Doner Deli Abu Dhabi

Doner Deli has now opened their 8th branch in Khalidiya Mall and we are happy to be one of the invited guests to join them on this grand celebration. As usual, it has been my habit NOT to look for information about the places I’m visiting so as not to have any biased or canned reaction. I love to be surprised and know more about the place right then and there.


They have a lot of food samplers available for everyone so that people at the Khalidiya Mall can also try and partake their food offerings on this special day.  I myself am not very familiar about Doner Deli or Doner but I have seen quite a handy sprouting all over Abu Dhabi so that means this is something good. All I know is that some of their sandwiches looks like shawarma.  It’s good that I was able to talk to and interview their very pleasant Marketing Manager Ms. Hend Zeiada and learn more about Doner Deli.


But first things first, what is a doner? Döner kebab (/ˈdɒnər kəˈbæb/, /ˈdoʊnər/; Turkish: döner ordöner kebap, [døˈnɛɾ ˈcebɑp], in English often spelled doner or donner) is a Turkish kebab, made of meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie. … The outer layer is sliced vertically into thin shavings as it cooks.

Here are some snippets of our conversation…

When was Doner Deli established? Doner Deli started in 2014 with their  first branch in Dubai. It’s now their 8th branch here in Khalidiya Mall. They have recently signed with KSA and soon Bahrain. Impressive I must say.

Why Doner Deli? This is something new in the UAE, so we are offering something different, something unique from the traditional shawarma. The recipe itself is unique.

What is special with your doners? Doner Deli is an authentic German Kebab. They have a formula based on a German recipe  that blends the richest flavours, including their famous German pita bread which they have developed to match the growing demands of consumers. Aside from using only the freshest ingredients with the vegetables being home grown and the meat sourced from selected artisan farms in Europe (all 100% Halal guaranteed) – the special sauces are made fresh – every singly day.

Which are your bestsellers? The classic doner pita sandwiches, the doner kebab boxes (not in photo), and my new favorite – the classic durum rolls with feta

I highly recommend Doner Deli if you are looking for fast, healthy and unique kind of meal. Its basically complete with all the fresh veggies in it as well as the best meat available.   As they say, Guten Appetit!
