This restaurant was recommended by Nural (Levni Hotel) on the night we arrived into Istanbul as our plane was late and our original restaurant reservation was well gone. Normally I am a bit wary of hotel recommendations, however Nural assured us this restaurant was excellent, so off we went. (In... read more

On this trip, I visited both Greece and Turkey and this was by far the best culinary experience. It is a restaurant/café located in a labyrinth of streets which are charming, beautiful, clean and everything on the menu is top notch. This is a treat that you're not likely to forget.

My hotel recommended two restaurants on my first night there, with the qualification that the other one was better. After visiting this one I could see why. The restaurant was full on the night I visited, and the front of house woman could not find my reservation made earlier that day. Fortunately, the waiter who had taken the reservation remembered...

Four season(5つ星ホテル)のconciergeに紹介されて行きました。ここのケバブはトルコで食べたケバブの中で一番おいしかったです。またお店の人たちのサービスもしっかり行き届いていますし、とても親切でした。かなりきちんとフロアマネジメントをされている印象。私たちは5日間のイスタンブール滞在でしたが、あまりにもおいしかったのでランチ・ディナー合わせて計4回も行ってしまいました。 中でもおすすめのメニューは、Mix Kebabです。鶏肉、牛肉、仔羊肉、ひき肉ハンバーグに加え、ピデやラマジュンもついてきて、かなり満足できるボリュームです。とくにここのKunefeはピスタチオが入っていてジューシーでほっぺたが落ちるおいしさです。またMeseも充実しており、こちらは盛り合わせもいいですが、単品でオリジナルなMeseを頼むのがおすすめです。 またイスタンブールに行ったら、必ず行きたいレストランです。 The concierge of the Four season hotel, 5 star hotel, reccomended us this restaurant. This Kebab is the best in Turkey. The service is organized well and staffs are very kind and gentle. I think there is a good floor management. Thank you Yohan ! We stayed at Istanbul for 5 days, but we went... More

While visiting Istanbul, we dined at the Khorasani Restaurant twice. It was recommended by the staff at the Ambassador Hotel. The food was so delicious, we ate there again during our stay. The food was excellent and also the service! A shout out to Ridvan who was our waiter on both occasions and was wonderful.

We have been to this restaurant several times during our stay in Istanbul. We also tried some other at Tripadvisor highly ranked ones but none of them was as good as Khorasani. As we are vegetarians and the turkish cuisine is quite meat-based we ordered mixed mezzes from the tray, which were all vegetarian and tasted fantastically! We tried a... More

This place was known to me from previous visits and I remembered some very well prepared kebabs I had eaten here. I usually sat outside, but when I went there recently at about 9.30 pm for a late bite on a cool rainy evening, I chose a table inside close to the kitchen. The decor is modern and the whole...

Spent a great night here with some friends. Tried to get in our first night in Istanbul but it was heaving so booked for another night luckily. Bread was heavenly and selection of starters delicious. Huge range of great looking steaks. Friendly staff. Top notch.

Found this restaurant down a side street full of restaurants just off the main square. They all looked promising but we were cold and they had a big open cooking area blasting out heat. A wide menu, we can recommend the kebabs. Went back for lunch on our final day.
