about us

We are proud to serve you one of the healthiest and most well-balanced Turkish and Mediterranean Halal food in Johannesburg. Our dishes are prepared freshly upon order, using authentic recipes, traditional cooking methods with finest ingredients. Since the day we opened our doors for business, we have worked hard to earn a reputation of providing the highest quality of service available.

Turkey, geo-physically located as a bridge between Europe and Asia, has been a melting pot of many civilizations since the beginning of history.  Therefore, Turkish food is a true fusion of many different cultures and a collage of different cuisines.

Today’s Turkish cuisine is a fusion of Turkic, Ottoman, Greek, Persian and Arabic cooking that can be defined as a true and unique Mediterranean food experience. 

Turkish food, as most Mediterranean food, relies heavily on appetizers called “mezes” and especially the freshest of ingredients.  Although it has many meat specialties, it offers a perfect combination of vegetarian and meat dishes.

Istanbul Kebab is dedicated to providing professional, warm welcoming service.  Food and atmosphere is far out-shadowed by superior customer service that turns our new customers into repeat customers. Great service is a top priority and one of the most important aspects of our restaurant; our food will be served fresh and hot, every time. 

The management team expects the wait-staff provide the very best in quality service to our customers, making certain that they are content and satisfied with their dining experience.
