Yeniköy (Turkish: Yeniköy, "New Village"), sometimes also referred to as Yeni Kioi, is a neighbourhood in the Sarıyer district of Istanbul, Turkey. It is located on the European shores of the Bosphorus strait, between the neighbourhoods of İstinye and Tarabya.

Yeniköy is one of the prominent quarters of Istanbul, and is home to the city's wealthy figures.[1] The quarter also has some of the finest Ottoman era waterfront houses (yalı) and seafood restaurants in Istanbul, on the Bosphorus shore.

The historic Köybaşı Caddesi (Köybaşı Avenue) is one of the loveliest streets in Istanbul. It has two long lines of platanus trees on both flanks. As such, it resembles Dolmabahçe Caddesi near Dolmabahçe Palace, and Çırağan Caddesi near Çırağan Palace, which are located further south on the European shoreline of the Bosphorus strait, in the Beşiktaş district.
