This bustling kebab restaurant is located in a side street off Salamis Yolu but nobody has any
difficulty finding it - it is busy all day until the early hours of morning. And there is a reason
for the this: huge portions of sizzling kebab at unbeatable prices. But also a delicious
range of all sorts of quality foods, impeccable presentation and efficient service. Memoli Restaurant
serves the traditional Turkish doner kebab, meat cooked on a vertical spit and shaved off in thin
slices. Here the meat is actually weighed before being served in a wrap or on a plate. Also on the menu
are chicken shish, chicken wings, Adana kebab, pide and lahmacun. If you are eating inside
in the spacious dining area, you must try the İskender kebab. It is a kind of döner kebab prepared
from thinly cut grilled meat or chicken basted with rich tomato sauce over pieces of pita bread and
generously slathered with melted butter.
Memoli is a softly-spoken young man who rules over the kitchens without raising his voice and
manages to juggle taking telephone orders, shaving off meat slices, checking plates leaving the kitchen
and still finding time for a word with customers. A reputation well-deserved.
