“Great Meatball and good price”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This restaurant doesn't have a menu, you can choose the mezze, meat or meatball from their counter. They don't have many options but it is the advantage that they are focusing on meatballs and skewers, and they make really good one. It is one of the best meatball restaurant in Turkey I have tried.

They have indoor and outdoor seating of a newly built building. Many local people go there and it is not a touristic place.

“Marvelous Mezzes and great Kofte”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

A simple restaurant, but fantastic mezzes (try the local greens, or the beets, not to mention the yogurt!) which are served in such generous portions that you may not be hungry by the time your fresh cooked kofte are served with all of their accompaniments. But, the kofte are worth saving some room to enjoy!

“not to be missed while you are in Selcuk”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

This is not a fancy restaurant but you will receive good service and great food. Do not limit yourself with kofte and taste the appetizers that they have on the menu.

Most importantly leave a place in your tummy for the dessert called "keskul". It is a dessert made from milk, crushed almond, sugar, rice flour and/or potato flour. Keskul traditionally garnished with coconut or pistachio, however at Selcuk Kofteci it is garnished with tahini and molasses. MUST TRY dessert while you are in Selcuk.

“Best kofte in Turkey”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

This small unassuming restaurant is such a treasure. They make the best kofte in Turkey. Another dish not to be missed is the Chicken skewers. Definitely worth travelling for. Great for lunch on market Saturday, but be warned, it does get busy. Can't wait for their new restaurant beside the old to open. Looks very impressive. Oh, and don't forget to try the milk pudding after your kofte, sooooo good.

“Not fancy but very, very pleasant”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

This place was recommended to us by a very nice lady we met on the train. Her family owns it. Very good meatballs with salad and toasted bread, and we ordered some tzatziki to go along with. Very nice to relax and sit under the shady trees and watch the puppy and kittens play. Great service, they gave us a nice plate of melon afterwards.
