What’s not to love about a place like this. Great value, tasty food and servings so large and generous that you’ll be full for a week.
New Star is located in the heart of Auburn’s main strip serving up a range of Turkish food for the masses. Look out for the street frontage windows, one showcasing the huge pizzas and pide, the other showcasing the skewers cooking over hot coals, doing a great job of enticing passers by.
We knew this place was going to be good, the fact that it was extremely busy is no doubt a dead give away. New Star Kebab is a family run restaurant, and a local institution, which has been run by Atilla Tok for over 25 years (the family for 40) and the family consider food being like art, both of which the staff are passionate about.
All products are Halal, with produce sourced fresh from small farmers and meat manufacturers to ensure you are in for a high quality Turkish feed.
We arrived ready for a Turkish feast and to say the potions are huge, is an understatement. A basket of freshly baked Turkish Bread is complimentary and great for dipping or mopping up any sauce. We had this with a colourful mixed dips platter, full of classics; Babaganush, hummus, Tzatziki and a spicy dip, all very tasty and boy was the spicy dip packing plenty of heat.
The Iskender dip plate is similar to a snack pack, but with a mountain of fine slices of Doner kebab meat served on a layer of Turkish bread, then smothered with yoghurt and their special red sauce. So saucy and oh so good!
Our favorite was the mixed shish plate, with meat nicely cooked over open flame, infusing it with a lovely charcoal flavour; chicken, lamb and beef served with tomato, red cabbage, onion, roast hot chili, lemon and more Turkish bread.
The Falafel plate with salad, a great healthy choice and one for the vegetarians. The are perfect, light and fluffy inside and a crispy outer core.
The Sucuklu pide (Turkish sausage, egg, cheese) always a go to and the New Star version is up there with the best, with plenty of topping and the ever tasty sucuklu sausage in particular.
New Star have something for everyone’s favourite Gozleme, Turkish savoury crepes.
They have all your other key menu items from vine leaves to kofte, Adana kebab plates, and doner kebab rolls
We loved our visit for its great value, tasty food and servings so generous, you’ll need to bring the family. It’s worth it!
