Having spent some time living in Germany and Austria I was very excited to try this restaurant. Being a new vegetarian I was nervous that the veggie version of Döner couldn't live up to its meaty counterpart. I'm very glad to say I was wrong....More

I know German Doner and this wasn't it. At first I was disappointed because the salad was fresh and the sauce not quite right. But after I got over my Heimweh I found it to be a pretty good sandwich. Better than most Doner one...More

We had the lamb and beef berliner and it was good. Lamb, veggies and tallboys beer. We would return. They also had chicken sandwiches, salads and desserts.

The closet thing I've had to the delicious Donner you get all over Germany. Bread was a bit different but is very good on it's own. They don't put as much meat in it as in Europe. The ingredients were fresh and price was reasonable....More

Since I live in Pioneer Square, this is a go-to place for me! The food is consistently great and the service even better. I can get in and out in 5min and usually get the "Chicken Fiery Kreuzberg" or the one with lamb & beef....More

We stopped here before the Guns n Roses concert and all four of us were pleased with our choice. I had a wrap with tofu, fat and garlic sauce (it had cilantro in it, which was the selling feature for me). The vegetables were fresh...More

We found this little gem while walking around before a Seahawk's game. We wanted something different while in the city and gave this a go. It was delicious, spicy and fresh. An uneventful dining area, so if looking for upscale dining this is not it....More

This place offers the Turkish Doner Kebab (similar to the Greek Gyro) that you can find all over Germany. The staff here were not the friendliest and seemed annoyed that we didn't know the local ordering lingo. Kebabs were good and prices are reasonable. Indoor...More

My wife and I were walking in Pioneer Square when we came across this place. It was a pleasant surprise. Lamb and beef were excellent. We paid $18 both of us. We got the donor beef wrap and sandwich. Great little restaurant.

My husband lived in Germany for several years and always raved about how much he missed the döner. We spotted this place and it became our go-to lunch spot whenever we were in Seattle for the day. He swears it's the closest he's ever found...More

Hand crafted Turkish-German doner kebab (chicken and lamb), inspired by the famous fast food of Germany, the doner. House made yogurt sauces and marinades, locally baked bread and great salads. Stop by and grab a doner (pronounced doo-nah).
