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.

The best place for dinner in Kerikeri. The food is so good, I always have the Chicken Salad Rice Meal and it's always delicious, fresh and healthy. Tried the lamb, wasn't a fan. The service is great, and quick. The small meal is huge, almost...too much for me, but I eat it anyway. Good sized restaurant for eating in too.More

We eat here 2 or 3 times a week. The food is all prepared onsite, and its fresh, tasty, and quick. The staff are very friendly, and happy to oblige. Their turkish coffee is great, as is the baklava (best ive ever had)…

After a mix up with our dinner booking for a family get together, we were stuck for another venue, when we stumbled across this little gem of a place. OMG, the staff were so awesome, what was supposed to be a party of 40 ended...up being nearly 60 ranging from between 3 months to 60 years. Turkish food was new to a lot of our party, but each and every person thoroughly enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, the staff and most importantly the experience. Every single guest left raving about the night and we will be visiting them again very soon. I highly recommend visiting them.More

I have been to Istanbul Kebabs in Kerikeri quite a number of times now and the food is delicious! I haven't had a disappointing experience there yet! It is my daughter's favourite place to eat, so we're headed there for her birthday dinner tonight!

I asked for chicken and falafel mixed plate it was the moist and tender chicken kebab I ever had. The falafel was fluffy inside and crunchy outside. To be honest, I was a bit reluctant after I saw some bad reviews but I was told...that the ownership was changed and since then, new owners, a couple, donig great job.More
