Those who have come on holiday to Dalaman and prefer slightly more Anglicised versions of dishes will still find there are many different things to try. Generally Turkish food is not particularly spicey (only a few odd dishes will be hot), and in many restaurants they are happy to cook something especially for you if nothing on the menu takes your fancy. The larger hotels and resorts in Dalaman have several restaurants where you’ll be able to enjoy international cuisine of many different varieties.
