I've got this restaurant recommended by a friend and colleague and visited it my last night in Istanbul. Aloran was a surprise.

They have decent food in a good place, we were very hungry so I remember the large bread and the lentil soup most, and the juice, but I remember having liked it.

The people really make this place. They are genuine, warm and friendly and pride themselves on good service. We only had a selection of starters but the food was tasty and the bread delicious. If you want to engage with the staff and hear stories then this restaurant is great.
