Popular kebab shop named among Scotland’s best restaurants by food critic

A POPULAR kebab shop has been named among some of Scotland’s best restaurants by a top food critic.

The Times‘ Alba restaurant critic Chitra Ramaswamy compiled a list of her favourite spots to eat in Glasgow.

Several west end restaurants made the top 10 best eateries including Shucks, Five March and Stravaigin.

But a kebab shop in the city has also made the list.

Shawarma King, situated under a railway bridge on King Street, serves up Middle Eastern staples such as falafel and kebab to hungry punters.

Most of the dishes on offer cost around £5 to £7, nothing on the menu costs more than £9.50.

Chitra says the falafel is “flawless” and the chicken shawarma “is equally memorable”.

But it is “only eclipsed by an outrageously good Kurdish lamb kebab”.

Earlier this year, the business scooped the Best Kebab House in Scotland accolade at this year’s British Kebab Awards in London.

After winning the title for the second year in a row, bosses have now opened up a second branch.

The new venue is in the west end of Glasgow and is situated on Paisley Road.

Recently we told how a food-obsessed TikToker hopped a flight from Ireland to Glasgow just to try a kebab from Shawarma King.

In a viral video, he revealed that he booked the first flight to the city to try two of the team’s best kebabs.

Rating the two dishes, Today We Are Making gave the lamb shawarma a 9.6 out of 10 while the chicken shawarma scored a perfect 10 out of 10.
