We love thai food and for us is this the best option in the city. The curry is creamy and delicious, and the only thing missing is papaya salad... But anyway its worth a visit for those looking for good thai food in Istanbul!

“Great change of pace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

It was raining and we wanted a restaurant near our hotel and found Pera Thai. Our group of 5 was warmly welcomed. Menu had plenty to choose from and we each found our favorites and spicy level. Our host was very friendly and accommodating to our many questions. A somewhat lengthy wait produced delicious dishes enjoyed by all. A nice change of flavor in a week of Turkish food.

Great food, great service, great ambiance.
The neibourhood is crowded with so many new places but Pera Thai is our classic after a decade.

“Very good thai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

As a big fan of thai, I was happily surprised by the level of spiciness of the red curry. Normally, spicy means bland but these guys clearly have a Thai chef because this meal was hot but in a nice way. The red chicken curry was lovely, but the rice could have been better. Bit on the expensive side perhaps but worth it.
