I very often use TripAdvisor ranking for restaurant recommendations but this time I was quite disappointed. Food was average. If you have ever been to good Eastern restaurant you will understand that this is nothing near the expected quality. Food was ok but no more than that. Lack of spices. However it would be very unfair to not recognise very friendly service and nice atmosphere.

Best Turkish food, with a good quality service.
The owners and staff are lovely, the food is tasty and the portion are big compare to the price.
Definitely deserve to be on the top 3 best restaurant in kata beach (in my opinion).
I do live in Phuket (for 5 years) and will definitely give another visit to Istanbul restaurant, very soon.

My boyfriend and I went out of our way to visit this restaurant as we were staying in Karon and we were very glad we did. We were greeted by the owner and his sleepy dog curled up at the entrance. The owner and his wife were so welcoming and friendly. The bread was baked freshly on our arrival and it was absolutely delicious. We had yogurt, feta cheese and a stuffed meatball to start, a Turkish pizza each and two glasses of white wine each which came to a total of £28 including a tip. I would hugely recommend this restaurant.

In spite of knowing that this is rated a “special” restaurant we decided to take a chance in peak time for a table for two. Restaurant full and packed! Owner walked us through the restaurant to a serving counter where we sat with all the food and dishes came pass us. A feast for the eye. All the time the very jovial owner and his wife was interacting with us. All about their wonderful breads, dishes, Kata, Turkey, their family etc. Also noting their passion and personal care when serving other patrons. Very special Turkish dishes with the tripe soup and their speciality home made bread my favorite! Wife loved her baked fish. I was spoilt tonight sitting at the “Chefs Table”. A once in a life time experience!
