Develi: "great Anatolian dishes" Istanbul Ili Restaurant Tip by marktynernyc

Istanbul Ili Restaurants: 48 reviews and 91 photos

Reviews had praised this specific location for their kebaps. The restaurant also has views of the marmara Sea. Had lunch here - everything was delicious - the "raw" kofte, the lamucun, the pistachio kebabs, the walnut dessert - everything. Unfortunately the upper floors and terrace weren't open for lunch so we only had a partial view of the sea. The room is very nicely decorated in maroons and cream whites. The only odd thing was they don't serve alcohol/wine until the evening (possibly 9 pm - might have been due to Ramazan - not sure) Great little neighborhood - small children playing, the food vendors splashing their produce. I would recommend this specific location highly.
