First encounter with Turkish cuisine and indeed one to remember

I went to this restaurant for my first meal in Istanbul and I fell in love! The food was lovely and the service was quick and courteous. It's location right behind the blue mosque is also perfect!

This is a fine, simple, neighborhood place that serves no-nonsense traditional fare. I thought it was very good.

Went here for lunch after reading the rough guide and it was near to our hotel. Friendly, efficient staff, very quick service and tasty food. Would only go for lunch, not for an evening out.

If you want to go to Doy Doy for the view, don't go in winter, the terrace is closed! The food is ok, staff very friendly. Price per meal ~ 15TL

Adana kebap and pide were excellent in economic price. A perfect place near the blue mosque when you are hungry
