Döner kebab might originate from Turkey, but Berlin made it hip and cool in Helsinki. This origin might also explain both the very hipster-esque interior, as well as why Döner Harju isn’t just another greasy fastfood joint. It’s owned by two chefs who have both previously worked at renowned restaurants in Helsinki, so you can expect a more fresh take on the dish.
You can choose to get your lamb, seitan, chicken or pork kebab either in a sandwich (€ 9) or as a plate (€ 14). The bread at the Döner Harju is crispy, dishes are spiced with herbs and vegetables keep the dishes colourful. The portions fill you up, but not in a way that you feel the need to jog some extra miles for the next two weeks.
Especially during lunch time Döner Harju can get quite busy. For lunch (€ 9.90, Mon – Fri 10:30 – 15:00) you get a döner plate with your choice of protein, a starter soup and coffee.
