Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Especially Turkish breakfast is very delicious and they are making...foods as a handmade. There is a little bit old women which is owner and everybody calls her as a mama. She is so cute and they are living our retirement dream. We loved here!!More

The food was amazing and tasty. They made themselves traditional garlic butter, as we asked if they could do that for us. The service was also great.

Perfect Turkish cuisine💯 Here is a family restaurant with real Turkish cuisine and crucial ingredients are coming from Türkiye. If you are disappointed from local thai food and spices give a delicious break and spoil yourself here. Both Dinner and Breakfast are great. Thanks to...Aysel and her team.More

Stepping into Istanbul Restaurant felt like entering a Turkish oasis. The ambiance, adorned with intricate details, set the stage for an authentic experience. The menu offered a delightful journey through Turkish cuisine—succulent kebabs. Yet, what truly stood out was the impeccable service; the staff's warmth...and attentiveness elevated the evening. Istanbul Restaurant surpassed all expectations, delivering not just incredible food but an unforgettable dining experience, leaving me eagerly anticipating my next visit.More

Wonderful food and staff! Reasonable prices - definitely worth going. Garlic pickled beets, the fresh pita - the platter was a bit light on the meat portion but plenty when ordered separately as a kebab…

Just delicious! We had the mixed plate and everything was spot on. From the bread to the meat to the salad. We caught a taxi from Karon and it was worth every penny. Highly recommend!

I found this restaurant based on reviews and it delivered according to my expectations. The fried beef liver is very good but ask to cook it without curry.

It was sooooooo an amazing taste. I haven't eaten this well in a long time. As a native people of Turkey, I was so enthusiastic that the first bite into the Turkish bread brought back memories of my grandmother's bread. We've been looking for good...food in Phuket for a long time and thanks for the great ambiance! Ne de olsa türk yemegini hic birsey tutmaz!!! :)More

Fresh, authentic Turkish food. We went for Sunday lunch and the owners weren't around, however the staff were excellent and the food delicious! Savoury lassi drink refreshing, and chopped salad with fetta worth mentioning. All our dishes were very good, especially the homemade felafels. It...is a bit pricier than other places in the area, but we felt it was definitely worth the journey from Karon Beach.More
