Guangzhou Restaurant Review: Musta Kebab

The Place

Located on Yangji’s main street, Musta Kebab is the newest non-Chinese slash non-fast food entrant. It’s a small shop that we are 75% certain was previously a craft beer bottle shop. The restaurant has bar seating as well as small tables along the side and in the back.

The Food

Musta Kebab offers a limited selection of reasonably priced Turkish food. When we arrive on a Friday night around 9pm, the staff member informs us that only the chicken shish kebab wrap (RMB20) and shawarma wrap (RMB22) were available – not a great start. The wraps were fairly long and tasted good, with a nice mix of chicken, veggies and sauce.


For the price, they are worth an order if you’re in the vicinity and hankering for a quick meal. However, we wish we had the chance to try one of their full meals, which include Turkish rice, salad and baked beans.

We also gave the musta mix kebab box (RMB26) a go, which can come with cheese for an extra RMB2. (They were also out of cheese during our visit.) The box is also solid value, packed with chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives and bread. The unnecessary drizzling of ketchup, mustard and mayo ultimately, however, was a disappointment. Maybe that’s your thing, but for us, it would have been better with authentic Middle Eastern sauces or plain. 


The shop also serves ice lemon tea, red tea and Ayraan (a Turkish yogurt-based drink) as well as a small variety of imported beers, spirits and shisha. 

The Vibe

Musta Kebab doesn’t have much of a vibe, by our assessment. It strikes us as a late-night grub stop that could fill up with any group leaving Xiangzhan Bar or Evening Standard after a few drinks. If you live or work nearby, give it a shot. Otherwise, we wouldn’t recommend traveling a long distance for a meal here.
