“DELICIOUS food, excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This was my first visit to The Sphinx in Belfast and it DEF won't be my last! There was a guy on the till taking orders, who was very friendly and offered a very professional service.... so much so that when you placed your order you got a receipt with a number on it... so each order was fulfilled numerically - so no queue jumpers! The shop was pretty busy for a Sunday night at 8.15pm. A reflection on their customer care and excellent quality food I say!
We placed quite a big order and checked it when we came out... everything was there as and it should be. The food is DELICIOUS. I had a chicken kebab in pitta bread... very tasty. We also got fish, chicken fillet burger and falafael (can't spell that). Not a great variety for vegetarians, but still one or two choices nonetheless. House sauce lovely... very happy all in all.

“I am converted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Was encouraged to try a kebab by a few mates who love the Sphinx at Stranmillis. Tried one years ago and was unsure, I am now converted! The meat was very lean, the house sauce was like nothing I have ever tasted before. Looking forward for a good excuse to get another one.

“Legendary best kebabs in Belfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

I have heard many rumours that this shop provides the best kebab ever. They were so right I went for the healthy option two Sundays ago never had a Kebab before, the chicken was cooked too perfection, lovely crisp salad. The house sauce according to the staff is a secret no wonder it was delicious. I will definitely be back can't wait.

“Forget the Rip off Sphinx theres a new Kebab place thats even better!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Just to update everyone i've found a much better place for kebabs just this evening, it does the same kebabs as the sphinx with absolutely identical sauce and i mean identical i've been going to the sphinx for years but this place is better i promise. They do a Double steak kebab on chips for £5.75 and it is delicious its double the amount the sphinx give you and cheaper!!!!, my wife couldn't tell the difference between it and the sphinx!!
Its Brads in Lisburn on longstone street, visit it and i promise you will convert !!! Just to state i'm am in no way related to or affiliated with the chippy.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

The kebab on bread was delicious, very tender with great flavour and as always the Sphinx sauce was perfect. Without a doubt the best kebab in Belfast.
