I hate doing unfavorable reviews but we were so disappointed with this eatery after dining here on the strength of the reviews. We love Turkish cuisine, the Turks and Turkey and we have spent many weeks there over 3 visits in the last few years so we have a pretty good idea on how things should genuinely taste. The food...

We live in Mount and we go there very often. The food is very good and they are very quick. Even if we decide to eat in, the restaurant has a nice atmosphere. My favorite is Iskandar? (rice) dish. We tried a stuffed kumala dish (around $7) and it was very nice too. We like the fact that you can... More

Myself and my fiancé came to this little turkish place during a weekend trip in Tauranga. I got the chicken and falafel salad and she just had chicken. They have a really nice indoor seating area with some outdoor seating also. We opted to sit outside because the weather was so good. Wasn't really expecting much from a kebab place,... More

After reading the reviews we decided we would get dinner from here on a Friday night. It is not the best Turkish restaurant in the area. The salad selection was minimal, not even any Tabbouleh which really influenced the overall flavour. The rice was considerably over cooked. The staff were friendly, our wait was short as they were not that... More

We lobbed in here for dinner because our preferred restaurant was full. The food was tasty, and very plentiful. Order at counter: the service was efficient and friendly. We also bought some Turkish Delight, which was a real disappointment; stick to the main courses. It's not the best place to eat on Maunganui Road, but for quick and plentiful it... More

I had the falafel wrap. The salad was crunchy and fresh and the wrap was warm and a unique taste as was the felafel with a home made wholesome taste.

I really like the chicken salad that comes well served and with three types of sauces. The service is quick and friendly. Besides being a good price meal.

Fast, friendly and delicious! Came here by myself for dinner while in town for work. Had the grilled lamb! Good portion, fresh and tasty! They described the menu which was good as I couldn't decide. Would recommend.

WOW this place was just something different, great customer service, you could see the genuine passion and love for the food by the staff. The food was just divine, you are getting far more than your moneys worth. Super well priced. Just spectacular! Good on you Turkish Delight Cafe, you are certainly a must do.
