2. Döner Haus – Glasgow

Their aim was to bring some of the very best Berlin style food to Glasgow and they’ve achieved that in style. The menu is a mixture of Berlin döner, currywurst, great beers and tasty cocktails.

Our advice? Ignore everything else and zero straight in on the kebab. Either with bread or chips, it is an absolute triumph.

4. German Doner Kebab – Dundee

The Germans know a thing or two about kebabs and this chain has been warmly embraced by locals. They have a huge range of options on the menu but a Berlin doner is their true star.

You can have the kebab meat either as part of a wrap, or loaded onto chips with great sauces on the side. Absolute heaven.

5. Kebab Mahal – Edinburgh

They have been operating for over 30 years so they know a thing or two about making great kebabs. They serve a mixture of Indian, Halal, pizza and kebabs and do so late into the night.

The quality of their skewered meat is what really sets them apart. Fresh, juicy and utterly succulent.

6. Nargile – Aberdeen

Nargile serves a menu of authentic Middle Eastern dishes all freshly prepared using only the freshest local produce. To ensure an authentic flavour in all of their dishes they import many of the herbs and spices.

Their meat is cooked over open flames, which gives it that wonderful charred texture on the outside while being perfectly tender on the inside. Divine.

7. Mezzidakia – Glasgow

Their flavours are inspired from the dishes of Turkey, Morocco, Lebanon, Persia and Greece. It is a real culinary journey through the Eastern Mediterranean.

Their gyros and kebabs are packed full of the finest of ingredients. These kebabs are a step above what you’d get in 90% of other venues; although it is a more fine dining style setting you will still grab them in two hands and devour every single bite.
