We stopped here for lunch when we were touring the city of Dunedin. We had the combination shish kabob and it was very very good. All of us enjoyed our lunch

Dost is located close to the Octagon. Most of the regular customers seem to opt for the take-away, so it doesn't get crowded. We liked it so much that we returned the next day for lunch. Fresh food, quick service, good value for money. I had the falafel wrap both times, with different sauces to vary the taste. They take... More

Great take way (plus limited eat in ) food in a café that's as clean as a whistle, A grade proudly displayed on the wall. The salad is fresh, the meat beautifully cooked and tasty and it's service with a smile. Best Turkish in Dunedin IMO - also super quick service

Had a falafel salad for dinner while visiting Dunedin after finding this place on Trip Advisor. Really fresh salad and beautiful falafel, very impressed and will definitely be back! $11 for the large is a good price too.

I was out looking for dinner one night in Dunedin and walked through The Octagon. Places were either too crowded or a bit noisy. By chance I came across Dost. Ordered a chicken kebab. It was massive and packed with lettuce tomato and chicken and garlic sauce. I enjoyed it a lot. The owner even gave me a baklava afterwards... More

Probably one of the best kebabs I have had (doner $11). Huge servings, clean and very friendly staff.

Ok I only wanted something for lunch, but for $11.00 the doner was so big it did half my dinner. Fresh and tasty. And its just off the Octagon, heading south.

Numerous visits over the last few years and dost always delivers! Decent food always served with a smile by the guys in there. Good value for money, but mainly a takeaway place.

Good turkish kebab joint, all the usual favourites, done well. Kebabs are a great alternative to other fast food, and especially if choosing the real, rather than processed, meat options can be pretty healthy with only minimal bread and tons of fresh vegetables and lean meat. I would recommend a visit.
