Kebab, Shwarma restaurants in Istanbul
- Sort by:
This neighbourhood kebapçı serves lots of tourists, but it also provides plenty of locals with belly fuel. You can grab a table on the street or order to take-away - either way you'll get a perfectly adequate kebap dinner for under YTL10 or a quick lunch of mercımek çorbası (lentil soup) or sulu köfte (meat balls filled with rice and cooked in a tomato-based sauce) for considerably less. You can also order a beer or glass of wine here.
Fabulously positioned in the grounds of Topkapı Palace, Konyalı is usually swamped with tourists but still worth a visit, particularly as it's the only eatery in the palace. Try to get a table overlooking the Golden Horn and Sea of Marmara (book ahead) and consider sampling an Ottoman sherbet with your meal - you'll see their bright colours glinting from the large glass decanters on display. Food is stock-standard cafeteria-style fare.
