The waiters were so friendly, nothing but smiles, and so helpful with describing dishes. The food was absolutely incredible, no complaints here.

The food at Khorasani is simply incredible. We first discovered this place based off of a hotel's recommendation in 2012 and have been talking about it and revisiting Istanbul to eat there since then. Our usual order is the Mixed Kebab for two people which includes generous portions of lamb chops, beef loin, chicken, doner kebabs, and Turkish bread. The... More

This is a seriously touristy place. Walking up and down Ticarethane Sokak, we asked ourselves why of all the restaurants, this was the busiest. Clearly - we thought - it must be because the food is so good. Clearly - we realized - it is because it lives off its own hype. It is recommended, so people go and then... More

A tourist restaurant, no question, but the food was pretty good and the service was friendly. We tried it second night on my first trip to Istanbul, and so I tried the mixed grill to see how it compared to what I would be used to in London. No fireworks, sadly – left me a little nonplussed. My partner had... More

Having researched and read various blogs and posts about places to eat in Istanbul, Khorasani was one of the top choices on my list of restaurants in Sultanahmet to try authentic Turkish kebabs and was the first restaurant my husband and I ate at on our trip. The restaurant is in a nondescript alley with lots of other restaurants, just... More

The food was good, tasty and well worth the trip after a recommendation by our amazing personal tour guide. I didn't give it it a 5 because they didn't have the appetizer we ordered and failed to tell us until 10 min after we ordered it. The service, though good, wasn't friendly and I waited a little before my husband... More

We were so pleased with this restaurant that during a six day stay in Istanbul, we chose to dine here twice. The staff was very welcoming, efficient, and friendly. The restaurant was very clean with relaxing atmosphere. The menu had extensive choices of excellent Turkish food. All appetizers were on display trays brought to the table to make the decision...
