Amazing meal here. A wide variety of choice (perhaps too much??) and was very pleased with the kebabs and mixed mezze platter. Great service and nice setting. Would definitely return.

Our tour guide took us to Khorasani for lunch and we are very glad that she did. They specialise in kebabs - i had a mixed platter whilst my wife had chicken kebab and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Prices were pretty good and service was good as well.

Actually... we can't take credit for finding this place...it was recommended by the concierge at Levni. Khorasani was our favorite place that we ate in Istanbul. We got the pistachio kebab and some meze and it was delicious. We almost came here twice it was so good.

On recommendation of a local person we trust, we decided to try this restaurant. It was a super experience. Nice location, good pleasant service and very good food. If I visit Istanbul again, I will guaranteed visit this restaurant again.

Highly recommended. My second visit in 2 days. I went to the top rated Trip Advisor restaurant and was really disappointed. Khorsasani, you will be pleased with service, hospitality, and most important quality of food at the same price as everything else. It's across from the Sura Hotel, 5 star. Lamb kabab yesterday and sea bass today, side of risotto... More

Came here for lunch after exploring the Blue Mosque and the Sofia Hagia. It was recommended by our concierge. The Menu is quite elaborate but mostly local/Mediterranean Cuisine. We ordered mostly Mezze and a few Kebabs. Food was very fresh and tasty. The only disappointment was a vegetarian noodle dish. The place is not cheap but not very very expensive.... More

We had a lovely dinner here. We tried to order some traditional food and the waiter said "trust me". It was excellent.

Lovely little resturant located just off the main street in Sultanhamet amongst many other eating places. Walked up the small street, looking at the various menus and settled on this place. Food is Devine although quite pricey and they seem to cram in many tables. Our service was prompt although the waiters were a little cold in their demeanour. This... More

We had several meals here during our stay - consistently delicious food and great service. The staff, especially Orhan, were really friendly and interesting to talk to. I can understand why it was packed by about 8 pm every night.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
