“Fast service! Yummy food! Generous portions!”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

The other day a friend of mine and I went to eat at Izmir Kebab. Despite the fact that there were a lot of people (both inside of the restaurant and outside), they provided a fast service with a smile. The portions are very generous and I am glad that we shared our food: a plate of Greek salad and chicken souvlaki (three skewers), which came with french fries, yogurt and fresh tomatoes. We also had some drinks... I believe our bill came to ca. €16, which is pretty reasonable! Despite being a fast-food place, the food is delicious and doesn't make you feel greasy and 'with a stone in your stomach'.

“Great food and location... though outdoor smoking can damage the experience”
Reviewed October 25, 2011

One can expect that such a place would be a moderate quality tourist trap in prime location, but this place is a very positive surprise. The food was nothing less than AMAZING amd tasty. Portions are generous and prices reasonable.

The place had been a little understaffed with one waiter running around, but still managing the please quite a few tables of clients.

Overall, it is nice to sit outside and observed the hustle and bustle of the city, while overlooking the historic squaers and town hall. The only shortcoming here (as in many other places in Greece) is that your level of enjoyment is impacted by your sensitivity to smoke. Unfortunately, people are smoking all around in a way that is certain to disturb those sensitive to it.
