The restaurant also has branches in Jumeirah, Dubai Marina, Al Barsha, and Fujairah. Al Barari is not exactly near where we live, but since it was on the way to where we would be going to later, it was the convenient choice for us. I also heard that there was a playground in front of the restaurant where kids could play, so being a mom, that was a plus.

So what did we find out about doners? Well, according to Executive Chef Louie, this German street food, which comes in chicken or veal, is packed with loads of fresh veggies and served with different tasty sauces, making it much more flavourful. And apparently, only Doner Deli in the UAE serves veal doner kebab.
A minor thing I noticed was there were no plates, so we had to make use of tissue or plastic container covers from the rice and pasta to catch whatever fillings fell from our pita sandwiches or durums. It would have also been nice (presentation-wise) if the desserts were served in plates. But then again, maybe they were served that way because, after all, Doner Deli is more of a casual, fast-food restaurant.
Anyway, overall, we were very satisfied with our experience. The staff were helpful and friendly, service was prompt, and food was delicious. Despite the really big servings, we managed to finish everything. Well, except for my nephew who couldn't eat his half of the Chili Pita and opted to pack it for later.
And now that I've tasted a doner, I'd happily choose this over its Middle East counterpart because it's the more healthier and filling option.
