In Bacchus Marsh, there are no shortages of take-away stores. In fact there is 4 pizzerias, 4 fish and chip shops, 2 Chinese restaurants, 3 pubs (one of them being O'Flanagans Border Inn, an Irish Tavern bedecked in all it's Celtic glory) but only one kebab store. Before CJ's Café Kebabs opened up across from Far West Pizza, the only place offering kebabs nearby was a slightly suspicious-looking Kebab-Caravan that operated over at the Food-Works Petrol station, but it was sometimes a hit-a-miss. But it was either that or drive all the way to Footscray (though Cheeky Kebabs in Sunbury are also very good).

What they have available:
Kebabs – Lamb ($8.00), Chicken ($8.50), mixed ($8.50), Hawaiian ($9.50) and Felafel ($7.50)
Take-Away Meat in a container – A little self-explanatory; they come in small, medium, and large.
Twin Pack – 2 lamb kebabs, 1 pack of regular chips, 2 cans of soft drink ($22)
Mix Container – traditional Turkish rice, sliced lamb or chicken, 2 dips of choice, mix salad and toasted Turkish bread ($15)

Iskender – Lamb off the spit served on diced Turkish bread, with homemade tomato paste, cooked in the oven, then garnished with yoghurt and parsley (Small is $14 and a Large is $17)

Tutku – cookies with soft chocolate filling, which are lovely with tea or coffee
Turkish Delight – there is the traditional kind, but sometimes they have a variation of adding pistachios and coating them in desiccated coconut instead

Now I have always enjoyed the traditional chicken kebab (with lettuce and tomato), however I've recently become a big fan of the Iskender, as I've always had a personal preference for tomato-based sauces over crème sauces. The food is usually always delicious, cheap and the staff are friendly and accommodating. The inside of the café does have a few tables available, but it is quite small, however there is outside seating as well.
