When the lock down due to covid was not there, this place was the worst of all the places I went in Istanbul. There I found cat hair in my food, and didn't receive any receipt of my payment in return. After the lockdown is...over, I will go to Istanbul again...Will I go to that dining again? NO, never!More

One of the best point in Istanbul you can have delicious hand made Turkish food. Whenever you visit you may find a warm welcoming and most importantly hygiene. Especially for visitors and expats a very cool dining point. Also if you need anescape from crowd...this is definitely right place.More

Excellent Turkish home-style cooking in this delightful, small, Notting Hill vibe restaurant. Just a few tables and really individual service.

Really good quality home cooked food, with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. We had the chicken and the aubergine (although menu changes) plus some cold mezze starters, everything was great! Service was outstanding and we felt so welcome and taken care of. Would highly recommend,...it’s worth the visit.More

We were desperately looking for a restaurant to eat nearby our apartment. We read about No:19 Dining and decided to give it a try. Firstly, we were surprised by the fact that there is no menu (mainly because we were on a budget). But then,...we were explained the concept : you pick whatever you want that is available on a table (mezze & main plates). The food is handmade and delicious! The prices were very reasonable (14 euros in total for us two).More

Having visited Istanbul many times and eaten in serval places this place is still my best. It's charming, welcoming, in a great area and the food is wonderful. I definitely had my best meals in Istanbul here. Delicious homestyle cooking at it's finest, with great...choices. Good vegan, veggie and meat options. Definitely, definitely recommend it to all, sent many friends there and they all loved it.More

We visited No 19 based on other reviews and I am so glad we did! The location is gorgeous and the food was just amazing. You basically get offered a range of dishes prepared that day and they are all magnificent. Home cooked, delicious and...all served with a smile. Out of all the many places we visited while in Istanbul, No. 19 was one of our favourite places. Such a great memory and I only wish we had something like that here in Australia.More

This restaurant is perfect for those who love simple food, cooked well. It is away from the main dining area in Karakoy but worth seeking out! Meat, vegan or vegetarian you will find a tasty choice along with excellent Turkish wine.

If I could rate between average and very good, I would choose “good” only. Food was pretty good, although not much variety or choice. And it’s not cheap. But the owner is nice and she has a very sweet dog. We’ve been numerous times and...would return for a home cooked meal, and nice people. But it’s not something I would rave about yet. They seem to have a lot of potential but something just isn’t hitting smack on. But worth a try for a nice night.More
