Walking along Granville St trying to figure out what to do about dinner. Place seemed clean and well maintained (ie. clean, friendly staff). Couldn't decide bet the lamb or chicken donair. Went with chicken/lamb mix. Large portion, fresh topics and great taste.

Hubby fancied a kebab so we toddled around the corner from our hotel to satisfy his hunger! Portion sizes were huge and he could not eat it all. He said it was just OK but nothing extra special. Lots of various vegetable/ fruit additions to go in it plus mild to hot sauces.

Over a 3 day weekend I tried this place twice. The donairs are so large its sometimes perfect to split. They had beef and chicken, they close them off with another pita and then onto the Panini press. No leakage, like a small football, so good.

We needed a quick meal and decided to see what the fuss was about at Donair Dude. Since it opened on Lonsdale this place has experienced heavy traffic so we joined the queue and went in. I was quite surprised - very healthy choices, large servings and overall reasonable prices. The staff was friendly, helpful and patient. I will gladly... More

They just opened this restaurant on 17th & Lonsdale in North Vancouver. I ordered Chicken Donair Rice Plate ($10.99). It came with rice, 2 dolmades, and tabouli salad, tzatziki sauce and pitta bread. Instead of dolmades, I could replace them with falafel. It was nice. All the food selection and sauce were nice but too bad, I thought chicken was... More

We didn't feel like going to a restaurant and decided to walk around for a quick bite to take into our hotel and stumbled upon this place. We ordered the chicken plate which came with a lot of meat over rice and 2 sides, they also put some hummus, and garlic spread into a pita n grilled it. I picked... More

If you like donair, this is the place to be! Numerous options/combinations and a friendly staff. They are open until 3am, so a great stop for a post-bar snack or early breakfast.

Neighbourhood Profile
Davie Village
Davie Village is the vital LGBTQ heart of Vancouver. It is the only like area in the world to have a permanent four-way rainbow crosswalk, to symbolise the city's solidarity with many of the businesses, ranging from bars to bookstores, that keep the area vibrant. By day, it is a people-watching stop, with fantastic boutique cafes, but at night is when it really shines, humming with neon lights and nightclub music inside many of the hip and trendy bars and dance halls. The area is diverse and welcoming, and its supportive community makes for a tight-knit group of independent and creative shops.
