Fast Food - Sarajevo style

They only do one thing here but they do it really well. The decor is basic and the menu is minimal (5, 10 or 15 in bread with the option of cream cheese and onions) but the place has a good atmosphere and the food is really good. You shouldn't leave Sarajevo without trying this.

When the delivery guy came to our hostel, he said it costs 58KM. My friend complained that it was supposed to cost 50, so the guy rudely said: do you want čevapi or not? Btw, no bill attached. My friend managed to pay 54KM at the end. Čevapi from Željo arent that good. I ate better at cevabdzinica Galatasaray, except... More

Great cevapi as always here. You can have 5,10 or 15 pieces with onion and kajmak-my recommendation for the meal. They serve drinks like yoghurt, coca-cola or juice. No alcohol here! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaymak

We went here to see if indeed the place has the best cevap in town. It is your typical cevap place with a modernish generic decor. You get ok cevap and other food but it is simply average. They are kind, service is efficient but it is not a place you dream about going back to. The interesting part is... More

If you are visiting Sarajevo, this little place is one of the places not to be missed. One highly caloric, spicy meal, for which you will want to come again. Order ,,kajmak

In the heart of the city "Bascarsija". Perfect, clean and cheap. Meatball's unbeliavable. Yogurt also so good. Would love to visit again.
