Some days there's just nothing quite like a great kebab - and Cambridge has some cracking choices

We’re all about some fine dining – but some nights there’s just nothing quite like a good kebab.

Whether you’re a doner meat fan or more of a chicken lover, Cambridge has plenty of places to whet your appetite.

It can be hard to narrow down your choices – so it's always good to have a helping hand.

We've compiled a list of some of the best places to get kebabs in Cambridge according to TripAdvisor – and two of them have even made the finals of the British Kebab Awards.

1. Efes Restaurant

This informal Turkish restaurant serves classic Mediterranean dishes in a busy dining room – and comes top of the list on TripAdvisor.

You can find it on King Street, not far from the King Street Run pub.

Efes is open from 12noon until 2.30pm and 6pm to 11pm Monday to Friday. On weekends, it’s open from 12noon until 11pm.

Address: 78 King Street, Cambridge, CB1 1LN

2. The Gardenia Restaurant

This popular eatery does some of the best fast food around.

In the past, it’s appeared in our 11 great late night takeaways article - and there are so many reasons why we love it.

This Greek restaurant and takeaway opens for ages – 11am until 5am every day, to be exact.

If you're peckish at any hour - it's safe to say it’s probably open.

Let us at that glorious food!

On TripAdvisor, Gardi’s has 136 reviews and is ranked 4 out of 5.

Reviewers say the restaurant has great food at affordable prices – and is massively underrated.

Address: 2 Rose Crescent, Cambridge, CB2 3LL

3. Merhaba Restaurant

This restaurant is also a definite contender for one of the best kebabs – their chef Bektas Avci has even made the shortlist for the 2018 British Kebab Awards.

On TripAdvisor, reviews boast of ‘huge, hot fresh and delicious’ takeaway kebabs.

The Merhaba, which opened in 2013, has 242 reviews and is ranked 4 out of 5.

Even better than that, it’s open 12noon until 12am every day of the week.

Don’t take our word for it, but this place IS great.

Address: East Road, Cambridge, CB1 1BG

4. City Kebab

This eatery boasts “seriously tasty” kebabs, and if you’re close by is definitely worth a visit.

It’s perfect for a quick trip – with big enough portions to make it worth your while.

Opening hours are 12noon until 2am on Sunday – and 12noon until 3.30am every other day of the week.

Address: 73 Regent Street, Cambridge, CB2 1AB

5. Diamond Kebab

OK, so this one on our list IS a kebab van – but it has some seriously good grub.

The Diamond Kebab van also beat thousands of others to be shortlisted for the best kebab van of the year in the British Kebab Awards 2018.

It’s worth a try for a Friday night treat!

This kebab van opens from 5pm to 1am on Friday and Saturday – and 5pm to 3.30am every other day of the week.

We’re game if you are.

Address: 291 Arbury Road, Cambridge

6. Anatolia

This restaurant has an authentic-looking Turkish menu, and a wide selection of meze of which it is clearly very proud.

If you fancy a sit down Turkish meal rather than a takeaway, this is the place for you.

On TripAdvisor Anatolia has 160 reviews – and the reviewers ranked them 3.5 out of 5.

The reviewers say you’ll be welcomed with friendly service and great food.

What’s not to love?!
