You would be foolish to miss an opportunity to eat here. There is "Manti" in other places of Istanbul, but it's usually just boiled pasta with yogurt sauce. At this place they serve you these wonderful pasta pieces filled with succulent lamb and topped with a yogurt sauce that has been haunting me since I left Istanbul.

Definitely the best mantı of Istanbul. Try it with red pepper, dried mint and butter sauce. You can also try "Cig borek" with meat. For a complete meal you pay 10 euro maximum.

After living in Istanbul and numerous visits back...I never miss a chance to eat at Sayli Manti. They offer a limited but specialized menu. The Manti I s homemade and so delicious you will be anticipating your next visit! You must order the Manti with garlic and pastry with a little meat inside. You will not be disappointed!

I was curios of trying Manti so i decised to try them in a place that was trending on Foursquare. then, i ended up in this place. it is clean, not fancy, but the stuff is nice. Even though I discoverd Manti are not my favourite turkish plate, these handmade Manti were awesome. Approved

Eaten at at least 50 manti places, most of which, like this, do not stand out in the crowd. Garlic flavor was nice in the yogurt sauce, but piped in muzak and namless pictures of old people on the wall did nothing to help the dreary atmosphere of the stark white painted storefront.
