“A must for authentic Turkish cuisine...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

If you love Turkish mezze cuisine, then this is the place for you. It is a small family run restaurant on the river. The food is absolutely delicious every time. I have been to the restaurant 4 times and it never disappoints. There is no menu you get to choose your dishes at the counter and the staff are very helpful explaining what the dishes are. The baklava there is the best in Dalyan!

“Unique Turkish experience with no set menu.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful setting overlooking river and rock tombs next to the ladies rowing people across the river to the Kaunos road. Saki's has no set menu. You go in and then choose from the cabinets what you want to eat and then it gets cooked to order. The lady speaks perfect English and takes you through each dish so you can choose the portion size etc. perfect place for veggies. I had a lovely meal with some mashed potato creations with filo pastry roun edge and courgette salad with side salads etc. my friends had meaty meals that they were delighted with. Proper sweets too- apple pie. I had pomegranate cheesecake. Yummy. The ambience was relaxed. Very good value for money. My meal with a large bottle of water was 32 TL - about £11 my friends a bit more as they had meat meals and drank alcohol. A super place to go if you want something a bit different from the usual places that serve the same old meals with chips that suit the majority of tastes.

“Great food, lovely setting, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We were recommended this restuarant and it didn't disappoint. There was a wide choice of meze dishes and you could choose any combination. There is no menu but the staff are friendly and patient when talking you through the choices. All main courses are available as half portions which is great if you want to try a variety of dishes, and also good for children. The chocolate brownies dessert is gorgeous. A good setting by the river and reasonably priced. Will definitely visit again on a return trip to Dalyan.

“Great food, great family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Best find in Dalyan. Small, family run place with a really good selection of mezes and some of the most authentic people and food we found in our 10 days in Dalyan. Well worth seeking out (at the end of the harbour area, by the "ferry" ladies to Kaunos.

“Found Best restaurant in Dalyan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

So superior to any other restaurant in Dalyan this place serves a broad range of excellent Turkish cuisine using the freshest ingredients. Extremely lovely staff, a mother/daughter team who clearly love good honest food and do not cut corners! Not greasy just wholesome quality veg and meat...excellent for vegetarians too. Try the cherry smoothie - just pureed fresh cherries - delicious....My daughter loves the courgette fritters. My faves are without doubt the purslane garlic salad and the sautéed samphire.
