“Forget the Rip off Sphinx theres a new Kebab place thats even better!!!!!!!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Just to update everyone i've found a much better place for kebabs just this evening, it does the same kebabs as the sphinx with absolutely identical sauce and i mean identical i've been going to the sphinx for years but this place is better i promise. They do a Double steak kebab on chips for £5.75 and it is delicious its double the amount the sphinx give you and cheaper!!!!, my wife couldn't tell the difference between it and the sphinx!!
Its Brads in Lisburn on longstone street, visit it and i promise you will convert !!! Just to state i'm am in no way related to or affiliated with the chippy.

“Delicious”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

The kebab on bread was delicious, very tender with great flavour and as always the Sphinx sauce was perfect. Without a doubt the best kebab in Belfast.

“USED TO BE GREAT NOW SADLY OVERPRICED AND OVER RATED”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Ive visited the Sphinx twice in recent weeks, i used to frequent this kebab shop ever couple of weeks for years and it was so so good for Kebabs. Sadly no longer the case, on my most recent visit this week the price has now risen to £6.20 for a kebab on chip, the chips where overcooked and there was very little meat on top, basically they load in the chips because they are cheap dribble some sauce and add a little meat and charge what is now a rip off price for the service.
I used to be a regular customer but sadly what used to be a great place to get kebabs has now sloppy service poor quality and extortionate prices, i think the owners have just got greedy and are trying to live off there old reputation as a great shop. They won an award last year for the best british kebab just aswell it wasnt based on price and service. Ive several friends who recently have also decided to give this place a miss because of the prices. Sorry to say i wont be back

“Two hours later...”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We placed an order through online website Just Eat, and an hour and a half later were still waiting... My boyfriend called them to complain about the wait and lack of customer service and they just said they had been busy and so on. So we waited some more, and then after 2 hours I called them and they tried to tell me that my boyfriend had cancelled the order when he had rang to complain. So after all that, we still had no food! As I had paid by debit card, I had the inconvenience of getting in touch with Just Eat to organise a refund which could take a week to go back into my bank! Think we'll stick to the good old chippy round the corner!!! Why advertise on sites like 'Just Eat' if demand can't be handled? Disappointed...
