Try Clarke Quay, there's a kebab place there - Don't ask me what it's called or where exactly it is though!

The place at CQ is called Shiraz - it's on the corner of the Riverwalk and the footbridge. I don't know what London kebabs are like, but if they're anything like Sydney kebabs then you may need two to fill the gap! As I've yet to be in CQ and sober at the same time I have frequented this place often.

There's also a place on the East Coast Park, directly behind Scruffy Murphy's. Again, the kebabs are a bit small. But again, whenever I leave Scruffy's I'm usually in need of something to line the stomach.

As mentioned previously, Arab sector is ok. I've found a decent kebab (called shwarma in this part of town - kebabs are the shish kebab type) at a place called Nasrin (I think) which is at 12 Baghdad St very near to Arab St. They also do a pretty good shisha.

Hey Morton - is the Shiraz you're talking about different from Shiraz the restaurant, also in CQ? Thanks in advance, Mr. P

As you are heading towards the footbridge with the fountain at your back, Shiraz the restaurant is on your right and Shiraz the kebab bar is on your left.

But do they have the hot chilli sauce that makes a drunken kebab truly special?

I think so - plus the garlic sauce to remind you what you ate last night.

I must admit I haven't found a decent kebab place here. it's all dry and no flavour. I want grease on my kebab... helps the alcohol go down and leaves that certain after-taste that you only get with a british donner kebab.

However I haven't been down Little India purely coz I'm never round that way when I've had a few. If anyone has and feels it's got that certain british taste then I'll make the journey.

By the way the kebab place in CQ is awful. It won't be like anything you're used to...
Don't p*ss me off! I am running out of places to hide the bodies.

I salute you Kebab Gurus.

you are truly wise and I will make it my mission to educate myself in the ways of the kebab and report back to you all once I have found the legendary enlightened kebab.

Obi Wan never told you what happened to your kebab did he?
Yes- he did - he told me you ate him.
No Luke - I am your kebab
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Search your feelings Luke - you know it to be true.

Hahaha, I love it! This had made me not only starving, but also wishing I'd had a kebab lastnight to stop my *slight* hangover today. I live near Little India...so if anyone ever wants to meet up to check out the kebab market there...? ;) The thing I really miss is chicken pakora. There was an ace takeaway right near my house in Leeds that I just had to go to every single time I'd had even just 2 pints. Chicken pakora, garlic mayo and chili sauce. Mmmmmm. I'm sure they lost a lot of business when I gave up meat for a few months!

you've got me all nostalgic now - having spent the best part of a decade studying in Leeds and living around the uni we had more kebab shops than I care to remember - woodhouse, hyde park, armley - there was nothing better than stumbling back from a night at Majestix, Rickys, Circus Circus, Planet Earth, Mr Craigs hell even the Ritzy on a Monday Night or the Poly Bop on a wednesday (showing my age now) - and then calling out for a Shandar Kebab - or jumping into Naffees - before getting mugged on the way home :-)
