“Aaaaahhhh, good!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We visited the Quinpool location, thanks to an ad on a city map! Happy to try a donair, we went not expecting too much...
We've had Turkish donairs in Germany and they have been hard to beat! Our poor fella was working in a very hot location, and doing everything himself...pizzas, donairs the lot. We opted to stay to eat ours, and saw how very popular this location was! We initially ordered three and had to order another, because wow! Fantastic! You will not be disappointed! As we said the place is very warm in hot weather, not an attractive place to dine in, but take away is a good choice. Very tasy...would visit again! And prices are very good!

“Moved”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

To our great surprise and disappointment, the Grafton St location no longer exists. Everytime we visit Halifax, we must have a donair at King of Donair. As an alternative, we went across the street to Big Slice, but it just wasn't the same. Next day, we went to KOD on Quinpool and got the taste we were looking for. The service was a little slow as the only guy in the take-out had to prepare a large pizza order before making our donairs.

“Unreal Value - Great Service!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

My spouse and I as well as our three kids only had a few minutes between finishing our Clay Cafe Pottery Studio creation (See #12 in Things to do) and getting down to the Harbour for our Tall Ship cruise. The solution: run across Quinpool Road to the Donair King for a three topping LARGE pizza for $8.99 (!) Very kind server fed us all and then some for this low price. I have paid much more for much less quality.

Back in town this week, this time alone, I tried the Donair and found it superb - lots of delicious donair meat, with a great sauce and the same friendly service. I ordered the medium and along with a Dr. Pepper and tip, was out of there for about $12.

The Donair King needs to climb the ranks as far as I'm concerned!

“The name says it all”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

I know that those who like Donairs each have their favourite but I have always gone back to the King. It stands out as an excellent choice in Halifax
