Kebab Mahal information
Sophisticated it ain’t, but this is the Holy Grail of kebab shops – quality shish kebab and tandoori dishes washed down with chilled lassi for around seven quid. It’s a basic cafeteria-style place with a stainless-steel counter and glaring fluorescent lights, but the menu is 100% halal (the Edinburgh Mosque is just 100m along the road) and the kebabs and curries are authentic and delicious.
