Food mostly very good but portions small. The vegetarian dolma were a high point but tiny portions. I grilled fish was excellent, artichoke was overcooked and mushy,salad was fresh but came with no seasoning or dressing of any kind. Service was good. They have homemade "serbet" fruit drinks. The rose hips was my favorite.

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.

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

Staying in Sisli

Neighborhood Profile
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
