Saw this restaurant while walking back to my hotel and went in with my friend. We tried the Karisik Izgara Taba (Mixed Turkish Grill). It contained portions of all the different kebabs, we really enjoyed it.
Good portions and very good taste.
The staff were quite friendly.
Its a little inward from the Main Taksim square; but would recommend it to anybody wanting to try the Turkish kebabs.

This hotel was exactly opposite the Point Hotel where I stayed during my visit to Istanbul.
They serve very goods Italian food and the place is always buzzing with crowd.
Its one of the top places in Taksim area to have decent International cuisine.
There was live music in the evening and we enjoyed it with our drinks.

We were hoping for some great Turkish meat (we are meat lovers!) and we were served bad looking appetizers and greasy minced kebabs where you could feel the fat while chewing :(
The only plus was the cheese pie at the beginning.
At the end they over charged us for the kebab because they said that since we were a family they increased the portion. I don't believe them and it doesn't make sense. We ordered 5 appetizers and 4 main dishes for the 4 of us (2 adults 2 kids) and didn't ask for any extra portions. So bottom line they inflated our bill and we couldn't say a thing.

The food was great, the wine was lovely, the service was excellent - we enjoyed this restaurant so much, we went back for a second time. Our waiter was very sweet - I wish I remembered his name so that I could give him a shout out, but he was a young man who told us that he'd been working there for eight years. Would definitely recommend Faros to anyone staying near Taksim.
