Yummy food and a lovely outdoor space

I have been to this restaurant before but this time, I met a friend on a lovely Spring day and we sat outside to eat lunch. She ordered the eggplant appetizer and rice. I had the okra strew for the first time and it was very wonderful. We shared the thickened yogurt with mint and dill. Very... read more

I have been to Café Shish Kebab many times, remaining a customer even through several name changes and menus. In the last couple years they increased prices and fancied-up the dining room. It has a very nice ambiance. I had lamb and smoked eggplant which were quite good. I also like their bread and red pepper dipping sauce. My husband... More

I went here with my wife and sister-in-law and found it to be a very pleasant experience. We shared a spinach pie appetizer which was quite large, maybe it would have been too much for just two--depending on your appetite. Very tasty. I had the rib-eye steak kebab which was quite delicious. Others ordered the Donner kebab and and lamb... More

Do not let the location (in a strip mall) deter you. Once you enter, you find a wonder decor and fine service. Best of all, the food is excellent. We have had lamb dishes which were very well prepared, and appetizers such as esme are nice and spicy. There is a wide choice on the menu, and there are even... More

I used to LOVE going to lunch here; the chicken kebab were hot, fresh and delicious. Within the past few months they have started a lunch buffet; and it has gone downhill. I have had the buffet 3 times (my husband keeps hoping it will get better) and I've been so disappointed. Food is cold, seems like it's left overs... More

I have been going to Shish for many yrs now. It is very nice, chic decor, large enough for large parties, they also have outdoor seating. The food is great, esp. the lentil soup, the chicken kabobs, moussaka, and the delicious kinafe for desert. Service is cordial and great. The lunch buffet is not that great though, dinner a la...

This has become one of our favorite restaurants. Although it doesn't look like much from outside, the interior is beautiful and the food is consistently excellent. This is a great place for a date or to meet friends or business associates, because it is quiet enough to have a good conversation. There is a good variety of kebabs on the... More

When I visit Columbus, I try to come here because it's always a nice experience. This restaurant has a Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory effect, because the interior does not match the exterior. It's beautiful inside even the the outside is easy to pass by. The ambiance is lovely, the cocktails are good, and the service is very kind. I feel... More

We visited on a Saturday around 9 pm. There were only a few tables with patrons. We ordered the hummus and combination kebab with kofte and chicken kebab. The meat was tender, flavorful, and juicy. It was served with rice and mixed vegetables. The presentation of the food was very nice. The dining space is beautiful and would be a... More

The first time you dine at Shish Kebab Mediterranean Grill, you'll be surprised. It's in a nondescript strip mall. So when you walk in, you're really surprised by the beautiful wall-to-wall woodwork interior. It's a nice place. Delicious food. Attentive service. Prices are fine. Nice for lunch or dinner. We like it a lot.
