Great food with potential

Mevlana Kebabs is a favourite local restaurant that offers plenty of affordable and tasty food. It even has vegan options, which is a winner in my book. I do think the restaurant could be very much improved if the big corner couch seat was cleaned regularly. It always has crumbs and stains on it... read more

This place really does make the best coffee in town. I usually the $4.50 pita pocket on a school day. When I can afford to pay more, I get a rice plate with chicken. The food is quite good.

We just left this place a few hours ago, where we were served by the rudest person in NZ. Before we could finish ordering the cashier starting acting very rude as we were indecisive as to what to order. Once we placed the order she said "lets make that takeaway shall we", as if we were an inconvenience to her... More

We have a few Turkish kebab shops in town but this would be my favourite . The mixed kebab is of good size and tastes great and the chips are nicely done as well. You can eat in and it's pretty relaxed in there. Good coffee, nice array of drink options and of course the compulsory baklava and Turkish delight... More

The lamb kebabs, rice and vegetables were great. The Turkish coffee was a wonderful end to the meal. Good as the food is, I'll be back for the friendly helpful service.

I eat here regularly because the food and service is great. It is also very hygenic. I would reccommend to others. One of the best places to eat in Invercargill whether is for a quick bite or a longer lunch. There has never been any pressure to leave and have always felt welcomed. I think perhaps having comfortable seating (couches... More

We walked in off the street with no booking, greeted with warmth by a jovial host who went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed every minute of our dining experience. The food was great and the bill was low!
