Istanbul Allerton awarded the 2021 Travellers’ Choice Award by TripAdvisor


Turkish restaurant Istanbul Allerton has been named as one of the best-rated restaurants making it into Tripadvisor’s top 10% worldwide.

Having been open just 18 months, the South Liverpool venue has been awarded the 2021 Travellers’ Choice Award by the world’s largest travel review platform.

The accolade is given to businesses that have consistently delivered quality experiences with great independent reviews on Tripadvisor in the past year, with Istanbul Allerton scoring highly for food, value and service.

Director at Istanbul Allerton Emrah Bal said:

“We are absolutely delighted to have received this recognition from Tripadvisor especially following such a difficult time for us and for hospitality venues across the city. We opened Istanbul Allerton in February 2020 following the success of our Woolton restaurant but almost immediately we were hit with restrictions due to Covid. We’ve spent much of our opening year looking at ways that we could adapt to new rules and regulations and that’s made us all the more grateful for our customers and everyone who’s supported us along the way.

“To be able to host guests inside the restaurant again is brilliant and in line with lockdown rules easing we’ve also received this award from Tripadvisor, which is so rewarding for our team who have worked unbelievably hard to provide the very best dining experience all while maintaining Covid-secure measures that put customer and staff safety first.”

Istanbul Allerton serves traditional Turkish dishes alongside a host of international cuisine attracting diners from across Merseyside and further afield. The restaurant is open daily serving lunch from midday through to the evening.

The brand was first established in 2013 with Istanbul Woolton before the team, led by founder Guven Serce, set their sights on expansion. This year, the group hopes to enhance its portfolio with new restaurant locations across the North West.

Emrah added: “We want to extend a congratulations to every hospitality venue that has been recognised as part of these awards – we know first-hand how tough things have been and it’s always such a positive to see the industry come together to overcome these challenges. To be named in the top 10% of restaurants worldwide is such an achievement for us but it’s not been without hard work and dedication.

“Ultimately we want to thank everyone that has been able to visit us in the last 12 months who has taken the time to leave a review – It really does mean the world to us as an independent family run business. We have some exciting things in the pipeline for 2021 and beyond.”
