We really enjoyed our mixed iskenders (meat, salad, sauces on rice). They were already busy by 6.30pm on a Tuesday night, obviously with many loyal customers. Even though they were busy, the food came out really fast and was delicious.

I work nearby and sometimes get kebabs from this place for lunch / dinner. It's affordable and big enough for two people!

'Akbabas' is a very good option for a quick but tasty and apparently healthy meal at lunch or dinner. Service is always efficient and you can eat in the restaurant or take away. Visited and eaten here many time and I will return again many...More

A long weekend and it's the Monday and not much is open. This place is also a takeaway but sitting down with your kebab is an option. They are delicious. The staff are very friendly and we enjoyed our meal very much
