We fancied a kebab and found this place. Ended up having the mixed grill as a sit down meal and it was delicious. Tender lamb and moist chicken. What a pleasant surprise. Perfect portions. Great fast and friendly service. Thank you.

They have a menu online. Google YaHala Paddington and go to their website. Trip advisor rules don't allow me to post the link directly.
