Siva restaurant is a great restaurant located in sultanamhet close to the blue mosque. This has been the best meal we had so far in Istanbul, I ordered the chicken curry, it comes with rice, French fries and vegetables. Very tasteful and nicely presented. My wife had the vegetarian chef special, it's a vegetable casserole with grilled cheese on top... More

On my last night in Istanbul before heading to Den Haag, I was walking around the old historic part of Istanbul and found the café. After four Efes beers and good conversations with the co-owners of the establishment, I would recommend the restaurant/café to all my fellow travelers.

very nice people there, we went on a friend's recommendation and we didn't regret it; very good food, they prepare it quickly, and if you are a cat lover, they have a lot of them! :)

We took advantage of the offers and enjoyed free hummus, apple tea and baklava with our meal of Manti (Turkish ravioli). It was freezing out but we were seated under a heater and given blankets too. If there weren't so many restaurants to try, we would return.

I chose the place based on the tripadvisor reviews and it was exactly what had been promised - good, well-priced, friendly service and really pleasant setting. I would recommend Siva for everybody looking for a good lamb dish.

Found this place near my hotel. Comfy seats on the street front and a great place to have a beer or shisha and watch the world go by. Was also very entertained watching the waiters greet walkers by in half a dozen languages.

And great value. The food and atmosphere were so nice, we came back here three nights in a row! Try the Sultan's chicken and the baklavah.
