We tried this place because my fiance is a vegetarian, and she was craving tofu (which is not particularly easy to find in most restaurants here.) We weren't quite sure what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. The atmosphere inside the restaurant was relaxing, and the decor tasteful. The overall quality of the food was excellent; unlike so many Thai places which try to kill you with the heat of chili peppers, the flavors in our red curry and phad thai were delicately balanced so that no one flavor was dominant. Also, although the meals are a bit pricy, the portions are ample so you get your money's worth.
Although we loved the place, and had a great experience, there are some downsides to note. One is that Çok Çok faces a very busy (and very loud) street, so if you want to avoid noise you should definitely sit inside. And as I mentioned above, the prices are a bit higher than average for the neighborhood. Also, while the servers were friendly and professional, they were also a bit slow to respond to requests (which is somewhat understandable, as they appeared to be a bit understaffed for the dinner rush that night), so that's something else to keep in mind.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone who likes Thai food, or just wants a break from the standard fare of köfte and börek. The food's delicious, the atmosphere is good, and although the prices are higher than your average Istiklal restaurant, you definitely get a good value for your money. If you're in a hurry to get in and get out, Çok Çok might not be the best place for you, but otherwise it's somewhere you should really consider checking out!
