And I love that Sir Evi is placed in a narrow street, close to historical attractions. We had dancing, both... read more

Yes, maybe its price to be in Istanbul, but somethimes you have to pay a bit for the location. The food is great, the staff is very nice and welcoming. I enjoyed this place a lot during my visit, i had meals other places, like in Kumkapi, but it was no way near the quality we got here.

Went here two evenings in a row with a group of colleagues traveling. Super friendly staff, delicious food and great location in a small alley near Sultanahmet.

Little quaint restaurant in the heart of Sultanahmet. Very attentive and excellent service. Went out of their way to cater to our wishes, even wifi. Great turkish dishes.

We spent a long weekend in Istanbul and stayed in the Sultanahamet district close to the blue mosque. There were several eateries in a trio of streets opposite the plaza in front of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. We tried several and the food was good. However the food at Sir Evi was a cut above the rest and... More

Top class cuisine with best service. Had dinner here alone but don't feel lonely in such beautiful atmosphere. Live music is quite enjoyable. Clean and very layout. Friendly stuff will chat with you but just right amount that you won't feel be disturbed. Owner is very experience with Istanbul so if you need guide info then definitely come to this... More

The guy outside restaurant (who must persuade you to enter the restaurant) didn't press us or pulled our sleeve and that was decisive moment. Inside (it was cold to sit outside) - cheerful athmosphere. Food and wine were good. Spread appetizer is on the house. As they thought that I was a bit cold, they brought burning coal!

First night we were tempted in by the salesman on the door, who charmed us, and negotiated free extras. The food was superb and all the staff were charming. The next night we went straight there and had an even better meal, and the live music was good too. I had a hookah pipe which was fun, and shared it... More
