Good to be back to this Rest. after more than 25 years, My dad used to bring us here in the 1990's and still the same, nothing changed! Same taste and classic type of servants and plates, what makes it different it's buffet-like starter dish, and simply serving Turkish traditional meat cooking.

Thanks to a taxi driver we have tried this restauran. It is an excellent Turkish food style in a fast food survice way. What you do is stand in front of the cashier, choose your food from the pictures, pay and sit waiting for the food in no time.

Excellent restaurant. Also if you don't have time try their fast food part. Their Gelik köfteli sandwich is fantastic. If you like mustard they make themselves. But take it easy it is super strong.

If you want good meat and quality Turkish food, this is an established and very nice restaurant In Istanbul. Not too far from the airport, it might be worthwhile if you are between flights.

This is the best real Turkish grills with great atmosphere you can eat and with joy. They have lots of choices. Suitable for kids as well and they have section for self-services where visitor can select the item and eat inside the restaurant.

Gelik has the best Iskender kebab in the world. After having it, you develop a taste that's never satisfied with "any so-called" Turkish food!
