5 Reviews for The Lover’s Corner

We have been living in Torbay for the last 5 years – we have ordered takeaways from Lovers Corner over this time.
I have found them to be friendly, clean and great tasting food.
Even after a mix up one time they were more than happy to make the changes without a fuss.
We will continue to use Lovers Corner while still living in the area.

I came here this evening with my daughter as we were looking for something fast, cheap and most importantly healthy.
We ordered the chicken shawerma and the chicken salad.
The orders came out fast, the salad was delicious,the chicken perfect and the dressing was zesty and fresh.
The salad was the perfect size.
The shawerma was huge, fresh and very good.
The hummus that came with both dishes had a great consistency,i could eat more!
They had free hot cardamon tea that came in nice traditional Turkish glasses. We ordered some baklava,it was perfect, not too sweet and went well with the tea.
We will definitely be going back soon.
Our visit was very satisfactory, staff were happy and friendly.

I came to Lover’s Corner after a friend recommended it. I don’t know why they liked it so much. The restaurant inside had flies, and they had no air conditioning. We decided to sit outside as it was only slightly cooler, but we found that our table had not been cleaned, and there were no serviettes outside.

My partner and I ordered two chicken & lamb kebabs and some bread and hummus dip. The bread and hummus was served on a wooden board and was quite lovely (nice touch, hence the extra star) so I thought the rest of the food was going to be good too. However, the kebab I ate was dry and bland. It was as if the chicken had been cooked for far too long, and I could barely taste the lamb. There was too much salad mine, and I could barely taste any sauce, even though there were supposedly three kinds. The only good thought that crossed my mind was, “Well, at least this kebab doesn’t seem to be ridden with fat and salt.” Still, I want my food to be at least tasty.

Overall, my visit was not satisfactory. I expected more; not the world; but more. I’ve had much better kebabs, ones that I won’t be getting from here any time in the near future.

I also never write reviews but feel I had to after eating here. I ordered a chicken and rice $14.00 quite steep. I did not get asked what sauce or salad I wanted just got given what I guess was chili sauce and a white sauce of some description. The male and female working there seemed to argue the whole time and the guy kept yawning over the food. And if you couldn’t guess it was the worst chicken and rice Ive ever had.

I’m not a person to write reviews but on this occasion I had no choice. This has to be the worst kebab I have ever had in my life!!!! We ordered 4 lamb kebabs, all of which had chewy inedible meat, average salad, no flavour wrapped in a chewy pita. At $11 something per kebab, save your money and have cheese on toast at home!
This place will close itself down in 6 months at this rate!!!
