Dimmi have been having a lot of flash sales where certain restaurants have discounts such as 50% off food. The girlies at work decided to have a night out and took advantage of this and booked Marmara for some Turkish food. We made a booking at Marmara and when we arrived, we were treated wonderfully. We could definitely tell that we were going to be looked after well. There were 3 banquets which we were able to choose from and we chose the Connoisseur banquet for $59.50 which contains everything from the special banquet and more! Once the food started to come out, it just didn’t stop. First up were the dips and they were FANTABULOUS!
Caviar (tarama) dip
Spinach and feta spring rolls
Their turkish bread or pide, were AWESOME! Definitely get one of these if you love bread!

If there’s anything you should know about turkish cuisines, it’s they make the best lamb ANYTHING! Lamb off the spit? Check!
Tender lamb off the spit with tomato salcha sauce and yoghurt
Lamb kofta? Check!
Lamb cutlets? Check!
Lamb skewers? CHECK!
Skewered lamb fillets
The fresh calamari was lightly seared but it was a touch on the salty side.
I wish I could say every single dish was great but the skewered chicken were very dry and needed a touch more seasoning.

The desserts are super sweet so if you’ve got a sweet tooth, this is your time to shine.
Finally, we ended the night with Turkish Apple Tea and this was fabulous. The hint of tea was very strong and it was quite sweet. I absolutely LOVED it!

Marmara is a place where you feel comfortable, they look after you and you will get fed until you can no longer move. The dips, breads and lamb dishes were exceptional whereas others like the chicken skewers were quite disappointing.
