I ordered grilled prawns where I had to beg for the waiters' attention they were busy chitchatting with some guy, then my food arrived soggy french fries and overcooked prawns. I had to go and get the salt from the kitchen myself!! Not recommended!!!!!!

Good food...don't miss the Hummus platter and Biryani! If you sit on the first floor you get a good view of the street with people enjoying hookah and food.

The location of restaurant is amazing, we sat on terrace upstairs. The ambiance is really good, the interiors are rustic, when you visit souq waqif it's... More

We had lunch here last Sunday, waiting for the souq shops to open in the afternoon. Not bad indeed! and after lunch you can have a good fruit salad and smoke shisha.

My visit to Al Bandar was overall average, My friend ordered Hammour fish which she didn't like much.. But I ordered chicken Biryani which was surprisingly very good and extremely authentic Qatari Biryani..

We ordered a selection of foods as my sister was visiting and wanted to try some Middle Eastern cuisine. To be honest we ordered too much food. A good option is to order... More
