Kismet Kebabs in Watford Junction is a great place for a simple, filling, and VERY good meal. It's most convenient when in WJ for attractions like Warner Bros. Harry Potter film studio tour. Prices are very reasonable; food is well prepared though not fancy. Certainly plenty of everything. Kismet appears to cater primarily to local trade but made we obviously... More

Can understand how, on a Fri/Sat night this 'glamour' strip in Watford would be described as 'tasty' for all the wrong reasons. This kebab joint could easily get misrepresented by a drunken doner crowed. But, behind the front, on a Monday night, you find a hidden gem of a restaurant. Mixed kebab with a side of Cacik was terrific. Delicious,... More

Came here last night to have a quick kebab and ended up resorting to a Turkish Pizza, added garlic mayo sauce and it worked a treat! Service by staff was excellent and friendly, food was served quickly and was excellent! Loved it and will be back quicker than you think to have the special!

Ate here once while visiting Watford. The food was served hot and had good flavor and taste. Service was good and it only took a few minutes to get my order. Portion was very satisfying and would go again.

Probably one the safer options for late night food in Watford town centre... Regardless of level of inebriation. Amazing chicken kebabs and guys are always welcoming and ready with banter.

Food was amazing! I had a special mix kebab with rice and it would of fed two people! I gave it a good go though. Staff were very friendly and the restaurant atmosphere reminded me of little places you visit on holiday. The take away at the opening of the shop was a bit of a put off but I'm... More

Great little restaurant, small but good. Lovely food, good service and very well priced. I'd be a regular if I lived in Watford. I had the lamb doner in a pitta bread, lots of nice dips and sauces, salad and chips. Couldn't ask for more. Very steady run of customers which is always a good sign. I'll get back some... More
