What's the deal with that 'kebab doctor' in Zaytoon?

The kebab doctor will see you now.

IF YOU’VE EVER set foot inside Zaytoon, the most important restaurant in Dublin, then you’ve probably noticed this gentleman lurking on their menus.

Yes, that is a doctor examining a kebab with a stethoscope. A kebab doctor, if you will.

A delightfully ludicrous sight.

“The kebab doctor will see you now.”

What’s he looking for? A kebab pulse?

The kebab doctor is beloved by customers with many unable to resist taking a sneaky photo of him.

It’s an instant mood lifter.

Zaytoon told that they were unaware of the kebab doctor’s following until they set up their Instagram account and started noticing comments and photos about Dr. Kebab.

They also explained that they didn’t take or manipulate the photo themselves. Rather, it was just a stock photo.

It was originally a stock photo actually. We bought the royalty for it from a company that designed our posters and large menus.



New goal: track down Dr. Kebab and bring him to Dublin.
