German Doner Kebab (Byres Road West End, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

The Visit

When I stayed in the West End the location for German Doner Kebab was an Indian Restaurant, which I only ever visited once so I was glad to hear that something new was opening in its place.

The West End is a great area and I am happy GDK opened here, as its something different for the area.

The guys asked me to come and take a visit and try some of their food, I have tried their food before the Boss Box which was very very tasty so I was looking forward to tonights visit.

The Food

I knew I wanted to try a few things, and one item was something I wanted to try for a long time.

Doner KRUNCH Burger
Your choice of doner meats, our original burger sauce and Cool Original Doritos chips smothered in a cheese sauce. All served in a brioche bun.

I couldn’t wait to try this, as it looked and sounded VERY good.

This looked good on arrival, and after all needed photos I took a BIG bite!

All the flavours hit at once, with a lovely texture followed by that Doritos crunch.

This was REALLY good!!! I enjoyed every mouth full

My side was the Cheesy Fries

I tried a chip that didn’t have the cheese, and this was very nice….if I say so nicer than some other fast foods chips…but I wont name names. With the cheese was very nice, and very tasty.

My Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Doner Spring Rolls (mix, chicken, beef)
Your choice of doner meats with jalapeños, wrapped in a light crispy pastry.

Spring Rolls in general never look visually good, as its all about the texture and the fillings.

I opted for the mixed meats, as I wanted to see how that would taste.

I took a bite and my mouth exploded with an amazing flavour!!! these were so so so good! I was with my best friend tonight and he agreed that these were really good….I think he was hoping we got ordered one of these each rather than sharing one order….I wish I had now 🙂

It does come with dips, but the flavour of this didn’t need any dips!

Doner Nachos (chicken, beef, mix)
Cool Original Doritos chips with your choice of doner meats, salsa, melted cheese sauce and jalapeños with a dusting of garlic and paprika seasoning.

This was a random last min order, as I wanted to try one more dish just to get an overall feeling to what GDK do.

Nachos are always a nice wee side, or treat when your hungry and you cant really go wrong. The meats for the nacho was again mixed, just to try something different.

On arrival this looked very nice and very appealing to the eyes.

Time to dig in…

This was very messy but very tasty…..for me very similar to the Crunch burger but more messy.

This was finished very fast and we both enjoyed every bite, and the good part was they also gave you finger clothes which were very much needed!! 🙂

Overall :

Firstly a BIG thanks to German Doner Kebab for inviting me tonight.

Tonight’s food was very nice from start to finish, the ones that stood out for me were the Crunch burger and the Spring Rolls.
