Simply awesome. I have travelled all over the world, and their food, schwarma in particular, is second to none. Over the years they have maintained a very high level of service and consistent food quality. Also the place is still run by the same family. Even though I now no longer live in NZ, I still crave for my schwarma fix like a pregnant woman and thus a very much looked forward to “pit stop” at the middle Eastern ,is now a MUST on each of my visits back home.
Interior is really full of character.
However service is poor poor poor. A waitress has even sworn at me under her breath when I changed tables to get away from the door breeze.
But i keep going back for take away chawarmas!
Firstly the service is very poor. No waiter came to the table and you had to order the food at the counter. An unfriendly lady behind the counter got our order wrong. For drinks she told us to go to the fridge and get them ourselves. The food then came and was not what we ordered. We told the waiter who then took it back to the kitchen and then bought the same dish back to us and told us “what you have ordered is not that much different from what you orginally ordered” with no appology and walked off. We then ate our meal that was then cold and very tastless. We then asked for some servettes as there was none at the table.
Overall this restuarant is CRAP! i would not recommend this restuarant.
