Gorgeous food & cooked to perfection. Ordered a thick yoghurt dip with garlic & a salad for starters - both were amazing. I had the Urfa kebab for my main - wimped out of having the Adana incase it was too spicy - & my mum had the lamb chops. Bulgur wheat(?), salad & grilled veg were added to the table at no cost along with bread & water. Was gorgeous food at a very cheap price - think it came to under £25 with a tip!! (incl.a cider & beer)

We went to this restaurant after reading other people's reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! First good point was the large number of Turkish people eating there - always a good sign! Despite not ordering any starters, we were plied with freshly baked breads and lovely salads. We ordered lamb and chicken kebabs which were fantastic, some of the tenderest and tastiest lamb I have eaten anywhere. We had beers with the meal and Turkish coffees afterwards. The total cost for two of us? 48 Lira, or about £18; you can't go wrong!

we visited here and were not disappointed, its a welcome break from your average marmaris style restaurant, lots of locals eating which is always a good sign, there was the lovely puffy bread and dips which were complimentary, and we had the lamb chops which were cooked to perfection! cant remember what else we had but can remember that it was all delicious! definately try this if your after a truly authentic turkish meal.

If you want authentic Turkish food, this is the place to go. Great service and wonderful food at a very good price. We go back at least twice a week.

This restaurant is a bit on the outskirts of Marmaris, but well worth the (tiny) extra effort if you are, like were were, sick to death of the mediocre semi-British fare that is available at most restaurants. The vibe is very rustic, with no walls and rough-hewn wooden furniture. You'll see a lot of actual Turkish people in here, and the Turkish folks working here won't yell at you or force you to dance like at so many other Marmaris joints.

The food is rather simple but done well--just good, classic Turkish grill done right. The meat is juicy, the vegetables are fresh, and the portions are generous especially given the cheap prices. This is a great spot to have approachable but still delicious Turkish food. Start here if you've never ventured from the "Steak! Fish! Pizza!" joints more commonly found in Marmaris. The food will knock your socks off. Then treat yourself to Ney in the Old Town and abandon those horrible resort-town restaurants to their doom.
