Award-winning kebab shop that does a killer mixed grill. Expect a rowdy queue after the pubs kick out at weekends

The best thing about this kebab shop is that you don’t need to be hammered to enjoy the grub they’re dishing out.

While there’s a table service restaurant hidden at the back, most don’t get further than the takeout counter at the front. This is where you’ll get value for money: food that’s tastier eaten off your lap or whilst walking home than it is on a plate with a knife and fork. Up front you can still order their unctuous vegetarian moussaka, muska borek (deep-fried, pastry-coated cheese) and traditional sucuk (spicy Turkish sausage). That’s not to say you will – the standard meat-in-bread options are just too good. Don’t just get donner meat though: their king-size mix – that’s shish kebab, kofte, minced chicken and donner meat – is the stuff of legends (and, we imagine, some serious heartburn).

It’s open till midnight most nights and 1.30am on a Saturday. As you might expect, this joint gets busy so head here early if patience ain’t your virtue. Either way, it’s worth the wait.
