We have allot of Shawarma places in Bahrain and it is one of the most popular to go food or let say take out food in Bahrain and let admit it, Doner is a Shawarma but as a new concept! I know doner is an old tradition famous food in Turkey but in Bahrain it just arrived and most people here consider it as an expansive Shawarma. I think Doner wraps taste better than Shawarma wraps but is it worth the price difference? You can get one decent Shawarma for 400 Fils while a normal size of a Doner Wrap will cost you around 1.5 BD. Well.. enough with the Shawarma VS Doner Debate.
Doner Restaurants in Bahrain arrived recently before few years. Started with master Doner, then German Doner and other few ones. But they are limited even for a small country such as Bahrain, I remember in Germany you can find a Doner restaurant in every mall! Every street!
Doner Restaurants that I Tried
Today I am gonna list down Doner restaurants in Bahrain the ones that I tried and give you my opinion and what to expect, if you went to Turkey and had Doner their please don’t expect you will get the same taste or quality in Bahrain. Donner in Bahrain is just another to go trend similar to Shawarma or Burgers although allot of fine dining restaurants overseas use Donner for fancy dishes!
Doner Master in Juffair
The first Doner Place in Bahrain, Their doner wrap is delicious and juicy. Recently they added new items to their menu such crispy wrap and some doner dishes but I still prefer the normal Doner Wrap with the usual bread. Their Ayran Leban is delicious but heavy (Sharing Alert). The crispy wrap taste good but too oily! You might handle it! How I would know? Do not buy the Waffle bread Doner Sandwich! It too heavy and you wont taste the Doner! Their place in Juffair convenient and easy to locate. Their Instagram account Donermaster_bh
Donnerci Restaurant in Riffa
A local Doner franchise started in Abu Dhabi – UAE and recently opened their first Branch in Wadi Al Sail mall in Riffa – Bahrain. Simple and reasonably priced, their salad is good, light and nice advised for weight watchers. I like them because their Doner wraps are little bit dry unless you ask them to sauce up the hell out of it! Their food is light but don’t expect a taste similar to Doner Master! You obviously will feel the Doner but its not that tasty in return you will get a light wrap that wont cripple your stomach.
Doner and Gyro in Bahrain as well
The Dubai based restaurant chain are expanding worldwide and recently opened in Bahrain as well, they have a verities of Doner items, I rank them in the middle between Doner Master and Donnerci in term of heaviness and taste. They taste better than Donnerci but less than Doner Master. They serve different kinds of flat breads for the wraps. They even got desert and Pizza Doner! Their salad are nice, they opened 2 Branches in Bahrain, one in Isa town and one in Juffair. Their prices little bit in the high part but trying them for one time won’t harm.
Shreds in Hajyat
A Bahraini Doner restaurant with a sole branch, surprisingly it taste good without injecting yourself with a gallons of oil. Prices are reasonably but don’t expect a huge portions. (No sharing Alert here) They have a few starters worth trying. Their Doner slider is delicious they call it Pocket Doner. Their Doner wrap flat bread is nice you wont find it in the above 3. They are available in Carriage and Talabat. Their Instagram account is Shreds_bh
