Don't think you can sneak in with a coffee and get the view - oh no!! The space is roped off for diners and coffee drinkers get hemmed into a corner. We had a coffee in the corner (still great views) and then asked to have lunch. We were whisked through to a light breezy, canopied section that made me... More

I explored the Topkapi in Istanbul November 1999. and the Kalyani The Kolyani was excellent if expensive, but when the Turkish lire went to 500,000 = $1, no-one had the rates figured out. Dining on 'the Sultan's Feast' while overlooking the Bosporus, with Asia in easy sight... it was an unforgettable experience. The menu is printed in 6 languages (and... More

We dined at Konyali restaurant by chance and we do not regret the decision. We had visited the archaeological museum and were heading to the Topkapi Palace. It was almost lunch time and we were hungry. We had one of the best food in Istanbul here. Those who complain about the restaurant being expensive or pricey should first consider the... More

We went here after our tour of the Topkapi Palace. There were two sections that seemed to blend together - a cafeteria section and a seated section with servers. We apparently ended up in that section so chose to enjoy the service. They do a nice presentation, bringing the food to the table with covers and removing them all in... More

During our Topkapı palace visit we stopped by Konyalı Restaurant for lunch. I had 5 guests and we ordered one dish per person since they were more than filling one stomach each. Service was great as waiters were trying their best to satisfy their customers.Three tas kebabis with aubergine puree (Turkish Gulash), 1 Doner Kebab, 1 Tandır Kebab and one... More

We had lunch here. The service was ok and the food was decent but everything was overpriced. The view was very nice though.

Price of coffee is about 5 times more expensive compared with the rest of Istanbul. No price list shown. Ask price before ordering. We complained about the price and got a surly shrug of the shoulder.

This restaurant is attached to Topkapi Palace. There is an upscale section, which is preferable. The food is good but the view is great. Great place to rest from palace tour!
