My Trip Advice - Try it, it's great.

I am in Qatar visiting family and now a host of new Middle Eastern friends. I am a self confessed foodie and requested my friends to find me somewhere to eat which was authentic, not linked to a British Chef or chain I could visit anywhere else in the world. My new found United Nations soon came up... read more

Heard and read so much about this Yemeni restaurant, thought we give it a try for dinner last night at 6 pm. The place was packed, waiters were running around serving food to patrons and we had to wait at least 10 mins for a table. Had to go to the cashier to collect the menu and placed the order.... More

We stumbled upon this little gem during prayer time when everything was closed and we were starving. It was packed, but luckily after about a 10 minute wait we snagged a table. It was our first time eating Yemeni food and it was so delicious! We loved it. We ate chicken and rice and then also beef with a giant... More

It may not look much from outside but is well worth a visit. Excellent food and staff happy to make suggestions ifyou are unsure. We have the sizzling stews with Yemeni bread which is lovely. Very good value.

There are many Yemeni restaurants in several countries and world cities. This is one of the best. The special Yemeni rice, meat, bread and other varieties are super delicious. The Yemeni hospitability at its best. I enjoyed the dinner with friends. It has private rooms for VIP and female guests.

The restaurant is a perfect choice for those like traditional food. I tried (Mandi Tais) and Madfoon as well. Both are great. If you are visiting for the first time I suggest you try Goat meat with Mandi and also Eqdeh (Beef stew) which comes with great huge Yemeni bread.

Bandar Aden is not much to look at but the flavour of the food and the friendliness of the staff make it an incredible experience. Went there one night after work with some clients in Doha - it's unforgettable and absolutely delicious. It's also very reasonably priced which is a big plus. Try it and you'll like it - the...

You may love it, for a single reason it is unique, I always say that yemeni cousine has not yet been discoverd. I should say if you try the real shaibani restaurants in sanaa you will realise that is is only a copy!

If you like to visit Yemen for a couple of hours, you should visit Bandar Aden Restaurant. It's located in Souq Waqif - Doha. First view when you enter is the traditional dress of Yemeni with the knife on their waste. You can choose to sit either on a table or on the floor. Everything in this restaurant is simple... More
