Good fusion food in an upscale mall

Food mostly very good but portions small. The vegetarian dolma were a high point but tiny portions.

After I visited the Topkapı palace, we had lunch at Konyaaltı Kanyon, which was overlooking the İstanbul Bosphorus. The meals are very quality and the atmosphere is fantastic. All in all, everything was fine.

great authentic, Turkish cuisine. Tried the lamb kebab that comes with grilled aubergines and zucchini as well as their truly amazing walnut baklava and rice pudding (Sütlaç). it was nice that they had an outdoors area to enjoy the wonderful September breeze. service was very friendly and good

We visited this reastaurant just before a movie at Kanyon Shopping Center. The area is wide open on the outside part of the mall. You can breathe full air since you are in the open. I got cacik with green peppers (cold yoghurt soup), Turkish style. Very Successful. Then I got 'Hunkar Begendi' which means 'the Sultan liked it' !... More

The doner kebab was excellent.. So was the vine leaves with cherries! In fact, everything we ordered was excellent! I highly recommend this place for lovers of Turkish cuisine.

Konyali has been established at the end of 1800's. I was a customer at Sirkeci, in their Milliyet newspaper restaurant, Topkapi Palace and Kanyon. Design and interiors improved, so are stoneware and glassware, and also little surprizes such as sherbet they offer before your coffee however the food is very ordinary. Tradition is there.but you certainly expect more after 100... More

We went for diner with local friends. We enjoyed very much the ottoman cuisine served in this restaurant. Starters, Grilled Meat, chicken, Baklava, every plate was tasty and with high quality. The desert was extremely good (Ishmael saraya). The trip from SultanAhmet was long by public transport (tramway+funicular+underground). The way back much better by taxi (30 TL). Definitely, I would... More

Konyali serves traditional Ottoman cuisine in a very traditional context. The food is excellent, service is high quality. Good preference for business lunches, a bit overwhelming for a shopping break.
