German Doner Kebab

German Doner Kebab is a fast-casual brand that has created a premium, high quality, approach to traditional kebabs. GDK opened its first restaurant in Berlin in 1989 and spent the next decade developing its products and recipes, creating its own unique blend of spices, innovating its signature sauces and perfecting its distinctive ‘Doner Kebab’ waffle bread. GDK’s gourmet Doner Kebabs are made using only the best premium quality ingredients. To maintain quality and consistency we use lean succulent meats imported directly from Germany, and the freshest locally produced vegetables that are delivered and prepared daily along with our handmade bread. Based in Glasgow, Scotland, the brand has grown at great pace in the UK, Europe and the Middle East and now rapidly expanding in the USA, Canada, Saudi Arabia and Ireland.
