Takeaways

Recommended Posts

"My local takeaway is the best etc..." Gies yer takeaway recommendations, nae healthy stuff or sushi that can f**k right off. 

Could do with some decent takeaway advice for Edinburgh city, west end, live here most of the time now, can't find decent takeaways, mostly all shite, hugely disappointing. 

Wouldn't mind scranning a kebab tonight if anyone can recommend one that's close to edible? Don't mind driving a few miles if the city centre is just generally pish and you need to go to a wee outskirts place for a good one.

Don't get anything from [insert name of local takeaway shop] they got caught [wanking into the pakora sauce/killing cats in the back alley for the chicken curry/running an ISIS cell]*

That should cover it.

Haven’t had an acceptable Chinese takeaway in years. Indian or Pizza/Chippy takeaways are by far superior.

The best kebab I have ever had in Edinburgh was from Kebab Mahal. Outstanding.

Cheers ma man, was that recently? Google has it at 4.1 stars so low chances of the shits and walking distance from me, could be a winner.

Agacan Dundee.

Worth the drive.

Smidge further than I wanted to drive, but appreciated.

Walking distance? You lucky b*****d! No it was a while ago unfortunately. If you decide to try it let me know if it was good though! Seriously, best kebab I've eaten in the UK. Got a sit in bit as well.

Well it's about a mile or so, but easy walking distance. Buzzing for this now, missing my usual kebab shop in Glasgow and the substitutes here are less than poor.

Would agree with this, although it's been a good couple of years since I've been there.

Taste of China on Gilmore Place in Edinburgh is pretty good. They do nice BBQ spare ribs as well as mussels in black bean sauce. Singapore chow mein too!

There was a restaurant I was at last week where I had a wonderful pizza and they also do takeaway.

Sorry I can't help with kebabs - not had one for about 17 years (though it was a decent chicken kebab from a shop on Bow Road, London and the lady let me smoke in her shop) but for general fast food around here...

So Good - Chinese on Dundee terrace - very good.
Jashan's - Indian on Slateford Rd - also very good 
Fountainpark Fry (oposite Cineworld) - decent chippy/pizzas
Salvatore's - Chippy on Roseneath St, Marchmont - old school Italian chippy/cafe. Decent for a sit down fish & chips.

Cheers ma man, needed a decent Chinese as well, last two i've tried were horrendous. Chicken satay tasted like it had been cooked and cooled about three times, kicked about the floor and then cooked again for good measure.

There's also Tastes Good a bit further out along Slateford Road. It looks fancier but I really don't rate the food - style over substance.

People who buy takeaways instead of cooking are fucking crackpots who should be locked up in an underground bunker and fed rice and stale goats cheese.

Best kebab I have ever had in the UK was down in Dover, but even that was nothing compared to the kebabs in Berlin and Portugal. They have actual meat in them and not the bits of reconstituted dead elephant leg that they put in kebabs here.

Granted it's been 4 years since I was last there but Palmyra on Nicholson Street had the best kebabs imo

Just so I'm clear:

Buying takeaway food = bad

Cutting your own hair = good

Did you get dropped on your head as a child?

So by your own admission then you should be locked in a bunker and fed rice and stale goats cheese...
