A small Indian Cuisine restuarant with a limited menu. Though not impressed with the decor and size of the place the food was excellent and delicious. Freshly cooked curry and Indian Biryani and The Naan (bread) was well prepared. Very closely situated near The Blue Mosque. Excellent service.

For those who are keen on Indian/sub continent food. The food is alright for the place, though a bit too expensive. Very few from the staff can understand what one actually wants! Having said that as I have said in the begining itself, the food is alright, especially the curry. Avoid the biryani/rice items.

While wandering the back streets behind the Blue Mosque and towards the Bosporus we happened upon this unpretentious gem. The first business of our 4 day visit to Istanbul that did not give an aggressive sales pitch. Very good start because we were tired of sales people in our face as we walked the streets of the Sultan Ahmed. Once... More

Dubb restaurant is very near to Sultan Ahamed and Al Sofya. The restaurant serves authentic Indian food and one gets a feel as if you are in India. All dishes served are really very tasty. Veg Biryani, chicken tikka and roti are really good and tasty.

We being Indians, knew about the taste of Indian dishes and it was quite fine the dishes they prepared - but it is a no-frills attached - basic restaurant.

Hidden away in the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul is this beautiful restaurant. More often than not a place that serves multiple cuisines can be hit and miss,not Dubb. The Indian is authentic and amazing, as was the Chinese. If you are looking for a reasonably cheap meal, in lovely surroundings (a converted house at the end of a street in... More

We stayed at Sumengen Hotel in Istanbul which is right next door to this restaurant. We decided to dine here one evening for my mum's birthday. The food was delicious, I ordered a steak, my sister ordered Chinese, my dad ordered Indian and my mum ordered Turkish so we all had a variety. My steak was cooked to perfection, and... More

Relaxing homely atmosphere, their whole team was very polite, welcoming and efficient. Loved all the dishes we tried, we visited 3 times during our week long stay. Authentic home cooked taste, would highly recommend. Try the Fried Ice Cream.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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 retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
