Casual
Located just a stone's throw from the River Medway, Şelale has become a local favourite due to its friendly atmosphere, its 'holiday feel' and its positively delicious menu. Chatham has plenty of places to dine out but as with much Mediterranean cuisine, it's the range of ingredients on the menu at Şelale that impresses. Seafood is prominent, but with a great range of cold and hot starters, including a cold meze starter prepared for 1-2 or 3-4 persons, chargrilled mains and vegetarian dishes, chargrilled aromatic meat, fish and vegetable dishes and crispy greek salads, freshly baked pitta's and so much more from Turkey, Greece, Spain and Cyprus. Also has easy access for disabled diners.

We took friends having enjoyed it very much previously and they said they would come back. They also took a take away menu. The first time I had just came back from Istanbul and their food compares favourably with restaurants there.

We visited with some friends. The waitress has been very kind even with my little one. Food has been very good althought some food a bit heavy. Toilet not very very clean. The bad thing was that the receipt was given on a piece of paper with no single prices but only the total which should not be done.

Fantastic as always. We had a table booked for 6.30 but wanted to come in earlier. The restaurant was fully booked but they fitted us in. Service was excellent and the food was fantastic, authentic and tasty. Definitely recommend

Service was excellent and portion sizes really generous not to mention delicious.
It was slightly chilly but we were dining quite early in the evening and it was very cold outside. I will definitely be heading back here as soon as I can

Had a table of four and each starter and main was cooked perfectly. The chicken in the mixed grill was particularly tender and succulent.
Great service and would definately go back.

Myself and partner decided to have a Turkish meal at Chatham

Having always lived in Rayleigh Essex we regularly go to Bogaz - most probably the best Turkish restaraunt is the south east of england

I liked the kebabs but not enough peppers and was very dry

For a quick meal ok

Despite them having two big groups on that night, the service was impeccable, we didn't wait long for our food, and never felt rushed. Food was absolutely delicious, staff nice and attentive, everyone is proper French. Made me feel like I'm indeed in Bretagne.

Eaten here many times, but this time we were the only people in the restaurant all night and it was a Friday. That was the only negative. Not fine dining but good food at a reasonable price and excellent service.

Great food, great service and a nice atmosphere at a good price. Just one slight moan, no nuggets or lasagna left for the kids, we were told this as we were ordering so had already spent time deciding what to eat, we really should have been told as we sat down to avoid disappointed children having to find something else in a rush. However we would definitely go back and highly recommend.
