Khorasani is located on a busy side street packed with other restaurants vying for tourist diners. The food was really good. They serve tradition turkish food as well as pizza and pasta (catering to tourists). But I'd stay, try the local foods. Most meats are cooked on a grill. The veggy options are delicious. We went there twice and loved... More

This was my favorite meal while in Istanbul. The restaurant is really cute, has nice outside seating but also well decorated inside. I had the most delicious pistachio kebab and an amazing vegetable gozleme.My husband had an amazing hunkar begendi (lamb over eggplant puree). All this was washed down with some wonderful and inexpensive red house wine. Fantastic! Service also... More

Visited the restaurant while trying to find an other somebody had recommended and thankfully we decided on this one. It's just 5 minutes walk from the three main attractions at Sultanahmet and in a traffic free side street even though inevitably quite touristy area. The Turkish food is excellent both the meze and also the main dishes. We tried the... More

The waiters were so friendly, nothing but smiles, and so helpful with describing dishes. The food was absolutely incredible, no complaints here.

The food at Khorasani is simply incredible. We first discovered this place based off of a hotel's recommendation in 2012 and have been talking about it and revisiting Istanbul to eat there since then. Our usual order is the Mixed Kebab for two people which includes generous portions of lamb chops, beef loin, chicken, doner kebabs, and Turkish bread. The... More

This is a seriously touristy place. Walking up and down Ticarethane Sokak, we asked ourselves why of all the restaurants, this was the busiest. Clearly - we thought - it must be because the food is so good. Clearly - we realized - it is because it lives off its own hype. It is recommended, so people go and then... More

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
