Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Perfect and really huge kebab. Enought choise of pizzas, kebabs and salats. Prise is normal. At the afternoon there is "bufet menu" - pay 10.9 Euro and eat all you want. Good place for fast and cheap lunch.

Nice, clean place. Ok salad, ok keban, chicken, french fries and pizza. Better than RAX. Big plus that you don't need to pay extra of the soda or ice cream! Recommend for lunch.

Always waiting for the kebab moment when coming to Savonlinna! :) Kebab is fresh and crispy, not rubberlike and dry. Definitely a place to try out!

High quality take away. If you want to eat in restaurant, there is large "all you can eat" -menu. Great iskender kebab.

Uskudar Kebab used to be a place to get food every time I visit Savonlinna. I've been a sort of a regular customer since 1990. A few years back one of the owners were working in the restaurant every time I went there. Now the...restaurant had moved to a different location. Neither of the old owners were there. We got the food quickly, but the food is no longer good! Pizzas are a completely different story compared to what they used to be. They now look and taste like pizza in any cheap pizza restaurant in Finland. Yuck. You can get better pizza somewhere else. Pita kebab was a bit better compared to pizza. After taken out of the freezer and getting microwaved the pita bread was doughy. Meat still tastes better compared to many other places but it has a different texture resembling meatloaf and it is more salty than it used to be. They used to have a kebab skewer cooking all the time and cut the meat fresh for each portion. No more. Looks like they take the meat out of the fridge and heat it in big containers. This may be a quicker way but kebab no longer tastes as good as before. Even though Uskudar used to be my absolute favorite restaurant in Savonlinna, considering its current state I'd rather eat somewhere else.More

We were recommended to have a meal there because this is the best kebab in the city. Honestly, we didn't understand, why: 1. the place is dark with wooden tables full of dirty plates 2. The waitress could barely speak English 3. The menu is...mostly varied by adding a pine-apple or peach to any dish. 4. We had to wait about 40 minutes. 5. Along with pine-apple cabbage is every dish in big amount. 6. Meat is extremely spicy! 7. Portions are too big (mostly because of a lot of cabbage) In I overall, we didn't get any satisfaction of food or place. But Finnish seem to like the place, to eat and to take away. There is also a menu on Russian.More

Don't go if you are expecting Turkish kebab - this is kebab for Finns. Same thing with the pizzas, which feature fruit and other un-Italian toppings. The Finns seem to like it, the place is doing so well they have moved to a better location...on Olavinkatu.More

Slow service, but the food is worth for waiting. Dressing is spicy, don't hesitate to ask milder if you are scared.
