“Great food in warm ambiance”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

Stop looking if you're in search for a genuine Turkish restaurant. Sözlüm is the place to be! The choice on the menu card is from the category "for every taste something". The Turkish dishes, which we had on both occasions we were there were excellent.
Price: lower than average.
View: watch the sea and see the cruiseships coming in or going out.
Not the touristic kind of place - so that's a major plus for me.
And on top of it: a warm goodbye from the chef (the mother of the owner)

“Kusadasi's finest”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

This is not just a restaurant but an experience with a lovely family. This was the first restaurant we visited in Kusadasi in 2008 and we have returned every year since. Murat and his mother make us feel so welcome and she is a wonderful cook. She always comes out to greet us even though she speaks no English. Nice touches like a complimentary plate of seasonal fruit and turkish tea after your meal. During the afternoon it's lovely to sit and look at some of the worlds finest yachts while sipping a cold Efes.I believe that when big ships dock in Kusadasi some of the restaurant prices go up however we have never found this at Sozlum. Always great food at great prices.

“Can't get any better than this”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

After touring we stopped here and was welcomed by Murat.
the food was very good but that is only a small part of the experience. The view ( over looking the water and the friendliness of Murat was wonderful. I saw his mother in the kitchen and motioned to her that We had enjoyed the meal and she came out of the kitchen to meet me. Stop here for good food and the experience.
