The Doy Doy was recommended by the hotel as we arrived mid evening and only wanted something light. We were offered a table up on the terrace which was up 4 flights of stairs and as it was dark it was cool..ish but you couldn't...see much. We both ordered Turkish style pizza's which were very tasty, and diet pepsi and water. It came to about £7. We could have had a more substantial meal as there was plenty on offer from the menu but what we had was ideal at the time. Would have gone back for a main evening meal but we wanted to try a different restaurant each day.More

We were late arriving at the restaurant due to just arriving in the city. We had pizzas as didn't want a full meal as late evening .Hot and cold drinks are served, NO Alcohol as in the vicinity of the Mosques. Value for money. We...sat on the terrace which is up 4 flights of stairs no lift and i found them difficult as recovering from ankle surgeryMore

We were out strolling through the city and found Doy-Doy. Located off the hippodrome area and very near the blue mosque, Doy-Doy has a roof top terrace that is opened in the nice months, and a few levels in between. The food is prepared on...site, is quick, delicious and offers a great variety for any taste. We tried the lamb with pistachio powder it was an amazing and delicious meal. Would come back and eat here again.More

Been here with family, prices reasonable. Freshly cooked grilled food, nice Turkish pizza, would recommend this. Order what you want. Don't be pushed to order extras as they like to hike up the bill in most restaurants in Turkey. Bread was warm and fresh, give...it a try, not far from blue mosqueMore

We came here as part of a tour group and the place as great review and the food doesn't disappoint. It has 3 levels and terrace view would be a plus during the day. The food was authentic and it was established since 1989. They...serve great salads and kebabs and the menu are quite extensive and reasonably priced from 8 Lira for soup of the day to the most expensive Doy Doy mixed kebab at 85 Lira. Enjoy throughly their soup of the day, fresh baked bread and kebabs and salad. Would definitely come back for moreMore

It's really hard to find a place to eat for this price in Sultanahmed - this one is the best for its price. Also the view on the top terrace is nice.

Very reasonable prices. The food is as you would expect, it’s not going to wow you but fills you up and leaves you with a smile. Service was good too. We had the 2 person platter and we couldn’t finish it! There was a bit...of everything in there including Turkish pizza.More

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to

Hmm not sure. We had a friend with us of Asian descent and had no issues. The food was good and we went there 3 times and they were never rude to us or our friend.
