Very close to our hotel and a wonderful restaurant. Very busy, we had to get there early to secure a table, both nights we visited the restraunt was full. My husband and I love Indian food, and eat it a lot, and we can honestly say that this is one of the nicest Indian meals we have ever had. The delicate balance of spices was just right and the portions more than enough. On our last visit we had to sit outside due to no further space, but the patio heater was kept on full power and we were each given a blanket to ensure we were warm and comfortable. Waiters friendly but not over powering. A lovely place and well worth the visit.

$30 for 4 chunks of chicken is not worth it and did not come with rice either. Food was decent flavor but cannot say it is really indian food. Had indian food in london a few weeks back and it blew this food away. Did not care for waiters sarcasm and when a large group came in that is the last we saw of him. We waited at the front cashier for a few minutes until another busboy gave us the check. Only 2 days in istanbul and find turkish food not appetizing. So far little food for the amount paid. I would come back to this venue if they took more pride in their indian food and doubled the portion size.

I ended up in this place because a person in my group really wanted Indian food and this restaurant was rated fairly high in tripadvisor for Indian food.
The building and the restaurant itself are extremely nice, very well kept, and with attention to detail. But the owner/main waiter is quite annoying - he put on such an act, as if we were in a 5 Michelin stars restaurant… And the food was quite mediocre - I never trust menus that combine many different types of cuisine, and indeed this was just a big mix with no real attention to the dishes. Too bad, because the restaurant itself is really charming.

There is only 2 Indian restaurant in Istanbul, and Dubb is one of them have 2 branches, Dubb Ethanic and Dubb Indian. Food quality is excellent. Place is small but this is the only place where you can get Indian food. Restaurant can cater 50 people easily at one go so good for groups.
