Budget restaurant with good taste

Doy Doy is very near to Blue Mosque. My friend and me grabbed kebab rolls there. It was really cheap and tasty. Service is good. Atmosphere was nice. You can feel the good smell and taste of kebab there. Really recommendable!

Ate there two times on our 4 day trip to Istanbul. Really delicious food at very reasonable prices. We ordered the Doy Doy mixed kebab which was for 2 people. It had 4 meats(lamb kebab, adana kebab, chicken, and lamb chop) with rice, vegtables, yogurt, and pita bread. Food was excellent and the service is great. All of the waiters... More

The food was so tasty and the prices were so reasonable. I would recommend the shish kebab. It was awesome! The orange juice is freshly squeezed on the spot and they can mix it with pomegranite juice, if you request! Two of us ate for only 50 liras! Doesn't have the best views, but makes up for it in service... More

This was such a welcome change from the typical touristy establishments that Sultanahmet is brimming with. Awesome value for money, and we got free tea on one occasion (we ate here 3-4 times through the course of our stay). Try the mixed appetiser platter, and the kebabs and pide are great too. They have free wifi, and serve hot naan... More

Make sure to sit on the roof terrace and enjoy the floor to ceiling view of the blue mosque. The pizza are a great midday snack and reasonably priced.

We were told to go to the terrace, nice view! Well, all you can see from there is roof tops, rubbish backyards, stray cats running around. The service was basic, a young boy with black under his fingernails and a tshirt shiny from dirt took our order. He was polite but had no formal training, it was obvious. The order... More

Food is excellent! Decor is stark. Service was functional. The only other people dining on the top floor left and the heat - one single electric bar heater - was switched off. I asked the waiter to turn the heat back on. He told me they were closed! I recommend this restaurant but not until warm temperatures have returned.

I was really looking forward to this restaurant because I read such goid reviews on Wikitravel. Under 10TL, beautiful view of the terrace, good food, it said. So I insisted to come here even though we saw so many cute restaurants on the way. First of all, the rooftop was closed because of the wind, so there was no view.... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
