In the last outpost of Europe this restaurant offers wonderful food made from fresh ingredients (nothing defrosted here) from all over Asia - and it is all delicious. It was our last meal in Istanbul and our party voted it the best. No bland tastes in this eatery. The Turkish fare far outshone the tourist offerings found elsewhere in Sultanahmet... More

I didn't eat here but I enjoyed a few glasses of wine w/my travel chicks. Our waiter, Romeo (Rahim, I think) was delightful. He flirted with us ladies (60, 60+ and 40 YO) The front patio is a great people watch. I don't like Indian cuisine, so I opted for liquid diet. Wine prices were a bit high @14TL but... More

My friend recommended this tiny cafe, which seemed as authentic as you can get in Istanbul. The service was impeccable and the food delicious and the ambiance divine on a late evening. I got a mixed kabob plate with a half carafe of wine, all superb, for a fraction of the price one would pay in the U.S. And the... More

Interesting cuisine! Although promoted as an "Indian" restaurant, this offers so much more. The curries etc and the various breads are excellent, but Turkish as well as "Asian" food is also served. My hotel was next door to Dubb, so I dined here several times, mix and matching my dishes. This was "fusion" cooking par excellence! The owner is very... More

We did not like the smell of the other local seafood restaurants, and Dubb had some interesting choices, so one evening we stopped by. Comfortable, fun place to relax, with lots of snack dishes to share. Great paneer, garlic breads, toppings. Lovely evening watching the locals go by.

We went to this restaurant after reading the same in this website, we found the restaurant after some search but at the end it was not worth. We ordered vegetarian dish and roti. Roti was not cooked properly and the curries didnt have much spice, paneer was not tasting like paneer at all, tasted like some kind of cheese which... More

Craving some Indian food during our visit to Istanbul, we ended up at Dubb Ethnic. Location is quite good, being in the midst of Sultanahmet. However, the food could have been better, we had the paneer makhanwala which had absolutely no 'Indian' taste, no spices, very lil salt, we ended up garnishing the dish ourselves in order to make it...
