“Wonderful food”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

On the recommendation of some local business owners, we lunched at Avlu while spending the day in Kusadasi. Both myself and my daughter are vegetarian so we asked the waiter for something that contained no meat. He brought us a platter of mixed dips and sauces served with a wonderful "puffy" pita bread and a salad of fresh cucumbers and tomatoes; it was perfect. At the end of the meal, the waiter brought Turkish coffee and Turkish delight - on the house. A very nice way to end a wonderful meal.

The atmosphere was simple and the restaurant was very clean. I would definitely return if we were to visit Kusadasi again.

“Good value for money but manage your expectations!”
Reviewed 30 August 2013 via mobile

The food was simply delicious. The Doner Kebob and chicken Kebob were so juicy and tender! The service was slow and they forgot part of our order.

“Great Turkish Food”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Ate here twice while on holiday. Loved that the waiter brought us inside and showed us each of the turkish dishes.. The chilli dip wiht the bread is beautiful.Try the lamb cassorole.... amazing. Both teenage boys loved the food.. And the fruit platter after the meal was a nice touch.
Great price too.

“Traditional Turkish Food at its Best!”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Loved loved loved this restaruant. It's tucked away from the main stretch so you don't get any of the usualy hassle and it has a lovely family-run feel to it. We went here three times and tried quite a few of the dishes - all are home cooked and typical Turkish cuisine.

Can't rate this place highly enough!

“Good for Turkish lunch”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We shared the lunch specials laid out in trays in the front window. Fresh, simple dishes with great mezze. A relief from the large in your face eateries on so many of Kusadasi's bazzar streets. Good value, nice atmosphere.
