“Quality, diversity, joy!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We had a business trip to Istanbul and a travel agency was in charge for our transfer and first day boarding. In less than 15 minutes we were in Gorkem Kilis and just had prepared for a quick breakfast but then realized that it is impossible to have a "quick" one here! We had been served with more than 5 series of Turkish table breakfast. I have put some photos here but they never can demonstrate the taste we experienced over there. Service people speak English well and are very kind.
I recommend the visitors of Istanbul to test and taste the breakfast in this restaurant, on their way from Ataturk Airport to their destinations in the City.

“Perfect - perfect - perfect .......”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Let me recommend you all something:))) When you land Ataturk Airport, before going to your hotel, go to Gorkem Kilis Restaurant first, eat an extraordinary meal and then go to your hotel. The restaurant is just 10 minutes from the airport. It's nothing. Just 10 minutes.No effort for an amazing meal.. Since you will most probably stay in the centre, you shouldnt miss it. It is not fair:))
The food is more than beyond your imagination. The food is specific to Kilis. It is kebap but not like the one you have experienced before. It is something which you have never tasted before. Very delicious.
The service is very proffesional as well. It is a family run restaurant and they are great people. They are the people who have not lost their real essence at all.
It is a bit pricy compared to other restaurants but it is worht it. It is about 30 Euros per person.
