Agree with many other reviewers in most respects. Welcome certainly very friendly as was the service right through the meal. Efficient but not hurried. We (4) had a range of dishes from the traditional to the fish. Most dishes come with rice but the fish (Halibut) came with really excellent sauté potatoes. We had one side order of French fries,...

I just had dinner at the Selale and I am impressed. The food was great and the service very friendly. If you ever go to the Selale to have dinner, try the poached pears for dessert. They are delicious. I can only recommend the Selale if you like Turkish and Greek food.

Food was very good, authentic and quickly prepared. Not too expensive, fair for what you got. Staff were attentive and unobtrusive. Warm atmosphere with roomy tables. Wine was reasonable. I would go again, absolutely

Excellent service, very good prices and absolutely delicious meat. You can't go wrong with this place. The only slight criticism is that the decor on the outside needs to fit in with the establishment. It gives off a cheap and average restaurant. It would look a lot better if they invested a little money into it. The interior is nice... More

I am pleased to say that we had a very enjoyable evening. The restaurant was very clean including the toilets. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was very tasty with... More

We were looking for a restaurant in Medway that could take a party of 8, at short notice, and came across Selale. Its a combination of Greek and Turkish cuisine, and I recommend that you stick to that as it is their specialty. Our group had a mix of dishes, too many to remember, and all apart from the lasagne...
