Marmara Middle Eastern Restaurant Manchester - reader comments

"If you are looking for good Middle Eastern food with large selection of dishes then this is the place to go to. Just make sure you don't eat ealier in the day then go for the buffet in the evening. I loved it" - shak taufiq, leeds 13/9/08 (visited on a saturday evening)

"Play area for kids. Nice dolams" - sumayah, stoke 3/8/08 (visited on a sunday afternoon)

"Great retaurant. Great food. I really liked their food especially the Tajeen and Kebab, the best kebab in Rusholme. Staff are very friendly and the over all service is very good. If you like like to try Moroccan food then Marmara is the place to go. A+" - shah, manchester 8/12/07 (visited on a friday evening)

"I had the buffet and was confused as your previous reviewer as what to do - For a buffet they didn't have much choice of food. I had only had pork, chicken and pasta. The chicken was nice but as the previous reviewer says, the pork was cheap meat and not very nice. The pasta was very soft and nice but a bit too cold. This is an average restaurant - seems like 'home-cooked' food. The staff were friendly but non-existent. When we paid the bill the owner or manager rounded up the amount - our dishes were £6.99 each but he charged us £7 - 1p isn't much but I found it quite rude" - jane redington, didsbury 31/10/07 (visited on a wednesday evening)

Trusted Reviewer "As far as Middle Eastern Buffet restaurants go, this is the best I've tried so far - even better than the likes of Efes Taverna in the city centre. The choice of dishes was fantastic and at £6.95 for as much as you can eat, extremely good value for money. Emphasis is on family diners with a Children's play area, including slide and Wendy House, keeping the kids entertained. I opted for the Moroccan Lemon Chicken with Olives, cooked and served in a traditional tagine (clay cooking pot). It was very tasty although the chicken was more bone than meat and, like the lamb my partner went for, not exactly a good quality cut of meat - something I've come to expect in Rusholme. Service was also confusing - our waiter didn't speak good English and just appeared to answer every question with a 'yes' whilst it wasn't clear how you ordered from the buffet and what you got for a la carte. Clearer instructions would have been nice. In the end, we had to get up and ask somebody. The waiters seemed more interested in watching the widescreen Arabic TV than serving customers. All in all, if you don't like curry, then Marmara offers a great alternative on the Curry Mile." - matthew, manchester 28/10/07 (visited on a thursday evening)

"There was a place for the children to play, the children were so happy and left me to have my meal" - dr barry burns, manchester 20/7/07 (visited on a sunday evening)

"It's a good restaurant. Friendly staff and new ideas for families with children where they can eat and their children play. It's nice." - Tom G, Bolton 10/6/06 (visited on a Saturday evening)
