“Consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

When I visit Columbus, I try to come here because it's always a nice experience. This restaurant has a Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory effect, because the interior does not match the exterior. It's beautiful inside even the the outside is easy to pass by. The ambiance is lovely, the cocktails are good, and the service is very kind. I feel like the hummus has changed over the years, but it is still good. Just a bit less creamy. And I agree with other reviewers that the complimentary bread and and dipping oil is pretty fantastic. I might be wrong, but I think that there used to be a falafel salad on the menu, but this past visit it was not there anymore. It would be nice if it made a return. I ordered the Grilled Vegetable Delight which was good, but pretty smoky. I'm not sure that I would order that again because it is a large plate of only one flavor. Still, there is plenty more to try, and I intend on returning to do so.

“Mediterranean in Cbus!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

We visited on a Saturday around 9 pm. There were only a few tables with patrons. We ordered the hummus and combination kebab with kofte and chicken kebab. The meat was tender, flavorful, and juicy. It was served with rice and mixed vegetables. The presentation of the food was very nice. The dining space is beautiful and would be a great place for a date.

“Really good food, great service, and a surprisingly ornate interior”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The first time you dine at Shish Kebab Mediterranean Grill, you'll be surprised.

It's in a nondescript strip mall. So when you walk in, you're really surprised by the beautiful wall-to-wall woodwork interior. It's a nice place.

Delicious food. Attentive service. Prices are fine.

Nice for lunch or dinner. We like it a lot.

“Real TurkishCuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Housed in a busy strip mall, this place Has been solid on every visit. The apps are very good (the mixed plate for two is well worth the price) and kabobs were good. The interior is pleasant and service is good.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Shish Kebab is one of my family's favorite restaurants.

You can't go wrong with the hummous appetizer and Mixed Grill Kebab entree.
