Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

Location - in the bustling Istiklal street right in the middle of everything . Small hole in the wall cafe but has 3 floors of seating through a spiral staircase ! People - its a fast food joint , on the go doner kebap , pomegranate juice and of course the Kumpir . So dont expect service , help yourself quickly ! Food - just order one Kumpir for 2 people as that is one big ginormous potato stuffed with whatever you need from the options available . We did the veggie one with pasta , veggies , sour cream , bulgur wheat , tomatoes , cous cous , olives , yogurt . You cannot believe the stuff that goes in ! but what a potato fully loaded and satisfying on a blistering cold rainy day ! Just eat it !! See the photos to belive it . Dont miss it ! Never saw it anywhere else but on Istiklal street with a few vendors .

Never stop bargain at all times. Dandurma or Ice cream is TL 5 everywhere in Istiqlal street. I asked several place. When I went for this place, I asked directly for 3 and I gave him TL 20 waiting for money back. He said one is 15. Long discussion with no use. So he took 3 times more because I didn't ask for the price. One hour after I sent my little daughter to ask for ice cream price and he told her TL 5.
Unfortunately this guy gave me a very bad impression. He is a big cheaters and I advice everyone to ask for the price and then bargain. For Taxim Park: NEVER AGAIN

I was in the mood for chicken schwarma or doner, and there are a lot of places along Istiklal Street that serve it. However I did a double take when I saw the price here - just 4 Turkish lira for half of a very large sandwich.

A gentleman with a very big and very sharp knife slices meat, either chicken or beef, off a rotating spit. The meat is then placed on half of a sub roll along with lettuce, tomato, and pickles. Nab a seat in the dining area upstairs and watch the madness that is Istiklal Street while you eat. When you've finished, treat yourself to an ice cream, also served here.
