By having a great selection of sauces etc just adds to the flavour of the standard fillings. Ilike the fact you can add or take away what suits

Decent but not wonderful. All food is $$$ in NZ and at about $10 US funds a lamb kabob with sauces, this is average.

Love the kebab, have been here a couple of times now and the food is always nice and fresh, and the staff is friendly. And the lamb is real lamb, not some mince lamb that you get at some other places..

Brilliant for a feed if you don't want the restaurant style. Food is fresh and tasty, Susie & Kim are delightful to deal with. Ideal for a casual & cheap dining experience.

Beautiful kebabs, excellent chips and friendly, helpful staff. The only thing we didn't enjoy was the aioli served with the fries. It is not good. Would like to see that changed, otherwise I highly recommend everything else here.

Thank you very much for your patronage and kind words. We will be recheckeing our Aioli recipe as this is one of our own made sauces. We really appreciate your constructive comments.

I'm usually such a fussy person but that didn't matter to the lovely staff at charcoal Pitt. They let me change around my fillings with no extra charge and hassle. Often go to Anatolias for kebabs and was nervous to try these but they were...More
