The worst fish and chips I have eaten in my 6 years living in Australia. Fish grilled on the same hot plate as the beef and lamb. The small portion of fish tasted of meat and burnt oil. The service was chaotic and we had to beg for a plastic fork, no seasoning was offered or serviettes. I asked for... More

My wife and I have eaten from Makis for the past 24 years..when ever we are in Glenelg. He simply has the best Yiros. The garlic sauce is a bonus. The lamb just melts in your mouth and you know you are tasting great lamb.

We grabbed two Yiros for a quick lunch bite while waiting for the tram to Adelaide and we were very disappointed. The salad wasn't extremely fresh and the meat overdone.

Simply the worst yiros I've ever tried. Wasn't edible. Meat just sits there not even turning. Probably been there since day before. Meats in a tray and reheated. Yiros was cold when served. Spoke to older gentleman behind the counter. Was rude and could not see the problem. Food poisoning waiting to happen!!! DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!!!!
