Good food and service at reasonable prices,it specialises in grilled meat and fish and various other Turkish dishes.Although tasty I think it's time for a overhaul of the menu and an injection of imagination.I have been coming to Selale for over five years and the main menu hasn't changed once.The main courses as presented are very basic,rice or chips as...

We went with friends after reading reviews and were not disappointed. Yes the outside may not look much but this place is a hidden gem. We went with the mixed grill that others had recommended and made the mistake of having the mezze before it which meant we couldn't finish the mixed grill. Still both were lovely and the waiter...

Really enjoyed my meal on the previous visit, so wasn't bothered by the basic decor. However this time the food was unexceptional, with the kofte being too salty, and overall for the cost felt we could have eaten better elsewhere.

Probably needs an upgrade in decor, however Turkish food with good variety and cooked to perfection. Lots of room and good facilities. Some evenings there is entertainment with a belly dancer.

This restaurant has a very good cross section of Mediterranean food. Portions are generous and reasonably priced. The only drawback is difficulty in parking nearby.
