This is where we go for the best lemon mint - not only from our palate taste but from multiple peoples palate that we know. Just advice to reduce the sugar. The food are very fresh and servings are good to share. The staff are just great and friendly, attentive; though not all are from Iraq.

We got an outside table quite late in the evening, and enjoyed the lively atmosphere in the pedestrian street by the souk. We ordered some mixed starters that never arrived - instead we got our main courses right away. Since the waiter just took our orders and never informed us that we would need side dishes as well, the meals... More

Its supposed to be The ambassador of masgoof iraqi fish! I visited it twice , it takes long long time to prepare the food. For kids its boaring to wait for the food. I am sorry for not being so loyal the masgoof but i think you can get similar flavour in yemeni restaurant near by or singari egyption grilled... More

Despite a good service I won't go back neither I would recommend. Nothing special to see there. Food is almost tasteless, without any style and served ultra quickly. Makes me believe that its already prepared and vaguely re-warmed for you.

A group of us came for dinner and were very pleased with the experience. This is perhaps the best local meal I've had at a proper sit down restaurant in Doha. The restaurant is located in the souqs and has both indoor and outdoor seating. You can but don't have to make reservations. We ordered a round of mint lemonades... More

This is one of many restaurants in the "restaurant row" of the redeveloped souk. Food was the usual mix of grilled meats and mideast versions of biriani - the four of us tried a range of these dishes and, while ok, there was nothing special about any of them. We didn't try the dips so can't say what they were... More

I was not greeted by anyone. I was give a table where one of the waiter was keeping his Coat hanging. Ten minutes after we settled a waiter came and I asked him for some water. The main course was Lamb Tikka and Chicken Biryani. Both were not worth even 10 Riyals and and ended I ended up paying 10... More

Visited with a group of friends and we shared the mezze starter, which consisted of the nicest baba ganoush I have ever tasted. The bread was delicious and the other assorted accompaniments also held up. My main of mixed meat kebab was lovely, but the kofta style kebabs did let the meal down a tad as they were not as...
