Where I used to live it was 20-25kr for a döner (sandwich not talrik) on average, which is around €3 max.
Yes it is, although pizzas and burgers are the same price. Even 10-12 years ago when I started eating kebab the price for a döner in bread was ~€4 and with fries €4.5-5. But it should be noted that this isn't that expensive for us Swedes. If you go to a normal restaurant you will have to pay at least €30/person for just the main course and a glass of wine.

Plenty of Lebanese/middle-eastern restaurants in London do this, all over Edgware Road. Then you have the chicken/lamb shawarmas, lots of chilli and garlic sauce. Place called Taza on Queensway, London, does some messy, greasy, but saucy, really well done shawarmas that are making me fucking drool thinking about it.

Persian cuisine using the similar grill, but different marinades, you have the joojeh chicken kebabs, or koobideh (minced meat lamb/beef) - usually served with lots of rice, grilled tomato and some butter.



This hits the spot every fucking time. Good place called ALounak, in central London, near Bayswater. Great Persian food.

The Turks are really the best though, they do the shish, doner kebabs, grilled meats on their special charcoal grills. Stoke Newington, and Dalston - good Turkish areas on the outskirts of London, you'll find tremendous places.

London is full of kebab shops, all of differing quality, but there's always some place local, always close to a pub or bar.
that's good info for me... i often go to london... this thread values your company... i stay out at a mates place in between balham and tooting bec... plenty of good ethnic food round there... they used to live out just past kilburn tho, and man, there were some good kebab flavours out that way...

that looks top shelf cuisine btw... really nicely put together...

The persians are the originators of kebabs according to wikipedia. But there is one type of Persian Kebab missing from what you listed, and that's the "Barg" Kebab, aka the Filet Mignon Kebab:



Can be hit or miss depending on the quality of the meat. A lot of times it's ordered with a joojeh or koobideh.

Here's another tribute to persian kebabs.

I prefer Persian kabob WAY more and although I like barg and it is more prized generally, I just LOVE the standard kubideh

i've always thought the experience of sinking my teeth into it had a religious bearing.
