Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An absolute JOKE, money down the drain ( or should day, in their pockets ) probably the worst doner ever eaten, dry and tasteless thin strips of God knows what it was , salad not much better, one piece of tomato looked lifeless and 2...slices of cucumber dry, may show 5 star hygiene on the window but after paying the £7.50 for a small lamb doner, as I was waiting I looked around the shop, filthy and tired to say the least, tried the kebab and threw most of it in the bin, never again. Avoid like the plague.More

No one expects a kebab shop to serve the finest cuisine, but atleast we expect a level of passion, enthusiasm, love for one's own culture, to make your ancestors proud. The people at King kebab did not like their acenstors very much

Awful! Awful food. Awful service. Restaurant cannot read an order correctly. Drivers cannot seem to find an address correctly. Apparently reversing on a drive way is a no no… so they drive off WITH OUR FOOD with us chasing them down the road asking them...to stop. The driver then says without hesitation, your order will be incorrect as they can’t get it right anyway! Not a good start… guess what…. The orde is missing several items (as driver predicated). Ring them… apparently no chicken left. We’ll say that please upon ordering. Worse thing about meal was opening an item we did receive to find a long brown hair in it, when we are blond. Vomit in your mooch. The whole experience was disgusting. Disgusting food, disgusting service and disgusting attitude from the restaurant. They apparently found some chicken to deliver to complete rest of order and said they would deliver it immediately. 1 hour later, nothing here. They are liars, they are incompetent, thru are done disgusting providers of food. SO NOT ORDER FROM THEMMore

Awful. After ordering at 8.40, To be told my order would arrive at 9.20, I had to call up at 9.45 to check my delivery. It finally arrived at 10.15 pm. I’ve ordered before a few times, usually Very good curry! But my last order...from this place never arrived! Hence my worry. I don’t like to complain, especially being local and knowing how busy half term can get, but the driver turned up stoned as hell, my curry was clearly forgotten about. The lamb was dry as hell! I’ve always usually enjoyed my meals from the spice centre. Would always 100% recommend as the best Indian in St Ives. After tonight, they have lost my business. The staff that work there are lovely, very polite and do what they can to make sure your orders met, usually. But I won’t be ordering again. Extremely disappointed.More

I had given up on having a decent doner kebab since I moved to Cornwall. I tried another kebab place in another town nearby and I was very disappointed. Then last week I was in St Ives and I looked to see if there were...any kebab houses and there was. It was delicious. I had doner kebab and chips and I asked for chilli sauce (not too much) and some mayonnaise. OMG! I could have eaten it all over again. It was perfect. The doner, the chips, the salad which was really fresh), the right amount of sauce, the green chilli included. I will definitely be going back!More

Donna kebab was so bad it was an insult. Frozen pitta, frozen meat and frozen salad. Dreadful. Only go here if you are paralytic and starving and have lost your taste buds. It’s that bad,!

We went to visit family for the evening as they live in St.Ives. We called in at King Kebab as my husband wanted a kebab. I preferred a large shish mix one with sauces and salad. We got home and he sat and ate the...lot without saying a word. I asked him if he enjoyed it and he said it was the best kebab he had eaten in 30 years! We will look forward to ordering another very soonMore

A takeaway leaflet was pushed through my door a few weeks ago which appeared to indicate there had been a change from the previous setup and they would now be offering a wider range of food including Indian (a particular weakness of mine). I held...on to it as I've had two bad experiences back to back from my previously preferred Indian takeaway (I always give a place a second chance, everyone's entitled to an off night once in a while, particularly under current circumstances) and decided to give it a try tonight. The fact that they offer a decent range of Set Menus for One was definitely a deciding factor but I actually ended up ordering individual dishes as I have what borders on an addiction for Sag Aloo which isn't the included side dish on the Set Menus. Despite the website stating that it would be 45 minutes before they could deliver, my food actually arrived in 15 minutes and was absolutely lovely. The popadoms were perfectly crisp and tasty, the pilau delicately flavoured and cooked to perfection, the chicken still juicy and the sag aloo actually had a little kick to it (so many places make it horribly bland). I wasn't a fan of the previous incarnation of this takeaway but I'm very impressed with tonight's service and food and will definitely be using them again!More
