Bobos is a good place for a quick, cheap and cheerful lunch. They serve shawarmas and other similar dishes, which are good tasting and easy on the wallet!

I have had a number of lunches here so far. From the first visit, my maiden Turkish food experience was amazing, and I made a point of visiting again - to this particular spot in town, and a new outlet owned by the same people in South C area.

I lived in 680 hotel and I wrote my review about it, but if anybody live in this area, so you have to go to bobos because it is serving a nice (but not too good) falafel and shawarma also( either meat or chicken), it is suitable for people who lives in this area around kenyata streat.

The waiter was rude and arrogant the management was of no use. There online menu and there in store menu are completely different. Can you say "False advertisement". If you want my advice... More

Went there for a lunch after recommendation of the superb Turkish food. The seating area is a bit squeezed but considering the place is rarely completely full, this is hardly a deal breaker. The neighboring bars (Tribecca and Mojos) do get a bit loud in the evenings though. Overall: Great food, limited space, skimpily dressed waitresses.

Bobo's came highly recommended to me by a friend who works in the vicinity. The food was fresh, however, I was disappointed that my iskender was served with beef and not with lamb, which is how it traditionally should be. The seating area is very squeezed and unappealing, which really doesn't add to the ambiance. Also, the scantily dressed female... More

The warmest and most welcoming staff can only be found in bobos. To make it even better and worthwhile to make a stop there is the proximity in the CBD and the most delicious and mouthwatering Turkish pizzas in town.

Excellent food. They have their own Turkish chef. The iskender and the kofta are must try! Great interior with pleasant staff.
