After three previous meals in Selestat ,on the way to and return from Italy ,how pleased we were to try this friendly and welcoming restaurant. Our previous meals , mainly in pizzeria style restaurants, were not only very unfriendly with poor service but nothing special.
The waiter was so helpful and our meals were massive . We ordered brochettes and the lamb was delicious . I greedily also asked for a feta salad which was a meal in itself . Plus, who would have dreamed Turkish red wine could be so much better than the house red in the other places we tried.
It was spotlessly clean ( excellent toilets too) , great ambience and comfy seating . It seemed family run and the chef was concerned to make sure we enjoyed our choice . This was such a change from our previous experiences both in Selestat and Colmar . We were gutted we didn't try this sooner .
If you are unfamiliar with Turkish food don't panic , you can't go wrong with the delicious meat dishes .
We would definitely return on our next trip and not consider anywhere else .

Found this place when exploring. Have to say that this was perhaps one of the best Turkish restaurants I have visited. Great, friendly service and very reasonable prices. Unique interior and well worth a visit.

Hidden away in a small narrow alley, behind the drugstore, this little restaurant is beautifully decorated and serves honest, oriental (turkish) food. No frills, just nice food at a nice price! The people from Sélestat come here for lunch, so better make reservations!

Atmosphere, food and service was superb and for the price it was excellent. I would definitely recommend it for something a bit different and very authentic.
