We enjoyed Doy Doy's food, however the crowded terrace made it challenging to get served and hear ourselves think.

I went to this place on the very first day of my Istanbul trip. It was amazing that our tour guide brought us here for dinner. The moment you stepped into the restaurant, the smell of bread lingers around. FRESH HOT BREAD!! We ate it with some dhal like curry and some kebabs. It was awesome. woo!! If I were... More

We looked up the restaurant on Trip Advisor and realised it was a short walk from our hotel in Istanbul. We dined at their cosy little terrace on the top floor with amazing views of the Blue Mosque. Over our vacation we were familiar with the choices on most menus and tried the grilled eggplant and tomatoes which had a... More

Excellent views from the top floor terrace, pashminas available at your request as it gets cold and windy. Great bread, mezzes and kebab, nice service. We went there twice, 50 Turkish lira dinner for two people. Loved it and will return if ever back in Istambul.

We were in Istanbul a week and finally went here on our last night. And I gotta say we left our best meal till last. The four of us shared three dishes, including the chicken casserole, Doy Doy mixed kebab and the pistachio chicken kebabs, they were all great we were full at the end of it and the price... More

In this multi level restaurant, I almost ate on the level below the roof top dining area. I was told there was a great view of the Blue Mosque from the top floor and there was but there was an even better one from the rooftop! Food is cooked and brought to your table by, what appeared to be family... More

As this restaurant was close to your apartment, we dined there every day. Everything was very tasty. My favourite - "mercimek corbası" (lentil soup).

This is a great affordable restaurant right near the heart of the old city. If it looks empty downstairs, never fear, everyone is eating up on the roof. I also saw their delivery motor bike all over the place so it must be a local find as well. The prices are great.

Doy Doy Restaurant was a place to discover a little more about traditional Turkish food. Located in the centre of touristic district Sultanahmet it provides excellent view for the Blue Mosque from its terrace.The staff were really friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and at good price. I would highly recommend that place!
