During a short trip to Doha to visit my son in law we went to this Restaurant for a meal. My wife and I are used to different cuisine but this was one of the best we have ever had. We had a mixed menu, too many dishes to remember. The whole meal was delicious and the staff very friendly... More

I came here with a group of 5 and we really enjoyed our dinner. The food was well prepared and the service was attentive and helpful. We sat at one of the sidewalk tables in the evening and enjoyed watching people pass by. This is a very comfortable place with delicious food. It is one of the better places to... More

This is easily the best restaurant in Souq Waqif. The food is delicious, which is unsurprising given that Iraqi cuisine has such a long and illustrious history, dating back thousands of years to the Mesopotamian cultures. Everything that my party and I ate at Al Adhamiyah was exquisitely flavoured and beautifully presented. The Iraqi chap who seems to be the... More

Based on the reviews on tripadvisor we had diner here. The bread was lovely!! And the main dishes were also very good. Just ask what the dishes are if you are not sure. We received also desert on the house. A very nice gesture.

I visited this restaurant earlier this week after reading all of the good reviews that were on Trip Advisor but I was disappointed as it did noot live up to the hype. On the positive side: The service was really good with the waiter explaining everything well. He did speak some English. Good quality cuttlery and plates. The lemon/mint drink... More

On the main restaurant street in Souk Wakif. Food is excellent. Mouttabel was so rich in taste that I had to give up in the end, as the taste overwhelmed me. Iraqi lamb kebab was aromatic, juicy and melted in my mouth. Tea and chocolate dessert were offered free and the whole experience cost less than 70 QAR. Friendly and... More

I have eaten in this location numerous times and alwys find it awesome. The staff is friendly, although English is not their strong suit, we always manage to get it done. Wonderful grilled meats, and fresh bread (Koubz) make it a very satisfying meal. You cannot get away without Arabic tea or dessert, and if you decline, they will bring... More

We are Europeans residing in Dubai and took a short city trip to Doha, where our friend lives. Among all the restaurants in Souq Waqif we picked this one because we were curious about Iraqi food. The staff were not so fluent at English but the man who seemed to be the in-charge took over and answered all our questions... More

Fantastic service, great food, came with a friend and the portions were huge! Couldn't even finish - don't order too much (we are two young guys with big appetites and we still couldn't manage!)
