Doy Doy Restaurant: Fill up, fill up!
Great spot around the corner from the Blue Mosque with great views from the terrace of the same. Some building work going on next door but still worth a pit stop here at lunch time for a relaxed atmosphere
Doy doy: Excellent food and view
Apparently doy doy means "fill up" in Turkish. Well, they really feed you, and at a reasonable price that you won't always find in Sultanahmet.
The restaurant is just right behind the Blue Mosque. (see picture) We were there on a beautiful sunny day, and the view of the Blue Mosque and the sea were just spectacular.
The food was good -- very well-done Turkish fare. We ordered a doy doy special, with pide (Turkish pizza), different sorts of kebab, and a lamb stew. Everything was delicious. Including multiple soft drinks, the lunch was about $11 per person. Thumbs up!
My friend got addicted to the Cappy vişne suyu (sour cherry juice) while there. You might want to give it a try also!
Favorite Dish: Tender kebabs, pide (Turkish pizza), stews, etc.
Doy Doy: Terrace dining Sultanahmet
We asked at the hotel where to get a good Turkish meal and Doy Doy was his recommendation, he said that it was a local place, not a tourist place. For lunch there were only a couple of other tables filled on the terrace, a large group of Japanese tourists and another couple that was clearly not Turkish. Downstairs I think there were a few more people. To get to the terrace you have to climb several flights of stairs, terrace restaurants are very popular in Istanbul and usually they are multi story restaurants with the top floor being a terrace.
Favorite Dish: I ordered the Doy Doy special, a kebab with a little tomato sauce, yogurt, lettuce and slices of tomato. The grilled meat was good but I'm not a fan of the tortilla style wrap on this kind of kebab which is popular in Istanbul, I've never seen it before, all of the other kebabs I've eaten have been on pita or another type of bread. David ordered a pide, the Turkish version of pizza, with ground meat and cheese, it was good. We split a rice pudding for dessert for 5tl, a little cheaper than my favorite pudding shop. The total was 39tl with one drink each.
Doy Doy Restaurant: Excellent, great prices, friendly service !!!!
Located near the Blue Mosque we stumbled into this place, even though only one or two people spoke a little English we were presented with English menu's with pictures on it.... The price were excellent, and the portions great. We ordered a house specialty plate and it brought everything we wanted, kehbabs, chicken, lamb, rice and flat bread for $13 lira. The service was friendly even though the language barrier was a small issue....but we got a great experience. No liquor is served so the international word of coca-cola was understood really well !!!!! Highly recommend it !!!!!
Favorite Dish: It is winter now in Istanbul so the roof top terrace was closed :(

Doy Doy: Fantastic food !
The restaurant is clean and has friendly waiters who seemed always eager to please.
The menus were straight forward with pictures of all foods and waiters would explain when needed on particular dishes.
There were Veggie and meat options available. The prices were great and the food excellent. Tasty and wholesome.
We stayed 5 days and ate there every evening - the kids loved it.
The locals at the mosques would not recommend many places to us but highly recommended the Doy Doy and it didn't serve alcohol.
Overall 10/10 !!!
Favorite Dish: The kebab dishes and the Turkish pizzza. Hmmmmm.

Doy doy: Pass , don't stop
When you enter doy doy for the first time you think "must be very good" looking at the staff preparing vegetables!
I had a horrible vegetarian dinner, never again.There are many good restaurants in Istanbul.
Favorite Dish: None

Very local place with the atmosphere to accompany it. When i went there was a wedding going on upstairs. Thats the type of place this is. Good prices and very tasty. I only wish my plate had been bigger because I have a lumberjack appetite
