The food is good. Although, I have had the experience of living in Turkey so I know the traditional turkish menu and this place has just the basics. The ayran is store bought and unoriginal. If you are a true Türk, just skip this place and make the original dishes at home. I was hoping to have the actual dishes... More

This is located in a small shopping mall on Bethel Rd. The outside is normal, but inside is all woods and elegant looking. They are family owned and very friendly service. Very reasonable and great food. We will sure be back in near future.

While on calls, I when to see a client who had influx of customers so I decided to stop in Shish Kebab for lunch. In this strip mall, I did not expect much; however, this place is clean and nicely decorated. The seasoned rice was the best thing on my falafel entree. Nonetheless, It was a good meal and reasonably... More

We hadn't visited this restaurant for quite a while and I had a Groupon that was about to expire so we headed there on a Friday night. Surprisingly it wasn't very crowded. Service was attentive, not rushed, and the food was great. Wish we had had room for dessert!

My friend and I hadn't seen each other in a while so we had lots to talk about and needed a comfortable, quiet place to have lunch together. We like restaurants where we can sit in a booth, so I thought of Shish Kebab. I've been there before for lunch and knew the food was good and it wouldn't be... More

Was looking for someplace for dinner with the family, avoiding downtown due to Red, White, and Boom. So glad we found Shish Kebab! We were promptly seated, and the server recommended a Turkish red wine. It was very enjoyable and reasonably priced. We shared an order of Falafel, which was 4 nice size patties over lettuce with a side of... More

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 delicious! Our waitress... 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
