Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Super menu catering to both meat eaters and vegetarians. The restaurant was very busy but we were seated and served very promptly. The food was delicious and fresh. We really enjoyed our meal and would visit again if we are in town.

Dinner here while touring. Prompt, pleasant service. Standard Turkish menu. The lamb was a little dry, but otherwise good food, excellent salads. Reasonably priced.

Such good value, so fresh and such fast service. Got 2 kebabs to takeaway which were served very quickly. This has been a Dunedin staple for so many years and has never decreased in quality or quantity. Always a reliably good meal. Very well priced.

We had a good lunch for a very reasonable price, $43.00 NZ dollars. We had the vegetarian Mezza platter and the combo shish kabob with chicken breast and lamb. You can sit very comfortablely.

My family had dinner here last night. When we arrived the place was very busy so we thought this must be a good sign. And it didn't disappoint. The staff were outstanding and knowledgeable of the food on offer. The food itself was very good....So much flavour and the food was so fresh. The meals are large. I definitely recommend this restaurant. Of note was an ambulance officer came in looking for a meal and although they had shut cooking, they gave him a table and prepared a meal for the guy which we thought was outstanding.More

We came yesterday, a group of 3. Maybe it was the wrong time of day, it was late lunch. The waitress was amazing!! Very attentive and quick. She rocked! I thought the salads lacked flavour, the lamb though was surperb. The music could have been...louder,,to add to atmosphere.More

Dined here on many occasion, this time did 'delivery easy' food was excellent standard as usual, but just writing a review to compliment this restaurant on using cardboard instead of plastic as the base product for their takeaway containers

My first visit to Paasha having seen some good reviews. There are many Turkish take-away and sit-in restaurants in Dunedin, but thought we would give Paasha a try. But my friend and I were disappointed. The menu was not particularly exciting. We chose Chicken Shish....It came on a plate with a small amount of rice and some lettuce. But there were just 4 cubes of chicken and, apart from a small amount of hummus, there were no sauces to liven up the meal. We both thought it was rather mediocre. Next time we will return to our well-tested Turkish restaurant in Princes Street where we know that the quality is good and the cost is significantly cheaper.More

Second time I’ve visited here and this time also excellent. With family, we had the platter which was a massive amount of food and so tasty! Will come again when next in Dunedin.

Very good and quick service. Good vegan options (I got the falafel which was amazing), can also have your choice of three sauces to go with the pita bread which provides great options. Pleasant experience

Fairly typical Turkish style food with no particular flair. The atmosphere is OK - just another restaurant really. The prices are OK. You'll get a decent feed at a reasonable price but nothing out of the ordinary.

After reading all the great reviews I was exited to eat there, but it turned out to be a huge disappointment. The food was extremely bland. No taste whatsoever. Here and there a highlight on the mezzo platter — great tepenade, lovely dolmades and a...great spot of eggplant. But those were in such tiny portions... not even one mouth full. Lots of shredded cabbage (not a salad as advertised as it didn’t even have seasoning in it.) Meats are bland, bread is well...just bread with tasteless dips and sauces. I guess it suits a certain palet....but if you have a palet for flavour you should give this place a skip. But everything was fresh and crisp...the only good thing I can say about it...More

This restaurant exceeded expectations. The atmosphere was great the food was truly excellent as good if not better than I had in Istanbul. The staff were friendly and the service was prompt but not hasty. I would thoroughly recommend a visit.
