The Beginning


Our family of diners will be familiar with our parent restaurant, Çok Çok Thai in Beyoglu, where we have been established for more than 10 years, and we are hoping to introduce our café to a new clientele who will appreciate and love our classic but modern Thai food.



Our chef Phattharana comes from Bangkok in Thailand, where her grandmother taught everyone in the family to cook from an early age. Pat’s mother has been involved in commercial enterprises in London for 27 years, where she has no less than three Thai restaurants, and Pat’s background reflects this influence. 

It shows in her magical cooking. When Pat married Serhat, and moved here one year ago, she was excited and delighted to be able to introduce her Thai cooking skills to Istanbul.


Try her Tom Yum soup to start you on your Thai journey. Everything is made from the freshest ingredients, which would be familiar to her Turkish clients; however the addition of lemon grass, lime leaves, galangal, and various sauces lift the flavours into the sublime. 

Dishes may be hot and spicy, or milder, depending on your preference, but they are always full of flavour. Our specialty is to offer you a choice of tropical beverages using mango, guava, lychee, pineapple, papaya or coconut to complement the fragrant dishes.

We would like to welcome you to Az Çok Thai where you will be met with traditional Thai warmth and Turkish hospitality.
