“Authentic Turkish food in a great location”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Having spent a couple of weeks in Dalyan and eaten at a number of restaurants in the town, I was shocked to see Sini languishing in the lower order of the restaurants listed on tripadvisor.

Dalyan is blessed with very very many restaurants. Of these restaurants, almost without exception, they are anxious to explain to you how very good their food offering in. In this regard, Sini is no different.

What differentiates Sini from other restaurants in Dalyan is the menu that includes a number of different dishes from those that are offered elsewhere. The location is entrancing, beneath an old rubber tree, the service is excellent - with reference to where particular dishes come from in Turkey . The food is truly lovely, followed up with apple tea, Turkish coffee etc. and there is an opportunity to try local wine rather than the usual Angora/Majestik etc. The information in and around the restaurant on local customs etc. is again a differentiation from the rest.

Overall, a great experience.

This restaurant should be topping the table for restaurants in Dalyan.

“Love Sini”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Once again we ate in Sini during our stay in Dalyan, as always the staff are very friendly without being intrusive. The setting at Sini is beautiful a quaint courtyard with a huge rubber tree which is over 100 years old. As always the food was delicious, a mixed meze for starters (1 of the best we had in Dalyan) followed by a clay pot with chicken which was very tasty and lamb shank which was absolutely beautiful, all served with rice &veg. I would definitely recommend you give Sini a try.

“Most authentic restaurant”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We had a very interesting night here learning about Turkish cuisine and sampling some of it. The waiters are superb and add some theatre to the experience. The clay pot was extremely tasty although I found the chicken stuffed with liver a little rich for my palette but that is my taste.

“Lovely food with a perfect setting.!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Just back from another great holiday in dalyan. You really need to try the Sini Restaurant. We ate there and had a lovely meal. We ordered the lamb shank which was specially ordered for us earlier in the day. When we arrived at night it was served to us with a selection of potatoes veg and rice....the lamb was cooked to perfection and just fell off the bone. Very tender. The atmosphere in Sini is very authentic sitting under the old rubber tree. The staff are very nice and make you feel very welcome. Go on folks give it a try....
