I visited this place after reading many positive reviews on tripadvisor. Good place, food is fresh, kofte was prepared very good. Recommended

If you visit the Sultanahmet district, you won't miss this place. Always full of people and waiting line. The reason I gave it three stars is I think the place is overrated. The food is good but not that good to wait such long time.

My god! - we have heard about this place, but didn't realize how close we were. After Hagia Sophia, we went there for lunch. Yum Yum! Best meatballs ever, accompanied with a lovely salad, huge bread rolls and chips. Although it is like a dinner...More

For being an almost full time vegetarian, I did enjoy the köfte at this place. Don't miss this place while strolling around in Sultanhamet. I ate their twice and the place was super busy both times, while the restaurants around were quite empty.

Food was not as delicious as I expected. Service was better even the restaurant was packed. If I am not mistaken, they put service charge which is not common in Turkey.

This place was recommended to us by a Turkish lady Sinem, who lives in Belgium and runs Unico, a great place in Brussels. Simple interior but clean and most important good and honest Turkish food which is also confirmed by the many Turkish customers.

In fact the meat there is very good but i dont see it as one of the best 20 restaurants in istanbul. The food there (kabab) is delicious but there are lots of other places much better.

Sultanahmet Koftecisi has a reputation with his superior quality meatballs and "piyaz". Is't nice for lunch and dinner. Quick service and cheap. Don't forget to order an "ayran" too.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
