The people are so kind. The food is extremely delicious. You should taste especially the bean food, the salad and also the meatball. If you are in Sjopje, you should eat in this restaurant before you leave. Thanks to all for the great taste. Regards,...Mustafa CekirgeMore

Destan's is a quick place for a good meal. It's a return visit and the service remains great and the prices are reasonable. Their menu includes traditional and European.

If you would like to enjoy the historical part of the city (which is mainly the old Ottoman bazaar located on the other side of the river) you can find many nice small kebap houses in the market place. Destan has been recommended to us...as one of the favourite ones. We liked the food and the service in Destan. The quality of the food was comparable to other kebap houses, slightly more expensive, but the facility and service was better since other kebap houses in the bazaar are usually old and small stores.More

Small, cozy "ma and pa" establishment located in the Old Bazaar. They were friendly and have reasonable prices. I had pork on a stick and was pleased- tender and cooked perfectly.

Dear, first of all thank You for Your visit and good words, but we don't have PORK on the menu, what you ate was chicken. We never had pork, and never will. Regards, we are waiting for You again.

These restaurants are most famous for their grilled "kebapi" in the city. Not big choice of different food but tasty gril.

Greeted by rude huffy staff who didn’t even give us a menu, then served what they said was their only option... greasy meat and raw onions. That’s it. I’m still trying to wash the tastes from my mouth. I would definitely not recommend.

The owners are Muslim , but I am not sure they abide by strict Sharia/Halal rules. Deffinatley the kebapi are made of beef and lamb.
