Food tasted very good (I usually order ''box'' with chicken and sweet sauce) and pretty cheap too. Atmosphere is nothing special but there isn't really anything to complain about either. Service is fast but not sure how friendly the staff is since I haven't really interacted with them except for ordering and receiving my order.

The Kebab is good, not great. It has a great value for money as you can have a menu (plus soda and fries) for EUR 4. Though it looks the industrialized kind, not all hand made like you would expect from a Kebab. Still, I came back for more the other day.

Maybe I am too much snob, but even a fast food place if it is expensive and placed at heart of large tourist object, must have at least one of three. Good food, nice interior, fast and friendly service. Quality of kebab is good only if you very like smashed cabbage with cheap oil. Staff is friendly but some 3... More

We needed some quick eats close to our hotel in Riga old town. For us, Turkebab worked perfect. I had the falafel plate and wife had chicken doner plate with spicy sauce. It was fresh good tasting food. I was reminded of iskander kebabs in Turkey. What added to the experience was 1) the simple directions posted in English, 2)... More

Well, I visited late afternoon, about 4pm, the place was steady, and I ordered my Kebab, which was stone cold covered in a sauce which had no taste to it what so ever!! From what I have seen most people left their food!! Maybe a visit late at night after a night out maybe better!! on second thoughts one visit... More

I have been many times in this place. I've always had good service and a good, tasty food. I recommend everyone to try the kebabs.

I've had decent Turkish kebabs in Berlin, Istanbul and Almaty. This doesn't provide those, just bland tasteless food which you would have to be very drunk to actually stomach.

I've lived in Berlin for one year and this city turned me to Turkish food (there are plenty of kebab places, but some are really good!), and coming back to Riga meant finding one here. Don't get me wrong - I'm not trying to mess Turkebab business (if they have clients, let them live!), but this is neither Turk, nor... More

I wasn't surprised in the least by the food poising attributed to Turkebab at a local music festival. I've tried Turkebab three times, and all three felt nauseous afterwards. This was well before the food poisoning scandal. A friend and a colleague both had the same experience. Add to that stale bread and bland food and there is simply no... More
