Çiya Restaurant İstanbul

İstanbul - Where to eat

Çiya Kebap was established in 1987 in Kadýköy as a modest restaurant of kebap, lahmacun and pide.

Çiya began to be perceived as a place to discover new tastes by its guests. Apart from kebap and lahmacun, different regional dishes began to be served, although very rarely at the start. As people showed more interest in those dishes, more of them were added to the menu and Musa Daðdeviren kept on testing new recipes all the time. Actually, those tests were emerging out of his uncontrollable interest and enthusiasm in cooking, culture and history of food.

After the big success of these testings, a new and different restaurant was on its way to be founded. In 1998, 11 years after the establishment of Çiya, a new restaurant called Çiya Sofrasý was opened in the same street. The new place began serving traditional Anatolian dishes which were about to be forgotton even in their original regions. Çiya Sofrasý introduced a “cuisine of culture” where long lost recipes and old cultures were brought to our time. Even though Çiya Sofrasý defines itself as a restaurant of “Southeastern and East Mediterranean Cuisine”, it is actually a reflection of a vast geography from Anatolia to Mesopotamia and the variety of culturally prosperous people that have existed on that land. Here, all the Azerbaijani, Georgian, Turkish, Arabian, Armenian, Ottoman, Syrian, Seldjukian and Jewish dishes are prepared according to the original customs and believes.
