Bad food and expensive prices. - Edit

We were completely diasappointed. The food wasn't tasty at all, but the prices really high for Istanbul. We didn't enjoy eating here and I could have cooked any dish we had way better. Any other restaurant we had during our trip was far above Dubb!

Pros: Interior Design

Cons: Food is disappointing and tasteless, Service slow, Expensive!

what is vegan, what is not - Edit

I was excited to come here.
But after asking the waited what was without dariy and what was not, he seemed very confident.
But when i got my food - i think it was kofta or korma it seemed to ahve paneer in the balls. Even though i did ask the waiter. He stated it was rice... it wasnt rice...

So, i guess if you order something simple that you know would be vegan dahl or something then its safe.

Very expensive for a meal by my standards and the flavours seem to be toned done, not very spicy or tasty. :(

Pros: some vegetarian food

Cons: what is vegan!?, expensive

Very good and not neccesarily expensive - Edit

I went to Dubb Indian yesterday for dinner, and so far for me this is the best place for a vegan to go in Istanbul (for a dinner, there's plenty of snack/sandwich shops). I had chana masala with naan bread and got more than full. Tasty too, and the perfect amount of curry being used. Also very good looking food and restaurant, and the staff the friendliest i've encountered so far.
Me and my girlfriend got super full for 69 TL, the price including the biggest beers the place could offer, two main courses and naan bread - we chose not to have rice with it simply because there was so much food in the main course itself.

Only downside is the price. Compared to other Istanbul restaurants, this is not cheap. You can clearly see that this place is a little fancier than your average tourist restaurant, both menu-wise and because of the location. That being said i'd gladly pay a lot for good food, especially in a city where vegan food sucks so bad...

Go for it, and bring your rich parents/uncle/lover ;-)

Spicy food in Istanbul - Edit

Traditional and everyday Turkish food is not really very spicy, which might seems a little strange given the popular image of bustling bazaars.

Anyway, spend enough time in the city and you may be starting to miss something with a little bit more of a kick. Dubb does a pretty good job in this regard - the dishes are well made and full of spicy flavour.

Vegetarians will appreciate the layout of the menu, as well as a dedicated Veg. section for mains and a set Veg. menu option, most of the starters etc. are also veg and marked as such. A little more detail here though would be beneficial for vegans and non-egg eaters.

The prices are high compared to other places, it's unavoidable since it's Istanbul and anything "ethnic" is something of a novelty, however the servings are very generous so it's not that bad really. You'll find that a single dish of rice is easily enough for two people.

The view from the top floor is superb, so it's worth hiking up the 4 or 5 flights of stairs (just hope there's a free table when you get there!).

Pros: Spices!, Extensive veg. menu, Location/View from terrace

Cons: Price, Not entirely veg., Vegan/egg etc. menu status not described

Beautiful Indian Restaurant. - Edit

This restaurant is a charming restaurant with real attention to detail. The fourth floor has a wonderful night view of old Istanbul. It is a stone's throw from the main tourist attractions.
I have a gluten allergy and the menu explains which flours are used in each dish. I do not eat dairy but I'm not strictly vegan-the dishes suited me.
Oh, and the food is absolutely delicious!

Pros: Delicious food, clear menus, good service

Cons: steep stairs
