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.

Something must have changed. Food and service did not match the old reviews of this restaurant. Kebab was cold and fries were mediocre, was not worth the $19 spent. My first 1 star. Disappointed turkish food lover

Our favourite Turkish restaurant has changed hands and now it's dreadful. Such a shame, this once spotless, clean restaurant where you were warmly welcomed .... the food consistenty delicious and tast is now the complete opposite. The food is bland, cold and well below average....The restaurant floor is stacked with boxes of drinks and produce they either cant fit out back or simply cant be bothered with. When ordering a kebab, surely you choose your own condiments. Not here, they decide for you...too bad if you dont like sweet chili and mayo. We will never return.More

This married couple from Turkey knows how to provide really delicious meals quickly and with a friendly flair. It's almost like you're dining in their family home back in Turkey. Yes, the food is THAT good. Pricing is competitive representing good value for your money.

We love to support Amed and his business. Fresh Turkish food and falafel kebabs are delicious. We think the best kebab shop in Invercargill and think you will too!

The nicest lunch I have had while visiting Invercargill in a long time and very inexpensive. I had a small kebab and it was delicious. We didn't have coffee so I can't comment on that. Nice large table for a family. Very pleasant and helpful...staff. Will come again for sure. Maybe needs a fire place or something to warm up the place. If you are not from Invercargill it's cold here.More

Nice food but setting a bit dated. Ordered a chicken doner kebab. Very nice fresh salad with mayo. I had a regular size and it was more than I needed. Nice staff. Air temp inside a bit cool even tho the sun was out.

Paid parking available right outside if you are lucky enough to get a park. Wheelchair accessible. We visited here for lunch one Sunday and grabbed a couple of lamb kebabs. Friendly staff, comfy atmosphere and nice tasty food all for pretty reasonable prices. Plenty of...seating inside with toilets to the rear as well as a couple of tables outside for those warmer days.More

Wife and I were picking up pizza across the road when I spied this unassuming kebab shop - kebab vs pizza is a lost fight for the pizza but I didn't expect the kebab to be this good. Meat was great, salad selection was fantastic....All in all one of the best donar lamb kebabs I've ever had.More

A La Turka was simply amazing!! Its in the main shopping area and does not look flash from the road however the food is excellent. One of the best restaurants in town! The staff were very friendly. The wait time was usually a matter of...minuets and the food portion sizes are very generous and prices reasonable! We all loved it, there were five of us and we all had something different.More
