There is always something newly imported from Turkey to buy at the butchery - and the restaurant is right next door. I've tried many exotic types of Turkish delight and flavoured teas and the cheese and meat is great quality.

From the iskender through to the roti, this is one of the best meals you can have in Johannesburg. The food is always top quality, consistently tasty and fresh, and it's absolutely delicious. I recommend going to the butchery next door, too - they sell everything from meat and cheese to Turkish delight and apple tea.

Usually we stop here for a bit of Turkish food and to stock up on beef salami. I was rather disappointed this time as the shelves were practically empty. We ordered two kebab dishes as well and these took very long. The business seems to have changed its name to Turkish Butcher as well

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Johannesburg, bit today I hosted 10 guests and the poor service was really too irritating. It just seems to get worse every time? The food is still incredible - rather do take-out! And why does a restaurant not even have ice available for drinks?

The Turkish Kebab House is in Mayfair, a perfectly safe area. Tru the mixed grill (for 2 people) or the Iskender, incredible food!

This authentic Turkish owned kebab restaurant is a hit with my family here in Johannesburg. Unlike in Europe, where Turkish kebab houses are common, they're not very popular in Joburg. If you're a European looking for that traditional Doner Kebab experience you'll find it here. Family friendly, clean, super fast service. Highly recommended. Based in Mayfair, a Muslim quarter of...

By far the most authentic and decadent dessert I've ever had since my life. A crispy crust with bust of moist flavour full core. If you find your self in Johannesburg just go there and indulge. They have had three different flavours, Pistachio, Walnut and Crème.

They have renovated the Turkish Kebab House since our last visit, have removed the pizza oven from inside the restaurant. This does limit the menu somewhat but the food seemed even better than before. There is also a great selection of cold starters for vegetarians, we had a large plate for R25! Hint: ask for the Künefe cheese dessert, it... More
