Istanbul Restaurants



Sofyalı 9

Sofyalı 9 Review

With Greek music playing in the background, photographs of old Istanbul on the walls, and friendly, laid-back surroundings on a lively backstreet in Beyoğlu's Asmalımescit area, the classic meyhane food and quaint atmosphere here are well above average. Mezes, whether from the regular menu or the daily specials, are excellent; standouts include cubes of fried eggplant in a yogurt and tahini sauce and "Circassian chicken," a spread made with chicken and ground walnuts. A limited menu is served during lunch on weekdays.
