Respond to Review of Ciya Kebab
Review: I love Ciya!!! If I am over on the Asian side (it's in Kadikoy, one of the most beautiful and relaxing parts of the city) I almost always eat here. I also try to bring my guests here when I have friends/family visiting from abroad. The owner of Ciya, Musa, has painstakingly researched foods from different regions in Turkey, and you can get foods here you won't find elsewhere, unless you travel all of Turkey. They also cook seasonal specialties, like stuffed artichokes or stuffed zucchini blossoms in the spring. The restaurant has been reviewed in many top international food magazines and for good reason. The staff are very attentive and friendly, and its moderately priced, so there is no reason not to go! Ciya is a kebab place, and is not explicitly geared toward vegans and vegetarians, however, there are always lots of choices. They usually have some hot entrees to choose from, in addition to the salad bar. My favorite is the boiled bulgur balls, which you can have served with or without yogurt. The salad bar has a wide selection of salads to choose from. You choose what you want, and are charged by the weight. Ciya own several restaurants on the same street, and some of them serve alcohol and some don't. If you want to drink, make sure you go to the correct one. My advice to you!!! Take a boat over to Kadikoy (from Eminonu, Karakoy, or Besiktas) spend a day walking by the seaside and exploring the markets, and have a lovely dinner at Ciya!!!
