Having lived 4 years in Thailand I know a bit of Thai food and Pera was quite close to it, a bit overdoing with the salt. The pad thai also was done with thin noodles instead of flat. But overall a good experience. A bit...More

Living here since a while we were very happy to discover Pera Thai: exotic restaurants are rare in Istanbul and the quality of the food is remarkable. We continue to be pleasantly surprised each time we come here. Highly recommended !

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.

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...More

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
