Honestly, one of the best kebabs I have eaten in Berlin, but having to wait for more than an hour, without having the chance of sitting down most of the times, makes going there a tough decision. To try once, but not very often. Unless you are lucky and find almost noone in front of you. It can happen :)

The line will be long. We looked at 50m of queue. And it took us indeed 1:15h to get to this little tiny shed at the end of the rainbow. But you will be rewarded. And there is a shop opposite of it, so load up for beer. That makes waiting more fun.

Mustafas Kebab is surely the best in town! It's huge, it's spicy and it's also very unexpensive! The kebab is perfectly made and absolutely delicious. The only problem is that this tiny place in Kreuzberg is very famous, and rightly so, but you should expect quite a long line to get your kebab. And don't try going there when you... More

During my weekend in Berlin, despite seeing most of the city's sights, my friends incessantly nagged me about going to this "Mustafa's" place, saying that "you've never really been to Berlin unless you visit Mustafa's." My last day in Berlin, I had one goal: get to Mustafa's. From what I had heard, I expected a large, bustling restaurant. I was... More

Lucky day: we stepped out of the underground station Mehringdamm and there it was: famous Mustafas Gemuese Kebab - and best of all - only two people right ahead of us! Soon we had our kebabs (on veggie, one with meat) and two cokes in our hands, and stepped to a nearby table. After all the rave reviews here on... More

Yes, we had to stand in line for nearly an hour, but it was totally worth it. Three men working in a small kiosk-type building on the sidewalk was nothing to look at, but the kebap was great.

I have considered moving to berlin simply because of Mustafas. A street food kebab van with a 24 hour queue? Worth it! Probably the best food ive had in berlin, granted there is a bit of a wait to order but you will not be disappointed! If you are visiting the city, add this to your to do list!

It's a very good kebap but I think you can find better one. Maybe not in the center of Berlin but there are a lots of kebap's house, you have to try!

I've been two times at Mustafa's and I swear to God that I'll never come back again. You have a MINIMUM 2 hours queue anytime of the day, for a kebab with vegetables (I think if you know the ingredients you can do it at home). The staff is slower than sloths, they keep joking around instead of focusing on... More

We queued up to try the famous kebabs and the best advice I can give is that if the queue goes past the second tree fronting the stall don't bother lining up. We ended up waiting 2 hours 45 minutes. Whilst the durum served there was the best kebab I've had I wouldn't wait longer than 30-45 minutes for it.
