthy salads, so simple and delicious. The good services and the decoration reflects the spirit of the city.

Located on the main street in Iznik this is a great place for lunch. Quality of meat is excellent, good Turkish kofte with sides of fresh salads (do try the authentic navy beans salad) - also try the typical Turkish desserts - tea and coffee is complimentary. Despite the lunch rush the service was outstanding.

It's one of few nice restaurants in Iznik. They have several kind of köfte, all very delicious. Also the sauce they serve is a must. Their sweet menu is quite rich. Prices are average. Despite the crowd, the service is fast. Strongly suggested.

This place is famous for a reason. By far the best Köfte I have had in Turkey (aside from that made within a local Turkish persons home). You guy it by the gram and the sides are plentiful as well. Finished off with some Turkish tea and you have yourself a great lunch or dinner.
