Come hungry and expect a crowd at Gökyüzü – a sprawling Green Lanes institution renowned for its prodigious kebabs, huge sharing platters and excellent Turkish feasts. Anything skewered from the charcoal grill is worth ordering but do try the minced chicken beyti (we counted 15 pieces!), wrapped in cheese-filled lavash bread, drizzled with butter and served with bulgur wheat, yoghurt and salad. Gökyüzü also has branches in Walthamstow, Kentish Town, Finchley and Chingford.
Kebabs are one of life’s greatest joys. The ideal end-of-the-evening stomach-filler scoffed on the way home from a big night out, they're also at their best enjoyed in a buzzy restaurant dishing out divine Turkish, Persian, Punjabi and Xinjiang or Uyghur cuisine. We've tried and tested the finest of these meaty treats that London has to offer, and here’s a list of our favourites kebab spots for doner, adana and everything in-between.
