One of the very few Thai restaurant in Istanbul. The restaurant is located near the Galata tower on a steep hill. Great authentic Thai food and great service from the local Turkish staff Highly recommended

Wonderful Place Wonderful Staff Wonderful Taste We are Koreans and love Turkish food. But sometimes we miss Asian food and it's a perfect place to balance your tongue :) All staffs are so kind and the area is so quiet. I recommend you this place.

If you are looking for great Thai food in Istanbul - this is the place. Been here many times and never disappointed. Try the glass noodle salad followed by a green chicken curry and jasmine rice.

I do like Thai cuisine a lot and I'm very impressed with the quality of Pera Thai, they serve superb food. Their new location is extremely nice; spacey and nice decoration. For a vegeterian for over 15 years I'm delighted to see a different menu card for vegeterians. Our waiter Suleyman Bey is always very helpful and thoughtful. He is... More

First of all, if you're in Istanbul on vacation then stop reading this and go try some new Turkish food. There is a huge variety and you definitely haven't tried it all yet. Please don't miss out! The good about this restaurant is the flavor. I've been to Thailand and eaten at many Thai restaurants in New York. The food... More

This is at least the third time we go to this restaurant, and it is always a wonderful experience. This time we perceive a even better service attention and speed.

With two friends who like Thai cuisine like us, we have been for the first time this year to the Pera Thai, and we have found the same taste and quality we had already experienced. Only minor problem : the light is very dim and you hardly read the menu! But in one month's time they will move to a... More

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.
