“It deserve every dollar that you spend there.”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

It is the best place for meat or chicken grill. The prices are very good if you compare with the food. If you are close to Gelik et you have to go and visit,

“For any occassion”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Huge popular kebab restaurant, very close to Sheraton hotel. Amazing variety of meat and other Turkish dishes, very efficient service. Despite the massive character of the place, the quality of the food is kept at very good level.
Standard and classic choice!

“Authentic Turkish for Meat Lovers”
Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

At first sight the interior could indicate that this is a classic turistic restaurant. I am sure tourist will enjoy it as much as I did but it is in no way trying to cut corners. Both food and service holds a very high level and according to the local business contacts that brought me to Gelik then the food is as real and authentic as it gets
We had a broad spread of all local and restaurant speciallities and all were splendid
Service was attentive and polite, never far away
The restaurant can be visited by all, business people, couples as well as families
For sure a place I would like to visit again when in Istanbul
Gelik has my highest recommendations

“Caution, exploding mustard”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is one of the most beautiful and tastiest restaurants you can eat in, if you like Kebab, if you are into lamb don't miss going there
But I'm warning you about the mustard, I've never ever in my whole live tasted such mustard, it will explode in your mouth, it's not a joke, you'll get the feeling that you want to cry, want to scream, want to hit your head on the wall, want to bite the waiter, you'll definitely gonna sneeze and sneeze a lot, you’ll gonna cry for sure, but funny crying and trust me you’ll gonna love it
And I’m warning you too, never ever make it as a joke with someone without warning him, one of my friends was so close to die when he got a big bite of the steak, even he knew about it before but he couldn’t hold it, it was a sight I can never forger
