This is a really fantastic little place with amazing kebabs. It was right next to our guest house (Boomerang) and we saw one couple eat there three times in the space of two days so finally we decided to find out for ourselves if the kebaps were really that good (yes, they were!).

A great choice for our first night. The staff are helpful and friendly, the food is fantastic, and the local cats are charming beggars.

Arrived at night in Selcuk with plans to,eat here. Mehmet met us at our hotel ( another story) and pointed the way to us from his motorcycle. Tiny place but very cute. Food good and the price is right for food and beer. Sat next to some Aussies who steered us right.

We couldn't resist eating dinner here twice in two days, since Mehmet and Alibaba serve up delicious food and wonderful conversation. If you're in Selcuk, you should certainly check this place out. And don't leave without trying the baklava!

Stopped for lunch here, and found ourselves with good traditional food, in this case "durem" [wraps, one meat and one veg], and a interesting conversation of with Ali Baba himself.
