We didn`t expect to find good middle eastern food in the middle of Arizona, but we did. Our waiter was very friendly and answered ingredient questions pleasantly. The food was well prepared and the portions generous. I had lamb and my wife falafel, both enjoyed. we will go back on our next visit.

I've never had any Greek, Turkish or Mediterranean type food before so we thought we would try this place for lunch. The menu's are on the table when you're seated so as I was ordering ,Wendy asked if they had any lunch specials so she brought us a lunch special menu. I went ahead and got the # 33 off... More

Service was great. A belly dancer for entertainment was good. The food was a little of a let down. I think it just was not to our taste buds. (Greek) The meat was dry and chewy but the rice and salad were good. Good to try but not in our book. Sorry

Not allot of atmosphere. But the food was good. Allot to choose from on the menu, several different dishes at our table and every one was happy with their meal. I opted for the basic Gyro, ($7.95) which came with a side of tomatoes,feta, onions and cucumber. Nice, fresh, warm pita bread. Tried the grape leaves, nothing extraordinary, but tasty.... More

We've been coming to this locally owned independent restaurant, most recently just last week. This is authentic cuisine including Jordanian specialties, knowingly prepared with fresh ingredients. The atmosphere is charming with a belly dancer on weekends. This is often crowded so plan on a wait or phone ahead.

My wife and I went there for dinner and enjoyed the food and experience. We went on a Wednesday night and it was about half full. The service was excellent. I had one of the combo plates and it was excellent and my wife had the chicken Sharma (sp?). The portion size was large and the food was excellent. The... More

We have been coming here for over ten years. By far our favorites for the lamb and tomato sauce and chicken shawarma. But their other dishes are all authentic made fresh daily by the owners who very hospitable to all the customers. Small restaurant and family run.

On a recent business trip to Tucson, AZ I stumbled upon this restaurant while running up Broadway. After I finished my run, I freshened up and headed there to eat an early dinner. I arrived at approximately 6 PM and I was immediately seated. It is a small and intimate restaurant that is tastefully decorated with Middle eastern bric-a-brak. They... More

Second review of Shish Kebab House. Wonderfully prepared dishes, food is tasteful, and plentiful. Very well priced. Great service. This restaurant is a perfect gem that awaits your discovery. Good wine and beer selection. The atmosphere is not swanky or the most elegant and the exterior will fool you. The mediterranean food dishes will make your eyes, your sense of... More

Anytime I visit Tucson, I always stop here for a meal. Their food is delicious, portioned huge, and the service is impeccable. I always get the lamb shwarma with motabal. Don't miss out on their tzatziki as well, it's the tastiest I've ever had. If you go on Saturday's they have belly dancers for entertainment. If you have problems with... More
