The variety in the kumper buffet let u know that u r infront of great experience. Nice food, tasty, clean and it deserves a try. The price is good too, and I advise anyone who visit istiklal street to give it a try.

Juices are very good but it isn't a clean place. I drank a orange and carrot juice and it was perfect. The waiters are very kind and it's open till late.

Potatoes with loads of topping is so good. But not just that they have nice shawarma ie done kabbabs so a very nominal price. In peak hours i saw people queuing up to place order. But once you reach your turn the delivery is pretty quick.

Even that was a new concept for me but for a potato I paid twice price of a normal meal in Istanbul. I will not repeat this

Like subway sandwich, they take big size potato (really big. Not seen this big potato) and bake them. After baking they cut half and put cheese and butter and knead with smash potato. Then they fill with salad, veggis and other veg and non veg filling. You have option of veg also. A must try dish.

Good palce to get some food in you fast. It is kinda on the expensive side for basic street food since its on Istiklal, but you get a lot of potato and its pretty tasty. Anything they have is pretty good.

Whether choosing it baked or fried, you will certainly be satisfied. I recommend especially for shoppers on Istiklal steet who won"t afford losing time in a fancy restaurant. Very generous by the way

Difficult to get the token to enable the potato maker to start his work. Language issue, and finally when he does start stuffing the potato, he's in a tearing hurry so if you are unsure of what you want, he gets impatient as there's a line building up. So make sure of all your toppings before you get in line... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
