This was my first time at the restaurant and I found the food to be delicious and the service to be very good. The rest of my party was running late but the staff kept my iced tea full and brought me bread and butter while I waited. I will definitely recommend and go back. The chicken sultani was great since it gave me a couple of different things. The cucumber and dill yogurt dip was fantastic.

I travel for a living and like to go to restaurants that are recommended to me by locals. We were having a good bye dinner for 5 and wanted someplace special. The food here is fantastic! I wish I had discovered this place before my last night in town. Everything tasted wonderful. The wine list has a variety of choices and the menu makes wine suggestions which is nice. The wait staff were pleasant. If I am ever in the Modesto area again I will return for sure.

The kebab and lula is a must have. The steak is incredibly succulent and the lula is seasoned to perfection.
The rack of lamb is Skewers signature dish and is not to be missed by those who enjoy lamb. Also, make sure you
try the ground barberries on your rice. The flavor of the barberries is exquisite.

Best kebab house in Modesto!
The lamb is to die for, the shish is fork tender, and the Lula is seasoned to perfection. Definitely a must-try restaurant.

The Amazing Skewers
What can I say about Skewers? It never disappoints. From the moment my friend and I arrived to the moment we left, we were greeted by a warm and friendly staff. The food is amazing. I had the filet mingon and my friend had the lula kabob. The meats were tender and juicy. And the rice is beautiful and does not stick together, unlike those Japanese and Chinese restaurants that like to cook it that way. The yogurt drink is out of this world. Why don't more people give it a try is beyond me.

Dinner with Some Unexpected Twist!
We have gone to Skewer's before and will continue to go as the food is not your typical find in Modesto, is well-presented, and very tasty. This time, after a warm greeting from the Hostess and being seated promptly, we ordered a house specialty cocktail which deserves its own Kudos. During dinner, we were pleasantly surprised that a belly-dancer performed. It fit the Mediterranean-style flare that Skewer's advertises. One suggestion would be, as Skewer's is on the cusp of fine dining, that they request that electronics not be used during dinner. This can be done via a simple sign or a comment of the importance of sharing a quality meal with quality time.

Change of Pace Before the Theater
Skewers has a menu that is unique in the Central Valley for its Mediterranean specialties and various types of kabobs. The food and service are excellent. A bonus is that the restaurant is two blocks from the Gallo Center for the Arts so it is convenient for dinner before a concert or performance.

Great Pre-Gallo Dinner House
We came from Stockton. Was late, but we were pleasantly surprised at the attention and hospitality we received. Enjoyed the dinner very much and enjoyed the optional Low-Carb alternatives. Belly Dancing...was unexpected but cultural experience enjoyed by all.
Perfectly close to the Gallo Center... we will be back next trip.. and be on time.

Reservations were easily booked online. Parking (and seating) is minimal so plan time to park and walk. We arrived at 7:30pm on a Saturday and the bar was empty but the restaurant had open tables. We were seated immediately. The decor is clean modern and romantic. The waiter was friendly and knowledeable. A very pretty, youthful belly dancer entertained the dining area while we waited for our food which was served quickly. The dancing was well received and enjoyable, although the music made it difficult to converse. We ordered a chicken kabob dish and a beef kabob dish. Both were tender and flavorful. The generous helping of rice (and a few veggies) was light and non-greasy. Definitely would recommend.

The food was simple but very good! Drinks were priced good and the belly dancer was something different but entertaining. After 10 pm there's a DJ so you can hangout there all evening
