It is a nice traditional restaurant near the castle. You get the ayran in a traditional silver big cup with deep spoon. The food is really good and fresh. Quite a big restaurant with an upstairs. So you Will always find a table to sit. Must go when you are in gaziantep.

We started with a Lahmacun each, consumed with some Ezme and Gavurdagi salad, then continued on with Ali Nazik and other specialties of the house, with house ayran, served in... More

We have to eat there once every 2 or 3 months, the (lahmacun) is very delicious and the famous Turkish (Ali Nazik) is also very delicious, you should also drink (Ayran) and finish up with a pice of (Baclava)

Simply great food! Tried some different dishes & baklavas, and all of them were great! The portions are big so I would advise to order as you eat.

This place is a kebap fast food place. No alcohol served. It is also famous for the baklava. The prices are not too bad. A must see location in gaziantep.

This is certainly the best baklava in the world. You should try all different types but my favorite is "Havuc Dilimi". Their kebabs are also good and service is fast. However, you don't visit Imam Cagdas to eat kebap but you eat kebap to continue with your baklava :)
