“Gorgeous Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

We stopped off for lunch here, it was to die for both the doner & chicken kebab. Ate in-house had it served on a plate and it was huge, had an option to make it a meal for 2 euro extra, great value. They serve all the extras that comes with an authentic kebab, highly recommend here.

“Good sober-me-up-food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

My friends and I came here most nights after partying it up in Cork. Their fries were so good. The burgers were a bit greasy, but fast food right?

The staff were great when you think of the things they have to put up with. late hours, drunk people etc.
