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

This is one of the best restaurants at Doha. Menu is very rich from Chicken, meat, mix, rice,soaps,Qably, they make their own bread, You have to go there when visiting Doha, Not expensive at all, Prices are very good so if you are 6 people and go for the largest meal it would be a very good value for money

Ok, this place looks more of a local place from outside. But trust my advice and go in, sit down and you will be rewarded with something awesome - great food and great service. This is a Yemeni/Arabic restaurant. The meals are VERY well priced, $20 at the absolute most for two and you will eat until your stomach can't... More

We visited on the recommendation on the staff at our hotel. When we walked in we almost turned around because of the dated décor and sticky floors. I'm so glad we didn't though - the service was fantastic, the prices very cheap (for Doha) and the food was just amazing. We especially enjoyed the Yemeni bread. We liked this place... More
