If you are in Istanbul you must eat at Doy Doy to experience genuine Turkish food and service. The staff are very helpful welcoming and honest. The food is delicious and plentiful of variety. You must try The Kabab. At lunch you will get authentic turkey dishes. We love this place.

On a cold night, we were glad to find this excellent small restaurant near our hotel in the Old City. Food was very good, quickly served, and the management was very friendly and accommodating.

First place we ate at upon our arrival at the adjacent hotel. Ordered a lamb casserole with naan and cheese pizza with vegetables. We were served initially a Lavas (a type of puffed up hollow bread) and then came our orders. The pizza was nice but the lamb casserole was more like a lamb stew with vegetables and very watery....

The food is fabulous! The food always comes on time and hot. The meat is always 👌. Also, the restaurant has a great view of the Blue Mosque if you sit in the terrace.

This is perfect example for Turkish tradational restaurant, not much touristic like downtown on Sultanahmet. For that prices are very reasonable if compare other restaurants.Also Location is perfect, only 3 mins by walk from Bluemosque. Awesome rooftop view to one side is Bosphorus other side Bluemosque & Hippodrome. Personal is friendly and provide fast service. It`s 5 floor and all... More

This is fairly traditional place where you can eat well and at a good price compared to many nearby restaurants in Sultanahmet.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
