Çiya Sofrası is a worker's restaurants, located in the southern part of the of the main street of Kadıköy neighborhood market.
There are actually 3 restaurants called Ciya and they all sit on the same little street. Each one specializes in a different Turkish dish- koptah, kebab or stews. If you sit in one sofrası, you can order dishes from the other two, which specialize in the kebab, with over 40 types!
The restaurant has a great selection of dishes, but here they specialize in wonderful dishes before all. Among them are prominent meat dishes such as stuffed lamb, shoshabrak, lamb cooked in yogurt and the like. Of course there is a magnificent series here and it is made of exquisite salads, from the finest Turkish cuisine.
