For a quick takeaway meal this was delicious. Wish all kebabs were this good. Friendly staff and quick service

“Amazing Kebabs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

We were visiting for the weekend and tried Kebabulous. Best kebabs ever! Chicken and Falafel was our favourite, and well worth the wait. On all our trips up north we've made sure we've stopped in at least once. Make sure you try their icecreams too, great on a hot day.

“There is no such thing as THE kebab, but this little shop certainly offers a healthy version”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

I've lived in Paihia for the last four months and have had various Kebabulous-kebabs during that time and I have never been disappointed. The products are obviously fresh and the grilled chicken option is my personal favourite! Low fat and tasty nonetheless, add some of their selfmade hummus, it's just amazing!
Yes, the kebabs are not the same as in Europe, but I doubt that they are same throughout Europe either. I've had a kebab in Istanbul and that came with gurkins and fries on top...
Apart from kebabs, Kebabulous makes fresh juices and smoothies (try the Berry Lush or the Mango Magic with Vanilla ice cream!!!) without any powders or artifical additives. They are so yum!!!!
Furthermore, they use bio-degradeable packaging and cutlery when available, and their oranges are organic. The staff is always friendly and helpful and will know about gluten or dairy free options.
So, if you are in Paihia, definitely go there and treat yourself to one of these delicious kebabs...and a smoothie...and maybe some curly fries ;-)

“Revolting”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

This place does not sell kebabs as we know them in Europe, they are chicken wraps in tortilla bread. They put in a few chunks of dry unseasoned chicken, add salad, a choice of sauces and then throw it into a panini press. Paid 22 dollars for 2 "kebabs" and a pop. Rip off. avoid at all costs
