Great place for Turkish food

Went to the restaurant on a Friday after work. Staff were welcoming and provided a great service.. Dips were great and bread tastes fresh and warm. Ordered the mixed grill for two, which was really filling. Salad was really fresh and the meat tasted great.

Amazing coffee, great service with a smile. We have order Turkish transitional breakfast, I think I am just not that big fan of Turkish food, but it seems good if you love to try something different.

Part of the South Melbourne market parade of restaurants on Cecil St., Koy is definitely worth a visit if you love tasty Turkish cuisine. We enjoyed a selection of tapas, which included lamb, chicken and beef kofte. They have a great selection of wine as well. The restaurant catered for couples as well as big groups of people. Good value... More

This is great casual restaurant. We ordered tapas as we felt we needed it. The gozleme is ordered from where it is cooked at the street food stall - this needs to be paid for with cash. The other dishes we had were ordered off the menu. We particularly enjoyed the octopus. Definitely worth a visit.

Upon my first experience at the South Melbourne Market I was very excited by the 'street food' stalls. I did not sit in the restaurant, but sat outside near the Gozleme stall and enjoyed every bite. Considering the fast cooking process I was very impressed with the presentation of placing the Gozleme on a board rather than just on a... More

I've now been here twice and I am very very impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. The menu is full of interesting and delicious options, the plates are colourful and each one had their own unique flavour. One of the times I was with a group and we shared several mezzes and had our own dishes as... More

We booked for banquet night. 7 courses for $35. The food was disappointing but should have expected that for the price. I would rather pay more and get better dishes. The dips, croquettes and lamb dish were great.

I went with friends to Koy for dinner and we were not allowed in the restaurant as we had a seeing eye puppy in training. We were told that they would not allow any dogs into the restaurant even if we were actually visually impaired. Very disappointing, but we had a wonderful meal at Simply Spanish instead.
