A taste of Berlin comes to Manchester with Döner Haus

SAM | 19th October 2019

Corn Exchange Manchester has confirmed Döner Haus as the newest addition to its eclectic dining offering.


Set to open later this year, the huge restaurant will serve Berlin-inspired quality kebabs and other German classics, alongside beers and cocktails.


The 180-cover restaurant will take over the former Byron site in the iconic Grade II listed city centre building, which faces onto Cathedral Gardens and includes dining space in the atrium. The first-floor space will also be transformed into a stylish bar area.


Kebabs start at £7.70 and are served on sourdough fladenbrot, with other dishes including flatbread, schnitzel and a foot-long frankfurter or bratwurst. Vegan options include falafel bites, a vegan schnitzel and a veganwurst.

This will be the second site for Döner Haus, which currently has a popular restaurant in Glasgow.


Sanjeev Sanghera, founder of Döner Haus, said: “It’s been found that in the UK doner is sometimes only as little as 25% meat, and that’s not what we’re about at all. Our meat content is extremely high, there’s no oil or wheat to fill it up.


“The best kebabs in the world are in Berlin. So we went over there – it was our first proper time off in about three years of working 100 hour weeks – and it just changed our lives. It completely changed our whole journey.


“In Berlin people order them as often and in the same way we order sandwiches.”

Liam Mooney, General Manager of Corn Exchange Manchester, commented: “We look forward to welcoming Döner Haus to Corn Exchange. We pride ourselves on our quality dining offering and the variety of cuisines from across the globe really does offer something for everyone. Döner Haus will bring something new to the mix and I’m sure they will fit right in!”
