We have had kebabs from here on many occasions and never been disappointed and we weren’t this time! Tasty lamb kebabs, generous salad and lovely crispy chips! Keep it up!

After reading the reviews was really looking forward to our family treat. How disappointed we were never been here before and definitely won’t be returning. Expensive for the quantity you receive and quality. Pitta bread not edible so hard chicken pieces way too much garlic...which over powered the kebab and still tasted the next morning but on the other side the lamb was bland and not enjoyable cheesy chips such a small portion and the cheese was just sitting on top not melted at all pretty much the worst we have had so the hunt continues for a great takeaway kebabMore

I've been a regular visitor to The Cali Grill for many years and I can't rate the place highly enough. From the wonderful staff who always greet you with a smile, to the great range of food cooked fresh to order. If you ask them...very nicely they may even teach you some Italian!More

Had a lovely meal last night first time we have been. Meat was so tender packed full of flavour. Had a lovely fresh salad as well will be going back next week for sure. Service fast and friendly and they even have a car park.

Wow! Had a donner kebab & a chicken kebab earlier this evening for me & my partner, both were excellent! Great quality, value & service. My only criticism is that they only take cash as payment. I hope they move towards card/contactless payment soon as...carrying cash nowadays is not seen as very hygienic.More
