We went there thrice during our 5 day stay in Istanbul and found the Food and Service to be very good. We were worried before going to Istanbul whether we would get proper Veg food, and were pleasantly surprised to find many dishes at Aloran Cafe. The Meze - Cold Appetiser was excellent with the Bread which was on the... More

It was a slow winter day, and I wanted to have a filling lunch just before setting out for some of the historical sites. I passed by this restaurant located in an alleyway near the Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul, and I was happy not to be hassled by anyone. The place looked straightforward and unassuming, so I went ahead and... More

We made two visits to this resturant in 24 because my family just loved it. The environment is cosy and the food is delicious.

The touristic and dull appearance was confirmed, and we regretted not having walked away as... More

Read reviews and this place stood out. We shared the testy kebab and it was pure theatre ... Don't miss out. Also lovely honest people who, when we stupidly thought the prices and bill was in euros, chased us into street to give us our money back... So, lol, also very good value!

We had dinner at this restaurant and returned next day as food and service was so nice and friendly. We were given a gift and offered a tea after our meal. I recommend this place for food if you are looking for delicious meal.
