The Cheers Soul Kitchen is staffed by very friendly guys and the food is very good and very nicely presented. I enjoyed the staff very much as they would sit down with you and share stories etc. A nice relaxing spot in the middle of the busy Sultanhament area of Istanbul.

A great gem hidden away close to the old city centre. On the outside it looks like a hostel (which is situated in the same building) but once inside it is a proper restaurant with two great spacious outside balconies for dining. The owner is a modern young Turk who speaks fluent English and truly goes out of his way to make all his guests feel at home. Probably the best restaurant host/server I've ever met.

At first glance the menu looks similar to all the menu's in Istanbul but in reality it is far from standard. All the dishes are made with a unique twist and all taste amazing.

The atmosphere, the service, the food and wine together made this a perfect dining experience for us. We greatly recommend visiting Cheers Soul Kitchen even if it means going out of your way to get there.

We ate at this restaurant as it was close to our hotel and we weren't disappointed! It's set away from the main tourist streets, on a pretty cobbled street, nestled amongst little guesthouses. We sat on the balcony area and although it was raining, the atmosphere was wonderful - great music and blankets supplied if you're cold. The food was beautifully presented and extremely tasty - probably the nicest meal we had in Istanbul. The price was very reasonable too. Would highly recommend.

Cheers Soul Kitchen is a pleasanr surprise. We had beer, mezze and calamari. Though I can not yet assess the local food, everything was well done and delicious. The view and the lovely and helpful service are a plus.

The food was so good we ate here twice. The chocolate mousse cake is truly wonderful. The staff were very friendly and they played great music. We enjoyed talking to the owner about why he picked this name for the restaurant.
