If you fancy seafood, this isn't the place to go. I ordered the mixed seafood platter. When it arrived, it looked like they pulled a leftover plate off someone else's table. The amount of food was small and the flavor just wasn't there. The lentil soup was quite good though, and tasted homemade.

When it was on the sea side it was worth visit attraction as you enjoy beach and food. Now it need to offer more than just food to get me back to it.

We went to Souq Waqif on our last night in Doha and decided to treat ourselves with Fish on the last night. We noticed the Al Bandar and were taken by the appeal of fresh fish overlooking the Souq. For starters, we had finger fried fish with tartar sauce and mains were fresh Haddock served with chips and salad and... More

Me and my boyfriend tried to eat there because we are craving for seafood. The waiter takes too much time before coming to our table and give the menu and it took like 20 mins before he ask what is our order. The food is not too good and its little bit costly plus the service is freaking slow and... More

4.5 circles A group of about 10 came here for dinner. The mint lemonade was outstanding. The large mezze platter was huge and the best I've had anywhere in the country. Everything was super fresh and there were dips included on the platter that I haven't seen on any other. The service was adequate. For the mains, many folks got... More

Our steward on Qatar Air recommended this restaurant and we appreciated his kindness and his selection. I did find everything a little salty, but that may just go to my personal taste as I don't usually eat salt. Other than the saltiness, it was the best hummus I've had in a long time. The tabbouleh was nice and fresh and... More

A good experience overall. You chose what you want to eat from from a show stand, and the cooking is good, as is the service. Book in advance, as it can be crowded.
