Fodor's Review

Open since 1887, Imam Çağdaş is certainly doing something right, and the crowds pack this restaurant in the bazaar district day and night. There is a small menu of standard kebabs such as ali nazik, minced meat kebab served on puree of roasted eggplant, garlic and yogurt, and the sebzeli kebab, a skewer of lamb minced with garlic and parsley. The star at the restaurant is the terrific syrupy baklava, so widely regarded as the best that orders have regularly been received from Turkish presidents and from as far afield as Fidel Castro.
