“Good food, excellent service”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We ate here on the last of our three nights in Istanbul and it was our best evening. The service was attentive and fun without being overbearing (the guy trying to entice you into the restaurant was funny and encouraging without being pushy) and the food was very good - especially the mixed mezze and the Sultan's chicken.

“A Gem”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

First night picked this cafe because we liked the welcome guy and the menu looked good and it was near our hotel. Fab inexpensive meal (Sultans chicken gorgeous), great service. Second night returned with our friend, a vegetarian, because we noticed several good meat free dishes. Third night no excuse - returned just because we loved it. lovely food-good wine and wonderful staff. The only holiday EVER where I have eaten at the same place three times. Nuff said.

“We don't usually go to the same restaurant more than once .......”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Myself and 3 girl friends visited Istanbul recently. We went to Siva the first night because of the good value, extensive menu. We were not disappointed, lovely food and excellent service and engaging staff. So good we did not see any reason to try anywhere else for our remaining 2 nights. Something we would never normally do. Thanks to all the staff especially Joseph
