For years Pera Thai has kept its delicious and high quality dishes going. The servers are very polite and accommodating, too. I've had Thai food overseas (OK so not in Thailand but NYC) and this is just as good! Highly recommended.

We go this place for long years. I believe this is the best Thai food in Istanbul. All of the crew are very nice and the food is great.

I had some AWESOME coconut shrimp curry, a could-be-better Tom Yam soup, two portions of rice and two sodas. Food was really good and the shrimp curry was beyond the expectations. Good portion, right spice, many shrimps... all great. I still can feel the taste of it in my mouth. Service was great, the waiters were attentive and spoke English.... More

Tasty... I'm Thai and I love spicy food so much. This is the best Thai restaurant in Istanbul (only my opinion). I ever tried the other Thai restaurant not far from Pera Thai, it was okay but not the best for me. About the price is a bit expensive (25-60Turkish lira) but.....it's worth it for the taste and fresh ingredients.

If you like Thai food then this is must. Have been many times to Thailand, however rarely have I had so many fabulous, and distinct flavors (including spiciness). We ended up having 4 starters and the coconut milk rice (also great). Definitely worth a visit.

Pera Thai is one of the few Thai restaurants in Istanbul. It's a small place downtown and is frequented by locals mainly. We were there for a Saturday dinner. Though it was not very crowded, there was a big noise inside, I think there is an acoustic problem. The service was okey, not outstanding but there were no major flaws... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
