Please forgive the slightly more formal tone of this update – and forgive me for getting straight to the point (for once).
Your local kebab shop needs you. And we’re offering to help in some small, but I hope significant way.
Whilst there are many takeaways who will be set-up for business in the immediate future – for instance, they will be on Just Eat, Uber Eats or Deliveroo, there will be those who are not. My fear is that it is the “offline” takeaways, who will remain open for takeaways in line with the Governments announcement that takeaways are permissible, will lose custom as a result – which could in turn result in those businesses being no longer financially viable.
As such, I propose to make a directory – available at shawarmapolice.com/takeaways – and keep it as up to date as I am able to do whilst I have the time available to do so.
To the readers: I ask – if you have any suggestions, recommendations or nominations, please let me know!
To businesses: If you would like to be included, please drop me a line at (no-one did, and we’re back to normal (ish) so for now this has been dropped). Please include all useful information – address, contact information, etc. Full details on the page.
Thank you, and all the very best for the future guys.
Will, Shawarma Police guy.
UPDATE: No-one did get in touch, but hey, the offer was there, and if there’s ever a need to do this again, I’ll happily reactivate this.

Good effort Will Shawarma Police guy – but maybe next time you should do a national TV and radio campaign to make sure the word gets out. Similar to what DFS does each week. You could also pay celebrities like Joe Rogan or Jedward to promote it (they are very influential people with large social media followings). If you are able to get a slot on the Andrew Marr show as well, I think this would be beneficial. I know it will be expensive but you can just start a GoFundMe and put the link on Twitter.
Thanks! I was holding out for an endorsement from Elton Welsby but alas, not as of yet. Who knows what the future holds.
Haha this is brilliant!!! big respect!! I often struggle to find a decent kebab shop that ticks all the boxes …hence stumbling across this blog!!!
I am going to treat myself and my family tonight to a kebab (they often go Chinese but tonight it’s my turn) I haven’t found my little favourite place yet…any suggestions? I live in the east end , not far from town. Delivery would be preferable!
Alas, I’ve not had a chance to swing by the East End for a kebab due to, well, pandemics, and living on the south side I doubt many would deliver!
Of the places I have been to and can recommend, Pasha just off George Square may well deliver to your bit.
