I came here for dinner, and was definitely not disappointed! Everything was so fresh and delicious. The spices they use in their kabobs are to die for. I tried the Turkish pizza, a variety meat plate, and musaka. It reminded me slightly of Uzbek food. Everything was mouth-watering tasty. Definitely check this place out if you get a chance!

This restaurant was shown to me and my girlfriend by our guide who lives in Istanbul so it's no fluke we dine in here. It is on Sultanahmet square, and by far looks most modern by interior. However, meals are prepared in a traditional way with dishes that looks like they are from the old age. I ordered chicken with... More

During my stay in Istanbul, I hired a local personal guide to see the Old Sultanahmet. She took me to this restaurant. Great Turkish food and atmosphere. I met the owner who gave me his business card. Glad he did or I wouldn't have remembered the restaurant and the great food I had there. We sat outside and it was... More

During our 10-day trip in Istanbul Khorasani must have been one of our best food experiences. The menu offers a very large selection of Turkish specialties from kebab to grilled fish. We started with a few mezze which were accompanied by their delicious bread served hot after being baked on the spot (bread looks like an inflated balloon). We then... More

This place was recommend by the hotel I was staying at. I was reluctant when I saw the touristy street it was on but I went in anyway and was pleasantly surprised. The menu is vast and to make a choice was hard as so many tasty things. Good atmosphere, excellent service and even better food that was at a... More

This was the 3rd time I have dined here with different sets of friends over the last 3 month and the place never disappoints. Despite being located in what seems to be a touristy street full of suspiciously ripp-offy restaurants and hotels, Khorasani offers great value for money. It is not a cheap place, prices are similar to Western European... More

My partner and I went here and found that the food is rather pricey, though the environment is nice. I had a chicken dish that arrived bubbling on a cast iron dish. It was a little bit too salty and the rice portion that came with it was very small. Otherwise it was perfectly tasty! The real letdown was my... More

We had lunch and dinner here during our stay in Istanbul and really liked it. The food is a bit on the expensive side but very well prepared and tasty. Great service too.
