“A great local cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

I've been a regular customer for years at Village Kebab and thought it was about time I wrote a review. The cafe is in Titirangi Village with fine views over the bush and the city. The menu is Middle Eastern (dine in and takeaway) and changes only occasionally but the food is always wholesome, well presented and very reasonably priced. Unlike some Auckland kebab places, Village Kebab serve real lamb in their dishes, and not a mysterious sausage mix. They have a small, good value wine list and serve great Turkish beer but you can also BYO wine for $5.00. The coffee is excellent.
One of the real pleasures of eating at Village Kebab is when Thomas is on duty. He knows his regular customers and what they usually order and makes everyone feel special, particularly children. And you don't usually need to book a table.

“Turkish in the Village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

I have been their twice now, once on a Friday night and then again during the week for lunch - both for a takeaway kebab. It has a completely different feel depending on when you go - on a Friday night it becomes a happening place in the Titirangi Community where you can see friends and neighbours whilst eating either inside or outside. During the day when you sit inside you get a surprising view of the Harbour looking through a large Kauri grove, and it is more just a local kebab store. Either the way, the kebabs are tasty - just depends on the type of atmosphere that you what.

“A LITTLE GEM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Very popular little cafe/takeaway turkish cafe behind the Fairy Flower Shop in the village, is yet another delight of Titirangi Village. It has a lovely view through the treetops to the city and the service is friendly and efficient. Our lamb kebab on rice was colourful, tasty and with a glass of wine was a real treat without being pricey. The casual atmosphere makes it an easy place to drop in to
on the spur of the moment..

“VALUE WITH A VIEW”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Tucked in behind the Fairy Flower Shop this little cafe is a gem. Always a happy atmosphere, they have tables with a view to the city and the service is very good. Kebabs with rice are very tasty and they are licensed. .. Eat in - or takeway
