Snacks & dips arrived on the table immediately. Drinks also arrived promptly. Lovely restaurant, but the live music was a bit loud so difficult to have a conversation around the table. We were 5 people and everyone ordered their own thing. However when the food arrived, our waiter very eagerly started to portion it all out. This caused a bit... More

What a lovely Indian restaurant. The food was delicious and the ambiance seemed to be authentic. The Chicken Korma was fantastic and was made even better when washed down with a cold beer. I thought it was a bit on the expensive side but the food and ambiance will surely bring us back.

My family and I don't go out for dinner too often, but anytime we do, we always come here. The atmosphere is awesome, décor is perfect and a beautiful stage with traditional Indian musicians playing music. We go with our 18 month old and our 3 year old and they love it there too. The food is delicious. Really couldn't... More

We lived in Doha for 5 years and loved visiting the Chingari. In fact it is possibly the only thing we miss now we have left Qatar. The Lamb chops are fantastic and order the Mucenwallah gravy on the side. Watch out for the Kingfisher strong lager in the bottles. Very strong. The staff are lovely. Missing the poppadoms on...

Most of the food items are authentic Indian taste, centrally located in Doha. Moderately priced - advise booking a table on weekends before you go. Try Mughlai Indian dishes. Less choice for vegetarians

It's just ok. The food is not bad, the service is very good--always a smile, always attentive. The atmosphere is a nice break from the doldrums of Doha.

What a lovely Indian restaurant. When we arrived we were greeted by the sound of sitar players and a lovely Indian lady singing. The food was delicious and the ambiance was very authentic.
