“Probably the best site in Istanbul”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Be sure to visit the Harem - well worth the extra admission. Allow 3-4 hours. There is a lot to cover and many exhibits

“Pricey... But unique”
Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

If you visit Istanbul, you can't miss the Topkapi palace and Konyali is the only place available for food and drinks... But you'll be happy to pay 80 lira for just kebab&drink, plus the incredible view on 2 continents !!!

“Touristy but right at the palace”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This is a very popular eatery at Topkapi Palace, we reserved a table which was fortunate as the restaurant was full. The food was nice and although the service was a little slow, the wait staff were friendly. There was a huge queue to use the ladies bathroom. Eating here enabled us to have a full day exploring the palace and a chance to rest our aching feet.

“Good food and a wonderful view.”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

We ate in the Restaurant...the food was good. Excellent lamb chops and a delicious rice pudding Service discreetly efficient, when I dropped sauce on my shirt front ( ! ) a waiter appeared silently and proffered a wet wipe...
The views are superb, across the Bosphorus to hills shimmering in a heat haze.
Recommended.

“Eat Like A Sultan”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

When you are at Topkapi Palace make sure you eat at the Konyali,

Get the a la cart menu as its far better than the buffet. There is no alcohol here but that's no problem get the Ayran it goes great with the kababs.

The amazing views are a great way to enjoy a lazy lunch.

Finish it all off with a Turkish desert & a Turkish coffee.

Enjoy.
