'Akbabas' is a very good option for a quick but tasty and apparently healthy meal at lunch or dinner. Service is always efficient and you can eat in the restaurant or take away. Visited and eaten here many time and I will return again many more times.

A long weekend and it's the Monday and not much is open. This place is also a takeaway but sitting down with your kebab is an option. They are delicious. The staff are very friendly and we enjoyed our meal very much

Interesting kebabs. They have quite a lot of veggies and feel much more healthy than the typical kebab. And theyre quite tasty overall, expect for my major gripe - the meat. They have spits rotating meat but they don't prepare the kebabs with that meat, instead they use meat that was previously roasted and has since sat in a bain... More

Quick, great value and very tasty. Right in the heart of Nelson, easy stop while you stroll along Bridge st. We had the chicken and falafel kebab and liked it very much.

If you want a quick and delicious take out then this is the place. Healthy, tasty and affordable kebabs are always great from Akbabas and you can also eat in if you wish.
