“Best curry ever.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We recently spent two weeks in Ovacik, having seen this restaurant on Trip Advisor I was eager to give it a try and I have to say I was not disappointed. We were a party of nine, two of us had currys, the chef came out with a sample to check if it was spicy enough which was a nice touch. The meals were prompt coming out and they were all beautiful. The people with the curry said it was the nicest they had ever eaten..after dinner the chef/ owner came out and spoke to our table to tell us about his background. Overall it was a fantastic meal with a lot of personal touches, prompt service and run by a lovely family.....

“Fabulous little gem in Ovacik”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We were in Ovacik for two weeks 17/aug/13 - 31/aug/13 and had many breakfasts and evening meals at Sandinos.

The restaurant is a little gem, fabulous breakfast for the equivalent of about £3 or you can "supersize" it for another £1.50 extra. Im a big eater and found the normal size one plenty - especially as bread is also given. And always two fresh eggs :)

The spaghetti carbonara was also fantastic. I had this a couple of times. Very filling and perfect portion size.

Evening meals here are a treat, the owner is an excellent chef and his indian meals are amazing. They also cook things "off the menu", I love madras but was not in the mood for chicken so I asked for a beef madras - it was no problem at all - and all I can say is it was the best indian food I have had in a long time. Absolutely beautiful. We ate at several indian restaurants during our stay but this was the best food by far.

Drinks are also very reasonably priced too so you wont break your budget eating here.

The owner was a wonderful hostess and so polite and would sit and talk when she had five minutes to spare (and its a very busy restaurant) - which was very nice and we appreciated she took the time. The owner/chef was also very nice and came and spent time talking to us and you could tell he was delighted to see people enjoying his food.

A great experience here and cant wait to go back to Ovacik again soon to go here again :)

“A must visit especially if you love curries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

I never write reviews but had to comment as its such a great find. We went in July & stumbled across this little gem on our way to town. The food was so good, especially the curries which were so tasty. The chef/owner was even happy to accommodate my craving for eggplant & added some to my madras curry! :-)
Our vacation was for a week & after my 1st taste I was hooked & visited on a daily basis either for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Although we tried various other restaurants this was the best by far! The prices were also very reasonable for good quality food.
It's a family run business & his wife & family were very warm & friendly. It's a definite thumbs up!!

“Great food and lovely people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Well, I was so shocked to read the negative comments about Sandinos. We have recently returned from Ovacik and having visited the restaurant 3 times we can only say that the food, service and staff were all fantastic. This is definitely a restaurant not to be missed. On each occasion Mujo and his wife were very welcoming and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. On one visit we were a party of 12 including 4 small children and there was a good selection on the menu to suit everyone. Thanks Mujo!
