“Best food in Turkey!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We have been travelling down the west coast of Turkey and having read the excellent reviews decided to head to Mehmet & alibaba kebab house for lunch when we arrived in selcuk. We have not been disappointed - both the food and service has been excellent. Try the mixed platter for 20tl - really good value for two of you as you get to try lots of different dishes. Delicious!

“Excellent food value and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Mehmet is a lovely sweet always smiling and ever helpful guy. Even if you are not a patron at his restaurant he always has time to help with a map or a reassuring smile. We ate here the majority of the time we were in Selcuk and highly recommend it to other travellers. Mehmet made sure there was Lentil soup for me the vegetarian, I needed protein, even though it was summer and off season for the soup. We were happily surprised by the value and the warm service always. We recommend this place to all travellers. It is definitely a Turkish gem.

“Great, friendly service, excellent hospitality and good food. Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I met Mehmet before coming to Selcuk in another site, and already there he was friendly and helped me with lots of advice. When I came to Selcuk later that day he sat to dinner with me (I was alone), and we talked for a long time after the actual dinner. The restaurant itself is cheap (around 7$ per meal I guess), but serves great Turkish food within a welcoming environment - this was even more impressive as Selcuk-Ephesus generally feels very touristy and such personal treatment is rare in such places.

מחמט היה אחלה מארח והפגישה שלי איתו הייתה אחת המעניינות בטיול שעשיתי בטורקיה (לבד). יש לו הרבה מה לומר על טורקיה של היום ומעניין להקשיב לו ולהבין קצת יותר טוב את המנטליות הטורקית דרך זה. המסעדה שלו מגישה אוכל זול וטעים, ומתאימה במיוחד למי שאין תקציב גדול במיוחד (במיוחד עם עליות המחירים האחרונות בטורקיה).

“Great, cheap food and amazing service”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

For value alone this restaurant is worth a visit- $23 got us a feast with starters, drinks, raki, and kebabs. The service is what sets it apart from any other cheap place around. Mehmet drove to get us raki after he found out he didn't have any and brought us watermelon once we were done, treating us more like family than customers.

“what a find!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Having stayed a week in Kusadasi and visited Ephesus, we wanted to go to the museum in Selcuk, we were a bit lost and happened to walk past the Kebab house, Mehmet pointed us in the direction and a map for various attractions as the museum is currently shut. We returned for a cold beer or two and the best lunch we had in Turkey. Excellent service, really large portions and at realistic prices, it is a must if you are in Selcuk, we now plan to return in September - it was that good!
