“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

Awesome kebab, friendly staff, nice cosy little place near Coles supermarket (it's tucked away so you wouldn't find it easily if you weren't looking).
We sat and played chess & ate our kebabs - it's the best atmosphere in a take away place!

Over priced and pretty unpleasant sadly. Cash sales only too?? Staff pretty unfriendly. Can't really find any positives.

“Great kebabs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Visited for lunch with the family. The kebabs were fantastic and the service was also great.

Only has evaporative cooling, which was less than useless. Inside the shop was nearly unbearably hot, and the decor is questionable/quirky. Would have been more comfortable siting with the locals under a tree at the local park.

Was not happy being charged $3 for the cheap Coles bottle of water that was bought from Coles directly across from the restaurant.
