“Change of pace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

It was so nice to have something that 1. wasn't Italian/pizza and 2. wasn't more than 10 E per person for a dinner.
From the photos on the wall inside, it looks like the place is run by a few brothers. One of them spoke good English and helped explain the menu. (The menu is posted, but since it's very terse, a description from the owner was a must). He told us all the sauce options and happily took our order. In addition to our pita sandwiches, which were 5E each, we also ordered french fries- I didn't see this on the menu, but saw someone else get them so I asked for an order too.
There's some bar/counter seating and only about 3 smaller tables in the entire place. One of the owners smoked right outside the door, which caused us to be close to smoke as we were eating (front door to restaurant remained open).
The falafel pitas weren't too great, but considering I saw the cook take them out of a bag and then fry them (aka they weren't made fresh/on site), that explain why. The sauces that you could choose from helped make up for this though, so I ended up enjoying the pita anyway. The fries came out straight from the fryer and were hot and delicious to eat.

“A seasoned kebeb eater had an epicurean epiphany here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

I've eaten a few kebabs in my time. Usually in Zaytoon, Dublin (held to be the finest kebab shop in Ireland) but wasn't prepared for the awesome experience I had at kebab sorrento. Their recipe is inherited from a mysterious Morrocan recipe (from what I have learned) and it is by far the best kebab and overall the best culinary experience I had in sorrento to be honest. Only problem I had here was that they don't open on a Wednesday :) Oh well... We stuck with pizza to pass the time. 5/5

“Best kebab in Sorrento”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Kebab Sorrento is the best value for money in the area. Great prices. Friendly service and great atmosphere. Feed a family for 20 euros and leave happy. It's a locals' hideout as well. Get the classic kebab. And be on the lookout for Rick Steeves while you're there!

“You must come to this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Outstanding kebab - definitely one of the best I've ever tried! Fresh food, friendly service and after all the Italian food, a very welcome change. Sensational service & taste. Popular with locals. Just do it!
