At the end of the main street in the heart of Souq Al Wakif you are still searching for that one glimmer of something extraordinary that will help you pick that special restaurant. All seems clear once you see the huge traditional clay oven and the massive fish spliced along the belly slowly roasting. The staff are authentically dressed ,... More

I strongly recommend Al-Adhamiyah restaurant. It's just across from the juice shop in Souq Waqif, about 10 metres away from the art centre. Start with a mixed mezze, and they'll continue to bring you piping hot, fresh unleavened bread: perfect starters. The chicken kebab is big enough to split between two. We're seen here often enough that they have given... More

The restaurant is in the main street of Souq Waqif. It is quite nice, but not elegant. The food is good and enjoyable, but I could not found any feature that distinguishes it from many other restaurants of the Souq. Prices are very affordable, but this is not enough to let me choose Al Adhamiyah as one of my favourites... More

Excellent food for a reasonable price with a lovely atmosphere. The wait staff are pleasant and attentive. We really enjoyed the Fatoush and Hummus. Fresh juice was available as well. Try the chicken tika or the Iraqi kebabs! Both are excellent choices with plenty to eat there and plenty to take with you as portion sizes were large.

Unfortunately this small restaurant lacked any main meals for vegetarians. That said, I ordered a lentil soup (which was intended for a starter) and it was delicious. After ordering, my soup came almost immediately which was a mild inconvenience as they knew it was all i had ordered... And obviously my fathers main course didn't arrive for another 15 minutes....

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.
