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.

Mainly a place for business lunches, or a mid shopping break....but mine was for a convenient business dinner post a long office day. Efficient service, in a modern shopping centre with brands that disorientate you - are you really in Istanbul with M&S, Carluccios, Harvey Nicholls. So it claims to offer traditional turkish cuisine, but if you want that, would... More

Located in a huge and trendy shopping mall, full of restaurants, in a middle of business district Konyali is an excellent place for a business lunch serving traditional and well repaired Turkish food. Rather on a chic end -which is consistent with prices- it clearly caters to numerous investment bankers, lawyers and other professionals filling surrounding buildings. We had traditional... More
