Known as the Royal Springs, Bursa's renowned hot mineral waters have been popular since Byzantine and Roman times. Fed by magnesium, calcium and sulfur-rich thermal springs, the 700-year old baths were built in the time of Sultan Murat I. The beautifully ornate Yeni Kaplica bath dates back to 16th century.

Uludag Kebapcisi

Reviewed By reviewerist - İstanbul

After sometime you stand in line then you also wait half an hour on the table which is ok till now.They brought you pickles in advance then the meal comes,taste is ok as you can find the same taste in all İSKENDER places as it is its own city you know,after the meal we drank 4 teas.So the bill came,33tl per portion for İSKENDER let’s say ok,then 2 water with gas and 4 tea.There is no paper bill,somebody whispers to your ear 89tl.I understand 66 for İSKENDER,then 3 tl or 5 tl for each of water.They possibly charged 5 tl for tea which had to be on the House.So If you want to be cheated like us,I wish you a nice meal.

Cozy and fresh out of the way place. Young staff, helpful and very dynamic. You get a glimpse of the pizza being prepared: nice touch that raises your expectations. Fans of Italian food and especially pizzas: don't miss this one.

Selcuk Restoran

Reviewed By Osadra

Extremely over rated. Don't be fooled by the #2 position. We went there and it was empty. Just one table with guests of the owner. Cats all over the place.
The lamb meat quality is the worst I had in Turkey in more than a dozen trips.
Finally it's not so affordable and not everything on the menu is available to order.

Haskoyum Pidecisi

Reviewed By Ahmet V - Bursa, Turkey

We went there to have a dinner during Ramadan period with my family and friends (total 4 adults and 2 kids) couple hours ago before iftar (the breaking of the Ramadan fast at sunset.) We were not fasting and we were treated like criminals in a prison.
Waiters were so rude. They even did not say welcome or good evening. Same waiters served to other people who were waiting for iftar like they are king. (I am sure that if we go same place after Ramadan they will treat us like a king too.) So, clearly they made a discrimination because of religious practices.
When we complained about the behaviors of all waiters, we did not get any support from management.
I will never recommend this place even if their food is good because of their fascist mentality.
Note to Hasköyüm: if you don't like to serve people who are not fasting, just closed the restaurant during Ramadan before dinner time.

Reviewed By Luai808

I went there with my family had 3 plates of Iskander and it was really really juicy and very delicious.
The resturant is located inside a park with a nice environment. Very friendly staff and excellent service. The only issue with it it is little pricey comparing with other similar restaurant. It is the location where Iskander Kebab was found which might explain the high quality and price!
The Iskander plate coat around $15. You have to try the grape juice which is made special for the restaurant.

Luckily I was there at around 4 or 5 pm which is the least busy time even though it was buzzing I got a table immediately. They had only one dish which was the Iskandar and it was worth it. The best Iskandar I ever had. The staff were also quite friendly. Overall it was a good experience.
