Went there 3 times in the 3 days we stayed in Istanbul. Service was great, especially Apo and Veysel - lovely and friendly, and food was incredible. We also were given free evil eyes and Turkish delight - an exciting and welcome bonus :) definately make it a stop.

A lot of turkish restaurants offer variations on pretty much the same dishes, what often is the difference is the little things like service and attention to detail. Aloran is one of those where the food is excellent, the service is impeccable and the ambiance is right for dining after a hard afternoon of trekking around istanbul's sights, there is... More

After a a slightly disappointing meal at a restaurant round the corner, we came upon Aloran as we walked home. Abdullah was encouraging and friendly and his customers urged us to try the restaurant the following night since they'd eaten there 3 nights in a row. We were glad we did. Abdullah and Orhan were very professional and able to... More

We chose 3 restaurants from a list rated by Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed by any of them. Aloran serves an excellent Osmani lamb dish and the chicken Kebab is great too. The waiter was very entertaining and amusing. Good food and good company and 5 minutes from our hotel to boot.

Excellent food and very good value - try the beyti kebab but don't nibble too much of the lovely bread and dips beforehand!

If you go here you must have testy kebab and prepare to be entertained by the staff serving it. The testy kebab was excellent and subtly spiced.

I came here because of the Trip Advisor reviews. I was not disappointed. Abdullah greeted us at the entrance and we place ourselves entirely in his hands. Everything - and I mean everything - was first rate. This is a truly wonderful place. When visiting Sultanahmet, do not pass up your opportunity to eat here.

This place was recommended by the hotel. Food was great which is definitely better than my expectations. The waiter, APO, is so enthusiastic about his work. Had great time here!
