December 6, 2015 pizza, Take Away, West 1 Comment



I’d visited Derya on Dalry Road a few times, although I hadn’t reviewed it for some reason. I valued it as one of the few places in the city for traditional Turkish lahmacun. I think it remains in the same ownership but has changed its named, tweaked the menu, and is now trading as The Marmaris. On a chilly night I gave it a visit.

The interior is much the same with a few tables and chairs designed mainly to make your wait for takeaway fare more comfortable rather than it particularly being a sit-in place.



I kept things pretty simple with my regular pepperoni and mushroom pizza ordered from the efficient counter man.

Within a matter of minutes I was back in the cold night air with pizza box in hand.

The first bite brought an instant familiarity as it was a very recognisable flavour and texture. The freshly baked pizza had a pillowy base and good cheesy topping. It was good stuff.

So overall, The Marmaris, not to be confused with Marmaris on Clerk Street, is doing pleasing work. Their pizza was rather good and hit the spot very nicely. I dare say I’ll be back again, before long.
