This was a great little Kebab place. It isn't anything flash but the food is amazing! The lady went the extra mile for my two children and made sure they were happy which was amazing. Nothing was a drama and our food come exactly how we asked. Definitely a great little place

We have tried many pizza places, just like everyone else however Pizza at this place tastes so much better. Thin crust base with spinach, its Arabian on the menu, is mouth watering. We actually went to Rotorua from Auckland and one of the highlights for us was the Pizza from this place, that's how good they are! Definitely got to... More
