Umami – Lovable kebabs at high prices.

Umami is a kebab restaurant located in Etiler. I went there with friends a couple of days ago and simply loved it!
Etiler being what it is, the prices are very high because they cater to the rich and famous but the meat is excellent and the service is very very good. When you arrive, they seat you and then bring to your table a big tray of mezes from which you chose (4-5YTL per meze (approx)) and then you get to chose which kebab you would like to eat. Try not to fill yourself up with the mezes (even tho they are delicious) and have a try at the various kebabs that are offered on the menu. I had a “Cartlak kebabi” (liver) which was beyond words. I’m yet to try something that’s not good at that restaurant. Prices for kebabs range from 11YTL to 15YTL. You can also order online if you live around Etiler on

    Prices of both mezes and kebaps are not high, these are the average prices-as far as I’ve compared.

    Try Tike on the sahil yolu in Suadiye. Expensive, but worth it. Best iskender I’ve had, ever, including Bursa. Salad to die for with nar eksisi. Old school hizmet.
