Giving Donair a Good Name
Since opening in the summer of 2009, Donair Town on Commercial Drive has developed a regular clientele. Donair shops don’t always have a good rep for freshness, but here you can be certain that the meats, vegetables and sauces haven’t been languishing past their sell-by dates. Everything is prepared daily. Plus the place is clean, bright and cheerful, if small. There is no seating, just a wall counter suitable for a quick nosh while shopping or taking a break from work. Locals like it.
Basic Fare with A Twist
Donair Town serves up inexpensive, tasty beef, chicken and lamb items, including shawarma and falafel. A specialty is the lamb dinner, which comes in a variety of styles: traditional Middle Eastern, Greek, Caribbean and Mexican. This reflects the neighbourhood’s cultural diversity.
It Must Be Good
There is rarely a lull at Donair Town, which indicates the eatery’s popularity. Local blogs give the place two thumbs up. The service is friendly, and the ambience down to earth.
