Ordered the 5pc lamb chops for £9.50 and it was yummy and cheap! Well worth it if you like lamb chops. Located on the main road and adjacent to the Chalk Farm tube station near Camden high street. They've more seating on the inner side if you've large group going. Staff were friendly and efficient.

Ordered online, as I did before, the exact same order. 1 chicken kebab (with salad, no red cabbage, no green chilli, without sauce) and another chicken kebab (no tomato, no cucumber, no red cabbage, no green chilli, without salad, without sauce). What I got was 1 chicken kebab covered in sauce and other one with salad and covered in chilli.... More

This place is great if you are really hungry and want to eat huge and delicious portions without getting ripped off (as it is often the case in the restaurant industry). We had a chicken wrap and a marathon dish (indeed !!) everything was excellent. If you are in Camden High street it really deserves a visit.

I stay nearby so this is my go to place for kebabs. I used to get the pita but the bread increasingly became like an afterthought. Go with the wrap with chili and garlic sauce. Delicious!

These guys are the best. They always cook the fish while I wait. And they are always generous with portions. I've been going there for my fish 'n' chips for15 years.

I have been a customer of Marathon's for over 20 years. It's had some bad times and it's had great times. Well since moving out of Camden I hadn't had a kebab from Marathons for around 4 years, however a couple of months ago when visiting family i thought i'd give it a go. Well i was more than happy!...

Serves great kebabs and chips etc. Great for late night drinking in Camden! Lively atmosphere and they sometimes have life music.
