Sunderland Gourmet Kebab from Bavara

26th May 2017


Bavava Restaurants, which ownss Indian restaurant and craft beer concept Papadoms, has launched gourmet kebab and beer concept Döner Haüs in Sunderland. The company has converted its debut Papadoms site in High Street West to the new-look kebab house in the first of what the company intends to be a chain of eateries.


Founder and chief executive Sanjeev Sanghera, who has spent more than 30 years in the restaurant business, was inspired to launch the concept following a visit to Germany and eating at kebab restaurants in Berlin.


“Although there are a couple of sit-in restaurants that specialise in gourmet kebabs, we believe this is the first one in the UK for doner kebabs,” said Sanghera.


Bavava Restaurants will also open a Papadoms venue in Bradford following a £1.4m investment, with plans in the pipeline for a site in Newcastle.
