This looks like just another kebab joint but Elif kebabs are the real deal. Delicious marinated charcoal grilled meat in flatbread, yum yum. They also have standard doner and cheesy chips etc but don't be deceived, the kebabs are excellent. My food-loving father was rather spiffy when we suggested it for takeaway but is a convert.

Thank Ington

I had chicken and kofte combo kebab and to be fair the meat was spot on, tender and juicy with the charcoal grill taste. The only thing to let it down was the portion size, 8 quid for a large kebab with about 5 chicken cubes and half a strip of kofte.

Ordered take tonight. Took 1 and half hours. I was lied to twice about the driver setting off. When arrived food was cold as unpacked it. Was told they were busy and refused refund. Wouldn't recommend unless you want to pay £30 for cold food after an and a half

Take away kebabs in pitta. Meat rarely tough, usually tender and always done to perfection. I go regularly. They also do pizzas but I have never tried them.

Delicious fresh marinated chicken breast cubes cooked on a charcoal BBQ skewer with chilli or garlic sauce and salad wrapped in a freshly made flatbread (I have it without the bread as I'm gluten free). Small is £4.95 Large is £6.95. Ymmmmm I love this place. Guilty secret visit after the gym for healthy tasty food, I phone as I'm... More

Take away kebab shops don't tend to have a good reputation, probably with good reason in many cases. This is the only one I use and when I have been in the shop itself I have always been impressed with the cleanliness. I have ordered from here a few times each year for several years and have almost always been... More

Not been here for a long time. We fancied a take away and thought we'd try it again as we used to love it. We moved further away and hadn't been for several years. We were not disappointed. The small Doner is easily big enough. Delicious, as we have always found. I don't understand the poor reviews. I know a... More

Tasted ok but the portions were ridiculously small and over priced for what you get. I wont be going back

I get a kebab for tea once per week usually -cant beat this place. There is the occasional tough lump but recommended. Chips good too. Nice guys - nice family. And opposite the very popular Pointing Dog.

Felt lazy yesterday and got a small shish from here, I had it to takeaway and was looking forward to tucking in when I got home. When I opened the box I found 5 bits of meat on a soggy piece of bread because they had put the salad underneath the bread. Niow this cost me £5, yes £5!! there... More
