“First time and will definitely go back”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

The atmosphere was relaxed and cool, necessary for a 104 degree day. The service was amazing..two different waiters were very helpful with menu items, drinks, and spacing of the items ordered. All the dishes were perfect quality, with color, smell, and taste all excellent. The plateware was perfect quality; as if new out of the box. The lamb was cooked perfect, and the beef/lamb kebabs were spiced wonderfully, with each bite causing moans of joy. One main dish, priced around $15-20, could definitely feed two people; the two dishes we ordered fed us there, back at the hotel, and the next day. The tab was under $50, which is a deal considering the quality and amount of the food. Pls go and support this restaurant.

“100 Miles to a Great Meal”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

My wife and myself live in Bisbee, Arizona. Any time we have a chance to travel to Tucson, Az. we will go to the Shisk Kebab for lunch or dinner. The resturant is small and very friendly. The Service is quick and the food is excellant. We normally order the same thing because it is so good. The Meal we have is a large greek salad and hummus with lamb. The flat bread is warm and is so necessary with this meal.
We have tried other meals and give all the food the best rating possible.

“Great Ambience and Service”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

I actually liked the ambience and the service better than the food! The place has an authentic feel and the staff were all very friendly. My food was very good, but not the best. I would recommend this place for a cozy, fun Middle Eastern dinner.

“Great food but atmosphere needs work”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

If you like kebabs, this is a fine choice. We ordered the lamb shish kebabs and they were delicious! The marinade and tenderness or the cooked meat was perfect. The hummus and pita were superb. Just don't expect much from the atmosphere/decor -- it was fairly rundown.
