Yes, they do Kebabs, but it is also a Turkish restaurant serving a range of Turkish dishes - from Lentil Soup to Lamb Shanks. The doner isn't too different to anywhere else, but the chicken doner and the minced lamb kebab are both superb. The chilli sauce (ezme) is much nicer than bog standard bottled sauce. They seem to make... More

Since I moved to Oxford from North London, I've struggled to find a kebab shop that sells a decent halloumi wrap. There are plenty of places that do them, but none that serve red cabbage and a really decent chilli sauce. I'm glad to say that since Bodrum has re-opened they have both. My lunchtimes have suddenly become a whole... More

I've been to Bodrums on many occasions after a gig at the Academy and after closing time Bodrums can resemble Cowley Roads very own Halicarnas; but I took the time to visit one lunchtime. Eating in at lunchtime is a totally different laid back experience. Ok the laminated menus have seen better days, but the food on offer is superb.... More

I can recommend, I have tried lots of kebab shops in this area, and this is one of the bests. Kind staff, fresh food served quickly. Always offers appetizers, often surprise with free sweets. They allow you to taste their meals Won't be disappointed in Bodrum kebab.

Awesome chicken kebab with rice. Always bring you warm bread and sauce and tea that they decline to charge you for. So what if the toilets need cleaned more often? This is my neighborhood spot.
