If you are in Doha you have to visit Turkey Central!

We visited Doha last month and popped into Turkey Central for lunch and ended up going back for dinner the next night because it was so good! My husband used to live in Doha and moved about 10 years ago and so he recommended the chicken schwarma and it was one of the most delicious meals I've ever... read more

This is one of our favourite restaurant or maybe the top favourite. All dishes are really tasty, my favourit is shish tawook and half grill chicken with babaganooj salad. Pricewise it is one of the best restaurants as well.

The food here is sumptous, good quality and tasty, the salad and breads and meat. But go there when you are really hungry and do justice. No formalities.

We have been ordering food from Turkey Central for more than 10 years. The seasoning of their grills makes them stand out from other restaurants. They also serve a wide variety of food (okra, lentil, grills, pastries). What I also like about the restaurant is that they have been consistent.

This place does not have a 5 star dining hall, but it can sure serve up some good food. The appetizers are amazing, the bread is ever so fresh, and the grilled chicken is succulent and tender. The Turkish people running the restaurant have been around for years, I remember going there with my family as a child. Now they... More

Located in Frij Nasser Street, this restaurant is one place to go if you want a cheap but very delicious Turkish BBQ. Everything in the menu is a must try. They have delivery too!

The place is very low on quality, very very slow with service, but we paid QAR 60 for two plates of Shawerma, 1 plate of hummos, 1 plate of fries, and two Pepsi.

I've certainly been to Turkey Central several dozen times, yet I have never had a bad meal. Not fancy at all, but an incredible values. the juices, especially mango, are exquisite.
