  • “Great service, variety, and welcoming feeling.”

  • “Yekta Kabobi has the best stuffed grape leaves on the planet. A work of art. We went to Greece and Turkey last year and there was not one stuffed grape leaves dish that was within miles of yours. Also, the grilled marinated cornish game hen kabobs are incredible. It is so pleasant to eat in the restaurant with the big dome and wonderful food. My deepest respect to you all for an absolutely wonderful place.

  • “The best kebob place in the area!”
