I used to live a mile from Sphinx. Visited nearly every week. Spot on. I returned after a long time last Tuesday. It has got better. Excellent. Best kebab on chips for sure. Great

Worst food I’ve ever received. I asked for chips and got a salad?? Staff obviously didn’t listen to my order. Absolutely useless for any form of dietary requirements. Staff didn’t care and had no clue about any dishes or dietary issues. Will never be back.

I had a late night large chicken kebab with chips, salad and the famous Sphinx House sauce. 5 large grilled chicken pieces, big juicy chips and delicious salad and sauce and all for £7.75. This was the Glengormley branch.

Beautiful kebab and an amazing house sauce, easy to see why it has so many awards, like anything you get what you pay for and this place is quite pricey but well worth a visit.

The last 4 times that I have went to Sphinx Glengormley I have asked for an Irish Gyro kebab with no lettuce or onions and made sure to say “just the meat chips and sauce.” EVERY single time it has either onions or lots of...More

Reading the really negative reviews on The Sphinx I can only assume it’s slur from jealous competitors....it’s simply the best Kebab shop I’ve ever used....well cooked...generously portioned...extensive menu...very quick delivery!
