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.

Housed in a busy strip mall, this place Has been solid on every visit. The apps are very good (the mixed plate for two is well worth the price) and kabobs were good. The interior is pleasant and service is good.

Shish Kebab is one of my family's favorite restaurants. You can't go wrong with the hummous appetizer and Mixed Grill Kebab entree.

Loved the decor, and the staff was very friendly. However, the food wasn't anywhere close to what we expected, not a lot of flavor. I ordered the chicken kebab and it was tasteless to me. To be fair, their bread and their appetizers are Amazing. Would go back for them, but not for the entrees.

Although we were greeted warmly and had good service, our latest trip to this restaurant will be our last. This was the 3rd trip in a row (over several months) that was disappointing, and this time it was pretty horrible. My father ordered the grilled scallops and asked for no onions on anything. They brought an onion covered plate, but,... More
