Just west of the Sultanahmet Tram stop on Divanyolu Caddesi is a small alley (Ticarathane Sok) lined with restaurants with outdoor seating. Although many of the guidebooks warn that the Sultanahmet area offers the worst Turkish food in Istanbul to undemanding tourists (Cafe Mesale, for example) we found a few gems during our recent 5 night stay. We were seated... More

The food is incredible and you will see it when you come to this place bc it is packed with people. The food is not only tasty, but it is actually surprising you with different tastes. Try shrimp caserol it is miraculous. The only down side is that the portions are big and you cannot try many dishes:) Atmosphere is... More

Ottoman and kebab dishes are something this restaurant knows. They only know one thing better and that is service. Add soupe of the day, good wine recommendation and great atmosphere you have a good evening.

Perfect little spot to take the weight off, enjoy some great simple food cooked traditionally and an atmosphere that is fun, chic and unpretentious all at the same time. Either go fish or kebab as both are very good. The local wine is a great compliment for whatever is chosen. Located very close to the Hague Sophia and Blue Mosque... More

Even though there was a lot of building noise when we ate at Khorasani Ocakbasi restaurant, we still had a wonderful meal - not our cheapest meal in Istanbul but definitely the one we most enjoyed.

We had only 2 dinners in Istanbul and had them both here! This is something I never do! But the combination of great food and atmosphere, attentive service, and reasonable price made trip number 2 a no-brainer. Among the delicious food here was a borek platter appetizer that evoked memories of the borek my best friend's Turkish mother would make... More

I have been visiting Istanbul regularly this year and this restaurant has it all; great staff (especially Ridran - as good at joking as he is at waiting) every kind of menu option, they have the best steak and yet the best Veggie food too! They are accommodating, food is perfectly cooked and quick and the ambiance also perfect whether... More

I often visit Istanbul and always have to visit korasarni. The food is great "steak" and the staff are just as good. If you are lucky you might meet Ridran great sense of humour. Korsarni is the best!!!!!
