THE LUXURY DONER KEBAB DONE RIGHT AT GERMAN DONER KEBAB IN CROYDON

No comments:

I couldn't believe my eyes when I set my eyes on this little gem.


The hidden truth is that I had tried delivery from GDK (German Doner Kebab) in another country. Let me tell you that if the delivery was amazing, eating in would have been even more divine.

The German Doner Kebab I visited is situated in Croydon.

German Doner Kebab does gourmet kebabs with only the premium lean meats, signitature sauces and freshly baked breads.


Yet again, there is always that fear that franchises vary between countries possibly due to different ingredient suppliers.

As you can see it's theme is a modern shiny black with their signature orange which already makes it stand out as you pass by.

The theme is consistent throughout, starting from the decor to the actual wrapping of the food.

The place is not big at all, let's say that it's more of a cozy little venue for a quick and scrumptious bite.

The best part about it is that everything screams quality!

HOW ORDERING WORKS?

You simply have to go to the tills and order what you wish.

The order is then meticulously prepared and brought to your table.

THE MENU


The menu includes simple options! I find that simple menus are always the best as it means they can focus on those dishes rather than being over swamped by too much variation.

You can order a meal which includes the doner, chips and a drink or just order the sandwich with a drink instead.

German Doner Kebab also offer a small size doners for those that prefer smaller portions as well as open box options.

When you order your doner premium type, you have the option of getting a chicken one, a meat or a mix of the two.


There is also a great choice of appetizers and sides.

OUR ORDER


We couldn't resist ordering their Doner burger. You could tell the bread was golden and fluffy. Literally irresistible.

Everything was cooked to perfection, the doner was moist and not drenched in oil.


I also had, feta cheese added to my burger which have it even more flavour.

The presentation speaks for itself. They got thetpresentation on point.

The food looks beautiful and scrumptious.

The best part of it all is that it tasted so delicious.

I am currently reminiscing the flavours and textures of this succulent burger.


The fries were cooked to perfection.

Everything tastes freshly made and even the bread tastes just baked.


The staff is very professional and eventhough we really took our time no one rushed us.

THE FINAL VERDICT


I am so excited to announce that German Doner Kebab is a hot spot for a luxurious kebab.


If you are not into greasy kebabs this is the kebab House for you.

Eventhough the concept of the place is very much like that of a fast food at least it's a luxury one.

German Doner Kebab have nailed the meaning of the perfect kebab.


Their kebab is sensational and the place does it justice too. Starting from the decor to the presentation and packaging of the food,it's definitely high on my list of favourite places to eat.

Their kebabs are definitely Instagrammable and that can also be part of the new generation deciding factor for eating at a place.


German Doner Kebab also do delivery through Uber eats and deliveroo.

They have over 30 upcoming eateries opening in the UK so the whole of the UK is in for a treat.

Have you tried The German Doner Kebab chain? if so how was it?


MY UNDERWHELMING AFTERNOON TEA EXPERIENCE AT THE GRAND LONDON IN PICCADILLY

3 comments:
It's been long due, it was time to meet a dear friend and she suggested we go to The Grand London in Piccadilly for an afternoon tea experience. 

I was besotted when we reached the place and found how beautifully decorated it was for this Christmas season.


The windows and entrance of The Grand London were so majestically put together that if you were just passing by , you would be enticed to enter.

MY UNDERWHELMING AFTERNOON TEA EXPERIENCE AT THE GRAND LONDON IN PICCADILLY

It had the typical Christmas feel you would see in an upscale New York Michelin star restaurant.

I was so excited in a way because I love a great afternoon tea experience.


Me and my friend had a lot to talk about so this was the perfect location or so it seemed.

The place was quite busy and I was honestly surprised we were seated right away.

MY UNDERWHELMING AFTERNOON TEA EXPERIENCE AT THE GRAND LONDON IN PICCADILLY

The waitress came over after less than five minutes that we had sat down and asked what we would like to order. We definitely were not ready yet so we asked for a bit more time.

She came back after 2 minutes , she looked like she was trying to rush us due to the place being almost full. 


We politely asked her to come back and give us some more time but I could feel there was some pressure from either the supervisor as I could see the looks they were exchanging.

If I have to be perfectly honest it almost felt like you were at some cheap venue where they want you to leave quickly! This is sad as I think this ruins the overall experience.


MY UNDERWHELMING AFTERNOON TEA EXPERIENCE AT THE GRAND LONDON IN PICCADILLY

We ordered The Grand London afternoon tea for two with peppermint tea and early grey.


At this point I overlooked the fact that they were very clearly rushing us as they wanted to free up tables quickly. I was so excited to try their afternoon tea.

They brought the tea over first and there was nothing special about the tea or how it was presented.

The taste of my earl grey was very much underwhelming as they simply give you a small metal tea pot with tea bags which sit in there. The milk is offered on the side and the sugar was on request. The tea was also not hot but rather room temperature.

It was the most horrible tea I have ever tried. 


I tried to finish at least one cup out of courtesy of the experience but I just couldn't.

MY UNDERWHELMING AFTERNOON TEA EXPERIENCE AT THE GRAND LONDON IN PICCADILLY


They brought over the very known afternoon tea three tier plated tower. I could see it come over and could hardly contain myself.

When it reached the table, I was so disappointed it was so poorly put together.


The sandwiches just looked squeeshed and things were not clean and crisp. I didn't want to ruin my friends experience so I decided not to say anything.

There were 2 tuna and 2 salmon sliced white bread mini sandwiches. There were also 2 types of mini brioche bread sandwiches. I've had better.

MY UNDERWHELMING AFTERNOON TEA EXPERIENCE AT THE GRAND LONDON IN PICCADILLY

I was excited about the scones which came with clotted cream and strawberry jam. Two of the scones had sultanas and two were plain. 

The scones were not warm at all and like heavy bricks but I was too hungry at this point to give it a miss.

I then gave the top level tier a try which had a small selection of desserts. It had 2 macaroons, two cream cups and two fruits tarts.

After a bite I had to stop as there was this strong smell of egg.


MY UNDERWHELMING AFTERNOON TEA EXPERIENCE AT THE GRAND LONDON IN PICCADILLY

At this point, I really wanted to use their bathroom facilities and oh lord!!

The bathroom was so disgusting and dirty. Let me add that's there was NO toilet paper.


I can't stress enough how throughout the whole afternoon they tried to rush us in order to free up a table.

Unfortunately I didn't enjoy the Afternoon tea at The Grand London in Piccadilly, the food quality was mediocre, the tea wasn't brewed to perfection, the toilets were horrific. 


Let's not forget that the waiters and supervisor were putting a lot of pressure on us to finish everything off quickly.

Can you imagine doing an afternoon tea in a rush???

Very disappointing experience and customer service eventhough the supervisor or manager did try to be very professional at the end. 

The worst part was that you could feel the pressure of needing to leave quickly and that defeats the object of having quality time in a beautiful venue like this one.


Other than the impressive decor there wasn't much else to praise. I don't know if The Grand London is aware that the exterior may attract clientele but great customer service and food quality will give you so much more.

I don't recommend this place at all. You will not get the expected quality given the price.


Have you tried The Grand London chain?If so, how did you find your experience?
