First I will say that we went with our tour guide. Our service was exceptionally good. The servers were gracious and kept bringing extra things like little pizzas. Yum. I can't say how much was a result of our guide or just normal service but we were very pleased. They managed my husband's gluten allergy very well. We presented a... More

BEST food, BEST service...best venue outside of the rooftops we visited - unfortunately, it's hard to compete with a view of the Blue Mosque and Haghia Sofia. Still, we would choose Khorasani over all the restaurants we tried last week. Be sure to splurge on the traditional dessert described as being made with 'shredded wheat' - phenomenal.

The food here was delicious and it was great to see our meals being prepared on the open grill. The service was excellent but not intrusive and the surroundings were a relaxed environment in which to spend an evening after a very full day's sightseeing!

We made a mistake of ordering the lamb stews and goulash. The goulash was so full of cheese and had so much oil in it I couldn't eat more than 3/4 spoonfuls. I think this restaurant is well known for its kebabs ( we didn't have any), so I would advice to stick to the kebabs. They did do nice... More

We visited the restaurant after checking a review on youtube, it was a bit not easy to locate as we asked some guy who worked in a shop right next to metro stop at sultanahmet and he gave us incorrect information but I remembered the location from a map I saw on Google. And it was down the alley a... More

It was a little hard to find down a side street off of the Divanyolu. We used a map application on the iPhone to find it. The place is nice and contemporary with indoor and outdoor seating. My husband and I each got the stew/casserole. I had the chicken and pumpkin and he had the lamb and plum. The chicken... More

We visited on the recommendation of a friend... What a great find! We had such a lovely evening, the staff were great! Due to the amazing heaters we sat outside and enjoyed people watching! The food was lovely... I sense we may be back during our stay in Istanbul.

I was nervous to eat here because it was in such a touristy area of Istanbul that I just thought for sure the prices would be exorbitant and the food mediocre. Despite the area, this place served great food and the atmosphere of the street, while touristy, is really lovely.

Dinned here on our first night as it was not far from the hotel and had good reviews / recommended in guide books. This ended up to be the most expensive and least enjoyable meal over five days. Lentil soup and fresh bread were the best part of the meal. Mezzes not that impressive, had better quality and better value... More
