Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

So I’m not sure you can get a more authentic down to earth kebab anywhere in Istanbul which is simply where the locals go. We walked past a few nights and it was always rammed. We manage one night and got a table. The menu...is indeed basic with the main kebab accompanied by wraps, salad, soup and I think hummus. And whilst the tables might be rustic the meat is deliciously tender. Certainly wont cost you much but it’s a real Istanbul experience.More

This place came recommended on a random website of best places to eat and it did not disappoint. It was so good we went back a few times. They have a small menu but that’s all they need - the kebabs were the best we’ve...ever had. So tasty and friendly staff. Very cheap. The card machine took payment twice (random) but straight away they gave us a refund. Would highly recommend this place - it’s within the hustle and bustle but well worth seeking it out!!More

I think who come to Istanbul should go there once! The quality/price is Ok, but the taste is really really good, and quality is really good, I'm wondering why they are not in Michelin Guide!

After visiting this restaurant I realized that I'm not the only one loving it. I went there without any expectations my first day in Istanbul. What caught my eye was the flames from the charcoal grill. 99% of the kebabs eaten before has been made...with electrical heat source. The second good sign was that all seats were taken, but we got seated within 5 minutes. Service may seem hectict, young guys literally running with plates and menues, while more senior staff taking care of payments. When seated we got a plate of sliced onions that is included + we were offered salads and mezes. We settled for a harrissa-style tomato salsa, rich and spicy = recomended. 2 minutes after our order we got fresh baked soft flatbread and 2 skewers each. Succulent lamb, seasoned and grilled to perfection. This is a modest fast food joint, but the lamb is divine. Angus Dei.More

Very good price for quite a good quality ! It is around 15 euros including dessert and beverage. It is crowded but it is worth it to wait a bit for a table :)

Best kebab in Istanbul….short simple menu which is always a great sign of a restaurant. Superb food and you can wash it down with one of the fresh juices from the stalls nearby ! Fast food İstanbul style

We had lunch here, again this was a restaurant researched by my husband who loved it here as the food was a delight, the environment was busy and the waiters did the best they could. We’d probably come here again for lunch if back visiting...Istanbul.More

Tbh it wasn't good as I had hoped. The soup was just lentil soup nothing special. The bread was basic. The meat on the skewers I found a bit weird... it wasn't chunky it was small strips and bits... had bits of fat aswell... not...all meat. Wasn't that filling as a result. Seating was a bit tight and being offered the mezzes at the start without clearly being told it was extra was a bit deceptive.. Was nice for the one off experience and trying something new. Service was quick and good.More

Amazing - small menu, quick service and good prices. If you want superb table service and a long slow sit down meal don’t come here - if you want great kebab and no frills it is perfect - lots of character
