The owner was very friendly! Good food. And we even got big breads as compliments! As expected of Turkey. The restaurant was very beautiful and located at the heart of Sultanahmet, near to our apartment!

We went into this restaurant and were led to the second floor. The menu appeared fine - and the prices appeared low. Well, you get what you pay for. The appetizer platter was cold and lifeless - and appeared to have been in the refrigerator for several days. Most was tasteless - and the olives came from a can - which is a sin in a country like Turkey with some of the world's best olives. What was shocking is that having eaten perhaps two bites from a large platter - the waiter never asked if there was a problem with the food. One of us had a pizza - and the sauce had no taste and had almost no cheese. I had a mixed grill plate - which was so-so. Was nicely grilled - but not much taste. It took some time to get anyone to help us with the bill - perhaps that because staff were watching a DVD loudly on a laptop computer on the other side of the dining room. Avoid this restaurant.

Great food, wonderful service. We ate here several times and tried something different each time. Everything was great! We even went one night just for dessert. Prices were great too!!

Doy Doy is an excellent restaurant bc they serve good food for a reasonable price. We enjoyed the lentil soup, mezze, kasharli pide, eggplant vegetarian dish and our very favorite Ayran (yogurt drink). The guys there are nice and helpful. And they have free Wi-Fi. With multiple floors, there's always a table. We enjoyed sitting up top the most.

We rented an apartment in Istanbul for a couple weeks, settling in casually and enjoying this neighborhood. A couple blocks away is Doy Doy. We ate there a few times and sampled several of the meze plates and entres. The lights are bright and the atmosphere is just ok, but the service is good. The food is also very good and reasonably priced. No alcohol.

Locals also eat here. It's a good choice, and we always had leftovers for lunch!
