When my wife and I looked for variety after eating a lot of Turkish food, we found this very near to Esans Hotel. They had a lot of options / selections and owner was very accommodating. The food was delicious, and during our 9-day stay, we went there twice and also took out dinner. Highly recommended.

On my first night in Istanbul, I was craving Chinese food. Instead of a Chinese restaurant, I stumbled upon Seoul Restaurant. I was a bit hesitant at first wondering whether Korean food in Turkey would taste great, but boy was I surprised :) The restaurant is two stories and semi-fancy. There are plenty of veg and non-veg menu options so... More

Had a business dinner here with a Korean colleague after a week of local fare. Generally average taste wise not spectacular nor extraordinary, but it was a welcome change for my Korean colleague. For those who want to drink soju, you will want to look elsewhere because the cost per bottle is very high when compared to South Korean and... More

Most of the restaurants in Sultanahmet and immediately neighboring areas cater to tourists. This restaurant probably does too - to Asian tourists craving familiar food. For European and American tourists, however, this restaurant provides for a bit of variety after a few weeks of Turkish food (even if Turkish food - especially outside the tourist areas - is generally delicious)....

Pros: clean setting, large menu considering availability of ingredients, a place where one can find detailed pork in Istanbul, good service, friendly quiet atmosphere. Good soup dishes. One of the few Korean restaurants in the city, good Korean BBQ. Fair acceptable kimchi flavor when fresh albeit a bit too sweet. Use of chemical flavor enhancer seem to be minimal to... More

Very good Korean food and nice service. I knew we were off to a good start when we ascended the stairs to a dining room full of Koreans. We had the spicy pork and the bulgogi and both were delicious. The sides were good, and I especially enjoyed the kimchi. The wine we ordered was very average, at best. I... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
