Today’s Zaman has a review of Kiva Han, a restaurant near the Galata Tower that tries to be a Beyoğlu version of Asian side favorite Çiya . It’s not a favorable review:
All in all, our experience at the new Galata Kiva Han was extremely disappointing, and on second thought, I should have kept walking down the road to Karaköy, leapt on the ferry to Kadıköy and headed to my favorite table at Çiya. Or settled for some lahmacun from the tiny shop on the way down. I had expected more.
