Today I tried their beef satay and I must admit it was very tender, juicy and tasty. Our Turkish friends no longer need to search for good quality "kusbasi type meat" in Istanbul.

We often find ourselves exploring streets randomly as we travel and then realize we are starving and start searching for Restaurants. Since we are both gluten free it's sometimes a challenge but at Cok Cok, with very fresh ingredients, it's easy to find the perfect food and wine. We definitely recommend Cok Cok Thai! Jarred & Nady

Pretty Cousy location and nice inside. Don't get me wrong, the dishes is not bad but they are not really authentic and special. If you just thinking of getting some Thai dish it's totally ok.

Cok Cok Thai ( Chok Chock..means very very ) is a well-established fixture in Beyoglu that caters mostly to tourists and ex-pats who just can't eat another doner kebap or warmed-over steam table stew and pilaf..those world travelers who prefer the ethnic and exotic cuisines to standard fare..culinary adventurists.

Description
ÇokÇok, the successful and popular purveyor of Thai cuisine in Istanbul, continues to attract gastronomes in search of adventure and novelty to the eclectic Tepebaşı district with an expanded new menu by its renowned Thai Chef Ms. Nuch. Equally exciting is an entirely new cocktail menu created by its professional bar team that represents a first in Turkey with its innovation and originality. Offering a relaxing and cozy atmosphere in its bar with the latest lounge music playing into the wee hours, ÇokÇok will continue to be a popular meeting place this winter for locals and visitors alike.Here are just a few of the new tastes offered by ÇokÇok’s expanded menu: “Tofu soup (Gaeng jued tao hoo khao)”, prepared with mung bean noodle, bean sprouts , and soy sauce. “Grilled calamari with garlic souce (Pla mac yang ka-tee)” black pepper lime leaves, and sweet red chilies served with fried rice marinated with garlic. “Fried rice with chicken (Khao phad phrik kaeng khiao wan kai)” prepared with green curry, spring onion and garlic served with Thai omelet. “Steamed Seabass (pla neuzg manao)”, a real treat for hot and spicy food lovers, prepared with hot chilies, garlic, soy sauce combined with lime leaves and fresh ginger. These are just a few of the dishes’ specially prepared flavors. “Fried lobster with garlic sauce (Lobsterthot ka tee)” enhanced by the perfect harmony of oyster and soy sauces with black pepper…The unique and remarkable cocktail menu is an experience in itself...One sip from the exclusive combinations of exotic fruits and vegetables will take you from the heart of the city to a whole other world. Designed to complement the foods with similar taste motifs, choosing from the new cocktail menu may prove to be a distracting challenge from the extensive international wine list. There is not a single ordinary or classic choice among the original cocktails prepared with fresh and natural ingredients and offered as an aperitif or digestive to dinner. Especially recommended are the spicy Pam-Dor that will warm you up even on the hotest summer evening and the coriander and ginger-flavored Rain Odaiba, a perfect compliment to ÇokÇok’s chicken with fresh ginger.ÇokÇok is the ideal address to drop by to awaken your senses with a deliciously spicy cocktail in the middle of the day, enliven your day with an exotic salad, or build up your strength with a nutritious and filling soup. Those who feel they deserve a little indulgence may stretch out on the traditional cushions at the mezzanine floor any time of the day and refresh their body and soul with a fresh fruit salad with bitter and sour sauce. Designed by the internationally acclaimed, award-winning Singaporean architect Kay Ngee Tan, ÇokÇok in Beyoğlu’s Tepebaşı delights the eye as well as the palate with an interior space that reflects Thai customs in a style of casual chic. With its cozy lounge bar where you can spend many pleasurable hours. With its flawless and courteous service in the tradition of Far Eastern hospitality, and its modern, exotic atmosphere and extraordinarily rich and tasteful menu, ÇokÇok is a very special place indeed.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
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.
