Best Kebab in Berlin
Finding the best Kebab is one of the trickiest tasks there are in Berlin.
The amount of different Kebab places is just way too high.
In some areas like Neukölln or Kreuzberg you will find 5 different Kebab restaurants within 2 minutes of walking distance.
So you might ask yourself where can I find the best Kebab in Berlin?
Lucky for you we have already tried hundreds of different Kebabs in Berlin, ranging from Veggie Kebab to Chicken Kebab to Veal Kebab.
Just on a side-note, you might want to call a Kebab a Döner in Berlin.
No real Berliner uses the word Kebab, it is simply a Döner.

Mustafas Gemüse Kebab
If you only have time to try one Kebab then make sure you head out to Kreuzberg and give Mustafas a try.
Simply the best Kebab in Berlin and worldwide.
Actually Mustafas Gemüse Kebab is so amazing that it is on the top spot of our Top 10 things to eat in Berlin list.
You might be wondering what it is that puts Mustafas so far ahead of all other Kebabs. Let us tell you about their Kebab then.
Starting with the bread that is freshly grilled followed by the homemade choice of yoghurt-, garlic- and spicy sauce.
Next to mention is the quality of their chicken meat, which they always make sure that it is grilled to the exact spot, no matter if there are 100 people in line waiting and freezing.
Good quality meat simply takes some time on the grill.
But what makes Mustafas Gemüse Kebab so special are the deep fried veggies.
A mix of paprika, potatoes, carrots and some other stuff deep fried and seasoned added to the already very tasty meat just makes Mustafas the best döner in Berlin.
Just one thing that we have to mention in order to avoid any disappointment. If you are in a hurry do not waste your time trying to get a Mustafas Kebab.
We have experienced waiting times from 30 minutes (cold, rainy and early) to 90 minutes (sunny and around 6 p.m.).

But rest assured Konyali is absolutely worth a try as well.
Conveniently located in a side street off Kottbusser Tor Konyali recently renovated and bought Der Gerät.
The fact alone that Der Gerät is working at Konyali now is a reason to visit this Konyalis at least once a week.
Watching Der Gerät automatically grill and cut the Kebab meat has almost a hypnotizing effect that in the past only could have been achieved by whale sounds.
In case you have no idea what Der Gerät means just watch the video or visit Der Gerät’s website.
But to be honest, Konyali already served some of the best Kebabs around even before they upgraded to Der Gerät.
Our favorite is of course the Döner Spezial Teller in large, which comes with French Fries covered in salad, meat and sauce.
Definitely can’t go wrong with that, can you?

Rüyam Döner Berlin
This is a absolute wonder – this Döner place opened up a branch in the middle of Prenzlauer Berg with fantastic ratings on Google.
And we haven’t heard about it until recently!!!
We still wonder how this could happen, especially as in Prenzlauer Berg there is still a real shortage of good tasty kebabs.
But now that we found this place we will never forget it again.
This is partly due to the fact that the girls working their really enjoy their work and they greet each customer personally and make them feel welcome.
And of top of this the Dürüm Kebab is just fantastic.
Only the freshest ingredients and high quality meat make for an unbeatable combination.

Mehas Döner Berlin
Remember when we told you that you will find a good kebab in every corner in Berlin?
We admit it, we might have exaggerated a tiny bit.
Finding a good kebab in Prenzlauer Berg really is a difficult task. The problem is not that there aren’t enough kebab places around.
The real problem is that most of them are those kebab places are just standard kebab places – nothing wrong about it but also nothing to recommend.
However with Mehas Döner in Greifswalder Strasse now every citizen of Prenzlauer Berg can satisfy his/her cravings for a great kebab without travelling through half the town to Kreuzberg or Neukölln.
Fresh meat, great quality ingredients and a big enough place so you can sit down and dig into your kebab in peace.
Location: Greifswalder Str. 208a, 10405 Berlin
Well good news is that at Kastanienallee close to Eberswalder Strasse there is a Gemüse Kebap place that offers a very similar tasting Kebab but without the hassle of waiting for hours.
So if you feel like a Chicken or Veggie Kebab and you are around Eberswalder Strasse make sure to visit Gemüse Kebap. Yes that’s right, in German we would say “Der Name ist Programm”.
Location: Kastanienallee 102, 10435 Berlin
Berlin is the Home of the Döner
Did you ever hear the rumour that the kebab has been invented in Berlin?
Well this is actually true.
In 1972 Kadir Nurman had the brilliant idea to put the traditional thinly cut meat in a toasted flatbread and we had our first döner.
In the beginning Döner (Kebab) was very popular with the Turkish exapts working in Berlin.
But with time more and more Germans discovered this tasty fast food and Döner kebabs became one of the most popular dishes in Berlin.
