Asian Cuisine Restaurants in Istanbul

Istanbul has a rich variety of restaurants to suit every taste, including delicious destinations for those who crave Far-Eastern & Asian cuisine. Today, it is possible to find tastes from many different world cuisines in Istanbul. Although Turkish cuisine is a quite rich one, the numerous Indian, French, Far East and Asian restaurants around Istanbul show just how global this city has become.

Nur Muhammad Malaysia Restaurant

Despite the variety of Asian cuisines on offer in Istanbul, few people have heard of the city’s only Malaysian restaurant, Nur Muhammed which has excellent food, a historic location, and a beautiful building.​

Nur Muhammed is located in the Karagumruk neighborhood of the old city, next to Mihrimah Sultan mosque and the Edirnekapı gate. This is the entrance through which Mehmet the Conqueror rode into the city on May 29, 1453. History buffs and trekkers will find the restaurant an ideal place to eat during a tour of the Theodosian walls.​

Seorabeol Korean Restaurant

When the chilling winter winds of Istanbul blow blustery through the streets, our thoughts turn to the fiery dishes of South Korea and we head to the welcoming lights of Soerabeol. The restaurant offers few frills but copious amounts of soju (Korean grain liquor) and hearty dishes laced with the emblematic fermented chili paste, gochujiang. This is no watered-down versions of “Asian” cuisine, as is obvious from the clientele of chiefly Korean business people who populate the tables.​

Cok Cok Thai Restaurant

Located just steps away from the Pera Museum, Cok Cok Thai is one of the best Thai restaurants in Istanbul. It was established in 2006 and has become a favorite with local and foreign fans of Thai food, so much so it was voted Best Ethnic Restaurant in Turkey. It’s spread over two levels, and features Asian-inspired décor that blends modern functionality with traditional aspects.

Pera Thai - Kitchen of Bua Khao

Having opened in 2001, Pera Thai‘s mission was to bring authentic Thai food to the heart of the city in an original atmosphere to complement the cuisine. Nestled in among the grand hotels of the historic Pera neighborhood, blink and you might miss it with only a modest canopy above the door to announce it. Inside, the decor in the relaxed but formal dining setting is simple and clean, with touches of Thai motifs and tableware.

Cafe Bunka Sushi & Japanese Restaurant

Bringing traditional Japanese cuisine to the heart of Istanbul’s Taksim Square, Cafe Bunka offers an array of sushi varieties as well as hot dishes such as Teriyaki and Tempura. With a traditional Japanese interior, guests can also enjoy a bottle of Sake or beer imported straight from Japan. For dessert, unique offerings such as Green Tea Ice Cream Tempura or Green Tea Profiterol are ready for a taste.

Wok and Sushi

The large variety of Chinese, Japanese and Thai food served in large portions is not the only good thing about Wok and Sushi. The inner decoration with flower ceramics on the wall and Buddha sculptures will take you to the Far East.
