“Food's ok, that's it.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

While not many places stay open in Kotka after 9 or 10pm, Erkan might lure you in with its open door, terrace and bright lights. The food's not bad, the prices are tolerable but you're not left with total satisfaction. It's understandable that working in a kebab place might not be one's dream job, but still it would be nice to receive even a hint of a smile or a kind word at the till. Trying to enjoy your food or just to exchange a few words with your friends might turn out to be a mission impossible as music is blaring out of the stereo. Shame the dishes weren't served with ear plugs... Most of the customers seemed to be in their 30's or 40's so that doesn't explain the volume.
