Urfa Birecikli Hamdi Arpacı 1960’lı yılların sonuna doğru İstanbul’ a geldi. Eminönü Yeni Camii’nin yanında bulunan otoparkın köşesinde ilk tezgahını açtı… Bir küçük ızgara ve seyyar tezgahı ile 7 yıl boyunca esnafa ve gelen müşterilere leziz kebap çeşitlerini sundu. Hamdi Usta’nın yaptığı kebaplar günden güne ünlendi. Gün geçtikçe müşteri sayısı artan Hamdi Usta, aynı otoparkın köşesinde Hamdi Et Lokantasını kurdu.18 yıl boyunca hizmet verilen bu mekânda, Güneydoğu bölgesinin benzersiz lezzetteki kebaplar otantik özellikleri ve hazırlanış biçimleri korunarak müşteriye sunuldu. Restaurantın bulunduğu yerin önce 3 katını sonra diğer katlarını da alarak, şuan bulunulan 5 katlı mekân oluşturuldu.…
I didn’t like the food nor the service, the prices were high for nothing, the meat was poorly made and very strong. We ordered chicken and they gave us lamb instead. The servants didn’t speak English too.
Not somewhere I would go back to.
The food was decent, but overpriced. We had dinner down the road at the Last Ottoman, where we got a larger portion size, better tasting dish, and larger amount of food for the same price.
The waiter was constantly rushing us. I asked for 5...minutes so my fiancé could use the bathroom and read the menu before ordering, but they kept coming back.
One waiter forcibly grabbed a cat from the outside window, threw it to the ledge below, and then laughed about it.
Top floor has a good view, so that gets 2 stars instead of 1.More
I have gone 2 times there but with 2 different fellings. The first time it was with my fiance and the food and behavior were excellent. They gave us a table beside of window with an Istanbul view of Galata Tower. but the second time...was not as good as the first time. The restaurant was very crowded and the food was cold and with plenty of delays.More
We went there for lunch.
Went to the top floor with a great view of the Bosporus. Open panorama. Mild cool breeze.
Excellent menu. Tasty options. Fresh vegetables, puffy bread, yogurt, babaganoush, airan, adana kebab, tiny olives. We could have more but it was lunch....Highly recommended.More
My third time in Istanbul and everytime its a must visit.
1. Great view, book for a table on the edge.
2. Amazing amazing food. Good portion, good quality
3. Great service.
Not to be missed! A must visit!
I have eaten at Hamdi several times over the years. The food used to be better and the portions bigger. I was very disappointed with the eggplant kebab, it had triple the eggplant than the kebab and the kebab pieces were really small. Don't miss...the lahmuajin, some of the best you would eat in Istanbul. Drizzle some lemon drops on it and wrap it around some parsley.
The restaurant is on the 3rd floor with a small elevator and has an open view to the Bosporus, Galata bridge and tower. If you visit the spice bazar (Egyptian or Misir or covered bazar depending on what name is used), you must eat at Hamdi. After you exit the Bazar, it is at your left. Its not cheap but not very expensive. As usual, watch the bill carefully and the service charge.More

Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
