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.

Horrible customer service. Got my order wrong when I rung up and tried to blame me. Confronted in the shop and the worker was rude, arrogant and argumentative .

I took my mum here for her birthday dinner to get takeaways. We both ordered falafel In our rolls and a side of cheesy chips. We watched them microwave the chips and when eating them at home they were soggy and tasted strange. We could...barely taste the falafel and both agreed that we could get better falafel from pita pit.More

What a wonderful place! Excellent food and excellent customer service! Staff were really friendly and really personable. The meals were sizeable, even for those of us who love food! Kids meals were reasonable also and was enough to feed my older children. Well priced meals....Do not miss coming here when in InvercargillMore

Delicious Kebabs and other dishes. One of the best I've tasted. There are two Kebabs shops which are halal. The other one is Turkish Kebabs abt 20 mins away from here. Both gave excellent services. The staff were friendly and welcoming.

I have been here every time I visit Invercargill. The last time, I ate here every day for all 4 days of my visit. Very Good food, fresh, tasty, well made. In a clean comfortable, casual place. The coffee is even better than the food,...and is what keeps drawing me back. The TURKISH Coffee is absolutely amazing ! Heaven in a cup.! You will be unlikely to ever get anything as good elsewhere in NZ. I can happily drink 4 of these in a row. To think such stuff is buried away down south. If this was in Wellington, they'd be famous countrywide. Only one small quibble, One of the staff, the fatman with the goatee in rather abrupt, and seems to have lost his smile gene. But just ignore his attitude and enjoy the Coffee and the food. Highly recommended, and an essential when visiting invercargill.More

Great place for a quick fill up, when you feel cold or/& hungry. Parking at the door and food very tasty, several options/choices and great value. Whether you have a 'wrap' or 'plated' kebab, all are most enjoyable with tasty sauces. Bit stingy on napkins......ask for more, likely you will get ONE. Enjoy.More

We reached Invercargill at about 2 pm. I was hoping to get something to eat. Family voted they wanted to eat Kebabs. Googled Kebabs and the closest we could be was Mevlana kebabs. I can say this place has character, has some trivia from turkey,...Mustafa the owner, is an affable guy. The crew were very helpful and I can say it’s a tidy place as well. Coming to the food, we had the pita lunch with lamb Kebab stuffing, a lamb kebab platter, kebab with chips. The one which took the cake was the low carb option for me. Kebab with two types of salads. Served with your choice of sauce/s. To be honest, it was very very good. I also must add that it was value for money. Don’t miss this one if you are looking for a kebab lunch. CheersMore

When my family lived in Invercargill, this was one of our favorites places to get grab a meal. The food is excellent and is won't put a big dent in your wallet either. Everything on the menu is good and prepared quickly.
