This was close to our hotel or we might not have tried it as it was not very preposessing really, looked more like a takeaway. However we enjoyed our typical tourist meal here, possibly because we did not have high expectations. They have a few tables upstairs which was where we went. The waiting staff were friendly and talkative and... More

Enjoyed having something other than pizza or pasta for a change! Good value - HUGE kebabs, can be cut in two upon request, and truly big enough to share. Yummy meat & toppings, add a coke & you still have money left for gelatto.

The atmosphere seemed pleasant when we first walked in. Soon after we ordered our food, the owner switched the channel to play extremely inappropriate music videos. The food we were... More

I love kebab. I've been traveling around Europe for about 4 months (in over 15 countries). Everywhere I go, I get a kebab. Always. Instanbul Kebab has THE BEST KEBAB I've tasted in all of Europe. They have fresh, delicious eggplant, crunchy cabbage, hot meat shavings, and an amazing garlic sauce. You can add potatoes, onions, zucchini and all sorts... More
