The food was delicious, salad on the side were very generous and service was exceptional. We had the chicken on rice, chicken and felafal on salad and mixed plate on chips. Best food in Thames.

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.

Consistently good kebabs, koftas etc. Buy from here regularly. Reasonably priced and clean. You watch them make your meal. Also have Turkish delight. Abit of Turkish décor around the walls. Good fast food so worth the stop.

Hi. There is one on Pollen Street Thames. The kebabs are delicious. I am not sure if there are any other kebab outlets on the Coromandel Peninsula.
