Although it takes 25 minutes to arrive there from the downtown, it's really worth it.I suggest you to serve your meal outside ,since it's a bit hot inside. Honestly at the most of the time I don't like to eat doner kebab; but in this restaurant I've found out how much i can love my doner kebab😎. Totally recommended. By... More

Very noisy and small place, with huge sandwiches for a regular lunch. The best part of the sandwich is the bread, which is baked there. French fries are really good. Service is chaotic but efficient, although during lunch time there is a long waiting.

Best Kebab in Switzerland. They bake the excellent bread in house and have nice meat! The staff is also very friendly and you get a Turkish tee for free after your kebab every now and then :)

This place bakes its Turkish bread fresh, and that is its main strength. The Doerner kebab (do not expect skewered meat; this is about the industrial concoction that is shipped from some factory as a giant pile of meat to be rotated as it cooks in a vertical oven and shaved with an electric tool) was fine, but nothing special....

I walked into this little restaurant looking for a quick kebab. It was quick, but thats all the good I could say about the place. I was greated with expressions of annoyance, and when the food arrived, it was burned and the meat was primarily fat. Definitly never going there again.

Perspective from a French: common kebab and got disappointed by the service..not particularly worth to stop by. Did not really understand the relation to "original" kebab. If I had to compare to the ones in Germany, I would say that they are the original.

Found this little shop and stopped for early dinner. Must say not too familiar with style food but I had a chicken dish that was quite good. For the uneducated it was a cross between serbian chicken and cajun chicken....just spicy enough without causing grief. Very casual and friendly man in the shop....offered me a Turkish tea....but was not for... More
