Neighborhood: Karaköy
Cuisine: Turkish

Regarded by the locals as one of the top restaurants in Karakoy, Ciya Sofrasi has mastered the art of providing consistently great food for two decades. A non-tourist attraction and hidden gem, chef and owner Musa Dagdeviren has made this restaurant (he has two others) one of decadence and tradition by providing "dishes from a broad geographical space, spanning from Mesopotamia to the Ottomans, from the Balkans to the Caucasus and from Asia to the Arabian Peninsula." Located in the fish market district of Karakoy, stop in and eat like a king in this understated Turkish hot spot.

  Wonderful experience! Food was excellent and staff was very helpful, as we spoke no Turkish. Be sure to try a "sampler" plate in order to taste several dishes. Wish we had discovered the Karakoy area sooner, but, then we probably would not have eaten elsewhere......   Read More
