Where to start! If the staff at this group of restaurants put as much effort into the cooking as hassling or ‘entertaining’ passersby they might serve half decent food. Before you go in, please know that the group of restaurants on both sides of this lane share the same kitchen. This goes for Hatay, New Hatay, newhatay, Déjà vu and... More

we were walking back to our hotel after visiting the spice bazaar looking for someone to have lunch. There were a group of restaurants together and we opted for the one that seemed busy. it was a cold day but we sat outside as there are heaters and so we were quite cosy. The service was a bit slow but... More

Ok, first things first...be aware that Hatay and the nearby Deja vu are essentially one and the same. We chose the latter because the guys milling around the entrance of Hatay overdid the fake-friendly persuasion to the point that it became a chore to pass them every day (we were staying opposite in the Sultania hotel.) We didn't realise that... More

I think this spot is not categorized correctly in price-- which may prevent many from coming here. It is not a $$$$ spot. Wonderful service, nice location, delicious food and for the $ price. I highly recommend.

I enjoyed the dinner kebab at 21lira. It was lovely. I was delighted with the tea and pastry after the dinner. It was a lovely touch! I would definitely go back next visit.

A very fine experience with many options at really reasonable prices. We thoroughly enjoyed the variety of food, the great conversation and the ambiance at Hatay. As all restaurants in Istanbul try to pull you in, these guys do it in a professional way and back it up with great service and really a nice menu. Can't recommend them enough... More
