Fodor's Review

This longtime grill house is an Istanbul institution, with its huge selection of kebabs, as well as appetizers like mini lahmacun (thin flatbread topped with spicy ground meat). Although the food may not be too different from other kebab houses, Hamdi's three dining floors still tend to be packed with both tourists and locals. This makes for a lively, even boisterous, atmosphere, and service can be a bit harried; make sure that you get—and pay for—exactly what you order. Reserve a table on the restaurant's terrace level, which has wonderful views of the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus. For a calmer dining experience, have dinner on the early side.
