Çiya is THE place where I say "ok, let's go" always without hesitation. The menu is changing according to the season and almost every day. You can find there for everyone something. Mostly serving the south east and Antakya cuisine; but you can also eat kebab varieties or prepare yourself a meze plate only. The candied pumpkin with tahini is TOP!

Awesome selection of traditional foods
Good quality and value for money.
In addition to the Sofrasi menu you can order from the sister kebab restaurant across the walkway.

be it the "original" Ciya or be it the Kebab restaurant on the other side of the street (actually, there are two of them), they are the first places I visit when in Istanbul. When there in wintertime, try to slow cooked meat with quince, something really special! And the Kebab and the way they are presented to you and prepared at the table are just outstanding. And despite all the TV and press coverage, they are still down to earth when it comes to service and price.

This should not be missed on any trip to Istanbul. There is an amazing variety of mezes, all delicious, and the service is friendly, helpful and attentive.
