We called in on the way back to Auckalnd. Our kebabs were seriously good. The vegetarian option, a Mujver kebab, was on of the best I’ve had. Fast friendly service too. Thoroughly recommended.

Quick easy healthy food. I just love the many raw veggies combined with lamb or chicken and your choice of sauces. Want a little more, try a combo which includes a bowl of fries/chips and a soft drink.
