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...

Found this restaurant by accident after having a lucky escape from a dreadful tourist place around the corner. We received a warm friendly welcome and shown to a table on the upper level. The food is very good and more varied from the usual cuisine available in this area. We ordered a mix of starters and opted for spicy kebabs... More

Eating in Turkey gets boring, especially when you have lived there 5 years. This is a refreshing haute cuisine twist to traditional every day Turkish specialties. Recommended to tourists who want to savor Turkish cuisine at its best, but also to locals & expats who want to experience change. Service team is especially nice and hospitable, and above all speak... More

After reading reviews of this place and it being confirmed by our hotel, we decided to take the short minute walk. The walk itself was actually the best part of the night. It's currently Ramadan and there were thousands of people out celebrating. We walked through the vendors at the Hippodrome which lots of cool street food and crafts for... More

I loved this restaurant, the food is fresh and the staff is really friendly and helpful. The menu offers a great range of items: grilled fish, lamb, veggies and lot of delicious appetizers from eggplant to stuffed grape leaves to feta to roasted red peppers and more. I encourage you to ask any questions about how the specific food is... More
