Turkish

Come during the day and be immersed in the hustle and bustle of the South Melbourne market, sit down and indulge yourself with one of our breakfast dishes, brought to your table all the way from Turkey. Try some of our regional dishes such as the Izmir Kofte or our Ottoman inspired “Koy Breakfast” for you and a friend. As the evening arrives and the temperature drops, stay warm under our covered outdoor dining space or join us inside and heat up with a glass of Raki and some delicious meze dishes. Like all good things, our food is best when shared with friends or family.

    Food was very nice and service was great! Waitress was very attentive and friendly. We went on a Thursday and there were $10 Meze plates and $5 house wine. Very cheap dinner but so delicious and generous servings! Would definitely come back!

    We enjoyed the food at Koy. It was flavoursome and delicious. Unfortunately, we felt as though the serving sizes were quite small for the price you pay. We really enjoyed the entree we tried, so maybe next time would come back for a few small plates rather than the main meals.

    My partner and I went for the Wednesday Banquet night and it was great!! The banquet consisted of a delicious 7-course menu (for only $35) with great variety. I think my favourite was the octopus bruschetta, but my partner like the stewed meatballs. But all of them had their of flavour and was a great treat. The service was very quick, but it didn't feel like they wanted us out the door. Also, the ambiance was very comfortable and nice. Will definitely recommend this to anyone.

    Really enjoyed the meal. We had the special banquet (7 courses, only $35 p/p - what a bargain!) and there was more food than we could finish. Good variety and we didn't have to wait long for each course. Servers were attentive. We sat in the outdoor area but were still sheltered from the road, wind & cold. Will definitely come back again.

    The staff at Koy were exceptional and seem to have the art of friendly service and menu knowledge down to a fine art. It almost feels like it's run by a family as there's a relaxed happy atmosphere with attention to detail as though we were guests in a Turkish home.I loved that the menu was full of dishes that I'd never tasted before and each was quite exotic using interesting combinations of ingredients.A great night out with beautiful food, a lovely atmosphere and tremendous value.

    Had a wonderful experience on Sat!Menu was very tempting, I was in the mood to try different foods so we ordered around 6 smaller meals to share between 2. Our waiter from Turkey was fantastic! He interpreted the menu for us & made recommendations with enthusiasm & charm :)Our dishes did not disappoint - beautifully presented & flavoursome. Stand outs were croquettes & the Pastrami Kaday?f (which I'd never heard of but came recommended) dessert was lovely too!Thanks Koy! See you again!
