Very nice resturant with some good food and service, but a bit expensive - was our most expensive meal of the trip! On what can only be described as the 'tourist food strip' we decided to give it a go They push the meze hard at the start and it was fine - not the best one we had but... More

Good Quality-price and very nice staff! Typical plates and very well prepared. The location is also very good, near to the main monuments in Sultanahmet

Although I've eaten in many good and very good restaurants, this is one of my favourites. Yes, they have a wonderful choice of Turkish dishes, but I like their fish most. It's fresh and well prepared. I love their seabass in salt. Sure it's a little more money as the regular stuff, but it is worth the extra. And the... More

All the meal we had was authentic Turkish and very tasty. Our bill came around 100 Lira. Service & staff was very nice. We went around 8 it was... More

Good food, delicious Turkish dishes; a pity that one of the waiters was a bit too pushy and came too close while we were enjoying our meal.

With this being my seventh vist to Istanbul, we stubbled upon this little gem of a restaurant. After eating here for dinner, I wished that I had found this restaurant sooner. The food, service and atmosphere was simply the best!! Since the winter is the quiet time in Istanbul, we had time to talk with the waiters. All of them... More

When passing by they told me about their stuffed chicken dish. I had been eating one before once in Istanbul. But this mix of flavours was amazing. Together with the friendly service and affordable price this is a must.

We ate here one night during a four day stay in Istanbul. It was one of those occasions where we walked through a street we hadn't been before and were regaled by a number of energetic invitations to eat at the numerous restaurants. I'm not quite sure why we decided on the Kayici but it turned out to be an... More
