“Nice food in elegant environment. TL 75 Ramadan fixed menu”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Venge has cice food in an elegant environment. It is definitely more expensive than other places with a lavish TL 75 Ramadan fixed menu compared to Haci Paca on Istiklal's spread for TL 40 per person. I opted for ordering a main dish off the menu and with a Ramadan appetizer meze the price was TL 50. Book early for a garden table.

“A good kebap experience”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Venge is one of the best kebap restaurants in Istanbul.The mezes,meat,desserts everything is great.You can order anything you like from the menu.
You can enjoy the atmosphere even more if you go there on a football match day as it is a hub for Galatasaray fans to meet,eat and drink before the games.

“Great place to have dinner.”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

Even though I think it's TOO expensive, it's a great place to have dinner. Everything in Turkey is like 3 times (no kidding) more expensive than in my country (Mexico) lol! (gasoline, rents, clothing, food!)... so for me this restaurant was SUPER expensive but my turkish friends said that it's totally normal. So mexicans, beware cuz it's gonna hurt in your pocket!.... rest of the world ENJOY! =).. It's a great place to watch football, it's super family frinedly, modern, clean, great service, great mezze, great food, super turkish flavor...I genuinely loved it. Worths having dinner there.

“A good kebab in a modern atmosphere”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

I had dinner there with a few friends. As we sat down, we were offered a small bowl of Ezo Gelin soup from the house which was very nice. The staff is nice and attentive and quick. The food is good. It's not cheap but that's what you expect in this area of Istanbul. After dinner they offerred again from the house some small frozen cocktail. The kebab is very good and mezes are fresh and tasty. Recommend it
