We tried several places while in Selcuk, but this was our favorite for authentic Turkish food. I like it better than any in our week of eating in Istanbul too.

I wanted to taste local food and was well looked after by the owner and his wife who cooked a delicious meal. Authentic and real Turkish food so a must to visit.

During our first visit to Turkey, had the privilege of seating down with Mehmet while enjoying a terrific meal. We were invited in and chatted with his wife as well. It was a wonderful experience with people who made us feel very welcome.

No way to have such high rating. Place is under average in all respects. Mezze acceptable (spinach with onion very good) but meat - grilled meat almost not eatable, French fries frozen, rice blend. Service inattentive. One of biggest disappointment from Trip Advisor
