For some strange reason, i really fancied a donner the other day. I'd had one or two beers and got my better half to drive me to the charcy. I haven't had a donner for bloody years so was really looking forward to it only to be faced with a £6 bill and a kebab that tasted s**t.
Has this place gone down hill or hadn't i had enough to drink ?.
Is Efies any better or shall i stick to my usual Indian eateries ?
I was not a happy ant !!!!!!

What do you expect, not exactly going to be gourmet cuisine is it? I think your theory about not having had enough beer is correct. As for Efes, the two might as well be owned by the same people. As far as I can see, the two have identical prices, almost identical menus and identical food quality. Pizzas are better at Efes. None of this will kill you though so don't worry too much either way.

I occasionally go to the Charky.But I never order a donner...I saw a programme about mechanically reclaimed meat and amongst other delectables (think turkey twizzlers) this mush is made into the donner ''elephant trunk'...So I always order the lamb cube donner,with mushrooms and onions,shaslik is it? Anyway,they are always nice,and the fact that the charky now make their own flatbreads makes a huge difference.
I haven't been for a while though...

I used to love a doner, in fact as a teenager would sometimes order two at a time. But those days are long gone, the health police have put me off. And have you seen the price of Clearasil nowadays?

You can't beat a good shish though, real lovely lamb meat, all the salad, and the CG do excellent flatbreads. Recommended for a filling meal any time. And a houmous and salad kebab for when you're in need of something unmeaty. Mmmmm.

I don't like the Efes' wooden stair rods.

I fancied a Donner last night but I could only find a Charlotte. She did the business though. And she took the sticky side after!

You need to be seriously p*ssed to eat a doner. I used to love them, but one night my wife took a photo of me eating a doner with bits of meat and onions spilling down my shirt and when I saw the photo it made me realise how sordid the whole thing was.

Years later I discovered what they do to your insides and now I'm past the age where I can get away with eating crap, I haven't touched doners.

On the other hand, you can't beat a shish kebab from the Charcoal Grill - lovely stuff.

On the subject of kebab places, has anyone ever had one of those doughnut things? I've never fancied them, but I presume that some people must eat them.
