Worth a visit, good service and good food at great prices when coupled with the Dimmi's 50% off discount. Thanks!

Marmara Restaurant

I came here with Dimmi's 50% offer. The staff were very welcoming and we asked whether there were any exclusions - basically no exclusions except for the drinks. We came here as a group of 3. We order the home made mixed dip because we didn't know which one was nice, so we thought we'll just order a bit of everything. As the main dishes, we took up the Seafood Claypot, Skewed Lamb fillets and Imam Fainted. For dessert, we had Baklava and Kadaif. So, mixed dip was nice. A bit of everything, and you can get a re-fill of Turkish bread if you ran out. The mains were decent. The lamp fillets were delicious and it was definitely a very nice cut and cooked very nicely - strongly recommend this. I did enjoy the Seafood Claypot and you can tell the seafood they use are not exactly from the freezer from Coles Supermarket. And we enjoyed the eggplants with tomato+onion in Imam Fainted. Dessert was OK. We prefer Kadaif over Baklava because Baklava was way too sweet. Overall, the service and good was great and I would come back here!

I came here with Dimmi's 50% off. It was good. The staff were attentive and offer suggestions on food. I do recommend this place, but it is a bit far away from the city center.

A Hereford Beefstouw - Melbourne

Generally this restaurant is OK for what it's worth. I went here with Dimmi's 50% offer and I must say, there were a lot on the menu that cannot be order in conjunction with the offer or the items have been "sold-out". So I strongly recommend you to ask what you can and can't order. We came here about 7pm and was hoping to order 'dry-aged beef - cote de boeuf' for two, however it was sold out. You would think they would have x amount of stock for patrons who made a booking a week in advance for more superior steak cuts. So we took up the rump steak 400g at medium rare which was still quite decent I suppose. We also ordered Hand Cut Fries and Beef Short Ribs for two. Unless you like eating 'fat', I would avoid the Beef Short Ribs. Hand Cut Fries is no where close to being worth $5 in my honest opinion ($2.50 is more reasonable after the offer, party given the size that's being offered to each customer). For dessert, we took up the Hereford Special, and the waiter will make the dessert in front of you which was interesting. I guess if you are paying $15 each, then I suppose they have to offer some kind of special service. The dessert itself was quite heavy and strong in alcohol - so be aware. Atmosphere was decent. A bit empty, but it's nice. The layout of the restaurant is a tad awkward. Would I say this is fine-dining? Probably no. The reason I say this is that when you are taken to a table, you should be served individually, rather than being served with other customers. Would I say it feels like your regular restaurant just outside of a shopping centre rather than a decent restaurant on Flinder's Lane, probably yes. Cutleries were interesting and service was prompt. So kudos to that. Overall, will I come back and do I think it is worth every penny? Probably not, but if there is a 50% offer, I would try again, but coming earlier to try the other steak cuts.

Great overall. Tasting Paddles for $10 is worth it! Love it!

Came here on a Wednesday evening with a friend. Atmosphere is great! Ordered the CHEF’S CHOICE MENU. I mean, it is definitely "not" worth the $58 price tag ("no" drinks included). But what to expect? This restaurant is on Little Collins, expect everything to be pricey. But the service here was excellent. Tori must be praised for her service, thank-you! Will I come again? Probably, but I would try out other places around there before coming back.

Max on Hardware

It was packed on a Friday evening so it was understandable that the service was not up to scratch. But if you do ask, then you will receive (just not to the point that the waiter is attentive enough to know when to serve you). Otherwise, a fair dining experience.
