    Simple menu, delicious healthy food & great concept executed well. For non- beef eaters there is lamb sheesh kebob. Pickled peppers & free chili condiment really spice up the meal. Pair it with Ayran.

    The kofte is so juicy and tasty that it is a must have!! Be prepared to queue to get in but it's clean and simple food flavours are worth it at a great price!

    Loved the atmosphere, staff and of course the food. We had Kofte and Shish kebab. Kofte was far better. Don’t forget to ask for their spicy souce. It’s free and does magic 🌶

    Their Kofta is amazing. Fatty but delicious. I go there every time I visit Istanbul for a good meat meal. Cheap too.

    The köfte they make! Köfte was just mind blowing! You should definitely taste the regılar köfte and take salad as a side. You won't get dissapointed! 😋

    Very authentic and is generally visited like a sort of attraction cuz the history of the place goes back to 1920! Locals go here for kebab and meatballs which are genuinely good here.

    The one, the only and the original Tarihi Köftecisi in Istanbul where you obviously can eat the best grilled Köfte meatballs of Turkey.

    This famous Turkish eatery has been in business since 1920 - Often imitated but never duplicated. Come here and try a delicious köfte (grilled meatball). They don't accept credit cards so bring cash.

    It has been open since 1920,very historic. The quality of the meat balls are still pretty good. Not the fanciest decoration, it is like a huge cafeteria. Price decent, they do not accept credit cards.

    An old brand name koftecisi in Istanbul, very crowded. the quality was awesome the taste was delicious but the interior design is awful. Prices are a bit high according to the food portions.

    Would not be my number one köfte spot. Try Filibe or Namlı Rumeli at Sirkeci for a quieter and more authentic experience.

    Don't confuse it with its neighbor, you can definitely taste the difference between the köfte! Tarihi Sultanahmet Köftecisi is the one closer to the tram stop.

    If deciding between the meatballs and kebab, go with the meatballs. They're better, but both are good.
