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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I had a chicken kebab salad (takeaway) and it was delicious - a tasty way to get vegetables into a meal while on holiday. I had the small size but it was still too big for one meal so spread it out over two nights....Lovely!More

The food was excellent. The service was efficient. The portions were generous. One of the few places open during the summer holiday.

Great meals in a busy restaurant and excellent value, quick service. As others have mentioned, the service is of a lower standard but this would appear to be the vibe the owners are going for. Food more than made up for it!

Ordered the Adana spicy lamb burger each. Unfortunately it was inedible. There was so much chilli in it, our first mouthful we both choked and our eyes watered. Thinking maybe this was just an imbalance of chill in one part of the mixture, we tried...another mouthful, and the same. We could not eat them at all. Our feedback to the staff was ignored. Both left $60+ worse off and hungry.More

Been here many times and have always had good and fast service even when busy! The food is brilliant and has never tasted anything remotely close anywhere else. The price is decent for the lovely portion sizes that you get. I'm a pretty hungry guy...so the large mixed Iskender meal fills me right up for under $20. If your appetite is not as big as mine then be prepared to grab a huge takeaway box for later :) And did i forget to mention how delicious the meals are with lots of options for sauces!More

We love this Turkish restaurant. We are Iranian Turks who live in Welly and everytime we pass through Palmy, we make sure to pay a visit. Each time we have been, the owners have been super friendly, and the food has been delicious! Would highly...recommend.More

Food was fantastic with generous portion sizes so great value. What was disappointing was having to walk through the dining area and being asked to show a vaccine pass as an after thought. Just seemed their attitude toward the pandemic was not in attendance. We...were visiting from out of town…had travelled through many regions and really felt they could be doing much more quite easily. One waitress was keen to hand us a menu and guide us to a table but it was another waitress that asked to ‘see’ our passes. There was no scanning or confirmation we had checked the QR. Left with the feeling simple things could be so much better - especially when takeaway customers walk through the dining area without doing QR or pass.More

Delicious food and good portions for the price. The ambience is not amazing but the food and price makes up for that. A popular place, so book in advance.

I’d been wanting to try this place for a while now, & the food didn’t disappoint. A large Iskander fed 2 people easily, and was fantastic! From arriving we were seated quickly, but had to ask for wine glasses ourselves, and then had to pour...it once we had sorted clean glasses- a bit odd when the corkage is $5 we thought. When i asked what the corkage covered if we have to get our own glasses and open a bottle etc ourselves, I was told it was standard and was I leaving the wine we hadn’t finished. Even though they were very busy, we didn’t mind as were both former hospo staff so understand the pressures that brings. I will definitely go back as the food was literally amazing, and our meal was at our table within 5mins of ordering, so worth the 20min wait to order I felt.More

I dine here almost every visit I do to Palmerston North. There is parking street side or in the large car park behind the restaurant. The decor suits the food style. It is BYO beer and wine. This is the place to go and fill...up large eaters with healthy full of flavour food. The service is fine and the menu caters for everyone. They are very quick at serving your food. I often have the lamb and beef salad meals and you can choose which sauces you wanted from a large list. On this visit, I did the same. The meals were huge and I could only eat less than half. Everything tasted fresh. Lots to take away for a meal the next day. The Turkish coffee was just right and brewed how I like it. I just wish I could find somewhere as good in Auckland.More

My friend and I visited this restaurant last week and I was very impressed. We had the 'Kapadokya Special'... all our meat was on a sizzling hot plate. Our waitress was Bailee and she was very attentive even getting a cushion for me to sit...on as I'm a bit short! Thanks for a lovely evening. Will see you again!More
