Kebab Heaven at Kebab Haven

One of a kind

Kebab Haven in Caboolture Square, Caboolture has a lot going for it. The owner is a one of a kind character, who won't let you walk past without telling you how good his kebabs are. Even his shirt encourages you to 'Try my Kebabs. Beautiful'

He is a real traditional spruker talking up his wares, and he is also not wrong. The kebabs he made for us were meaty and delicious, and a generous size for a reasonable price.

Meaty goodness

Unfortunately what he does lack is a lively location. I'm sure Caboolture Square was once a lively hub, but it currently looks very sad and derelict. Most of the shops around Kebab Haven are empty and you have to explore to find him, away from the only large shop left in the complex. In chatting with him I found out that he does a good trade during the week with local workers in the know. But on weekends I feel like it's his personality that gets people in, and then the taste gets them back. During our chat people started drifting past and he called out and lured them in as well. As the hustle and bustle continued a small crown gathered to order.

Like anything else once something starts to flow if it's any good it gains momentum, but the initial push is needed.

If you live in the area, or are visiting, I encourage you to grab a kebab and a chat, and help keep this local business afloat while the rest of the centre slowly revitalizes (we hope) around him. You won't regret it.
