Good local cuisine with lots of option to select and don't forget to try some ayran(Yogurt drink). Good value for money, cozy & friendly environment.
Favorite Dish: Tavuk çorba with Kosh kosh (Chicken Soup with Lentel)
Roast Tavuk (Chicken)
Mouth watering "Helva and Ceviz Baklawa"
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 :(
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.
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
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.
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
Favorite Dish: Doy Doy mýxed grýll
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
I sort of the ink most of the reviews are a bit exaggrated. U can search for more authentic and interetesting places. The food was nothing spectucalar and bit overpriced ( but not much ).
I advise going around a bit more to get more alternatives. Best would be to checkout where the local salesmen eat...
I went to this restaurant the first time I went to Istambul and I remember it like a crowded place, with a nice terrace where you can enjoy a good landscape (the blue mosque, I think to remember) and normal/good food.
Doy-Doy is geared more toward tourists than Sukru Nun Yeri, but it was still excellent. It is also a much, much bigger restaurant, with several floors. We chose to dine on the roof both time we visited because of the fantastic view. Located right in the shadow of the Blue Mosque, it's hard to imagine anywhere else in the city with a much better view of the Marmara Sea and the Blue Mosque than this.
Favorite Dish: Everything we tried was great. Turkish pizza was a new one to me, and I have to say I enjoyed it quite a bit.
