Since you've posted this in the Food forum I'll recommend the kebab recipe in the Cooking Club, which is the nicest I've ever tasted. In case you want to try making them yourself

https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/show...p?t=2057395904


I'm moving this to the Dublin city forum now though because it's better suited to there, you're more likely to get replies from people in the region.

Agree that chip shop kebabs are awful stuff, the Italian chippers dont put any effort into them whatsoever. I dont know why they even sell them.

But if you think you cant get a good kebab in Dublin then take another look as things have changed in the last couple of years. As mentioned Pasha and Passion4Food both putting out excellent food. The chicken shish in Passion4Food is marinated in yogurt, lemon and saffron and is divine. Zaytoon still there too but the other too are a level above imo. Havent tried the new place Reyna on Dame Street yet but friends have and recommend it too.

Yeah zaytoon are not as good as they used to be. Havent had pasha but passion 4 food and even the shwarma company were better

I had a lamb kebab delivered from fayrouz on cork st during the lockdow. ITs a lebanese place and was different...they gave me 3 mini kebabs rather than one big one, and containers with the mrat,salad,amd sauces. Had to wrap it myself but it was tasty, would go back to get one and eatin rather than deliver

Chipper kebabs are a totally different food to me, I can fully see why they sell, just as I understand why mcdonalds double cheeseburgers sell, yet would be ridiculed in a "best burger in dublin" thread. They are often the only spicyish thing on the chipper menu and cheaper than kebab houses. Its bigger than a quarter pounder (or should be!) and I do not like most half pounders in chippers so good if you want something bigger. You can also get chicken fillet kebabs, some will use crap but some have proper pressure fried chicken floured on the premises. I would get a kebab tray over a kebab in a chipper.

Zaytoons started doing kebab trays but point blank refused to give salad with it, even though loads of customers were requesting it on social media. Very odd goings on, they were borderline abusive to people who were simply asking.

IN the best burger thread, McDonalds comes up sometimes, as its just what people want now and again

I tried Reyna (formerly Iskanders) recently..really worth a shot. Virtually identical to the likes of P4P and Pasha.

I'm still surprised that nobody ever mentions Falafel in temple bar.
