Chapel Street is one of Melbourne’s top foodie haunts, with an array of international restaurants on offer. Take a trip down to the less busy end of the street and you’ll find a little piece of Turkey in the form of Marmara Restaurant, one of Australia’s longest-standing Turkish restaurants. Established all the way back in 1980, Marmara Restaurant is well versed in serving up delicious grilled meats, mezze, Turkish pizzas and more to the people of Windsor. We recommend heading over and trying the karisik izgara, a selection of Marmara Restaurant’s finest grills including doner, lamb fillet, chicken fillet, kofta, lamb cutlet and soujouk served with salad and pilaf rice. Vegetarians will find plenty of choice too, from veggie platters to the peynirli pide pizza topped with grated feta and an egg.
The atmosphere was very warm and welcoming. The restaurant on Saturday night was, as expected busy and definitely worth booking. Service was fantastic and friendly and unrushed and of course the food was superb. Very tasty and delivered beautifully presented. Love it being byo too.
We absolutely enjoyed our dinner at Marmara. My friends were impressed with the Seafood Claypot. Great service & very nice atmosphere. We will go there again.
We really like this restaurant because it has a nice ambiance, pleasant waiters & my table of 5 greatly enjoyed both the Turkish Wines & the seafood crockpot & stuffed eggplant. We are happy to go there any time in the future.
