A century old history of Hacı Abdullah Restaurant is the continuance of “Ahi Community”. Generally the history of such deep rooted establishments witnesses management passing from father to son or management passing into other hands by being acquired by other companies.
But for Hacı Abdullah Restaurant, neither is true. The journey of Hacı Abdullah that began in 1888 had continued by the restaurant being passed from the master to the apprentice. In the last periods of the Ottoman Empire, a restaurant named “Abdullah Efendi” was opened in the "Karaköy Pier”.
The business license of this restaurant is personally given by “Sultan Abdülhamid II”. Official and private groups that visit Istanbul on behalf of their countries were welcomed in “Abdullah Efendi”. And in 1915, "Abdullah Efendi Restaurant" was carried from "Karaköy Pier" to "Beyoğlu". And the restaurant continues its service in the ground floor of “Rumeli Han” located on “Istiklal Street”. Throughout this period, “Abdullah Efendi” was again passed from the master to the apprentice.
