The title sums it all up. This place is very cozy and exotic. Specially the private little tents. The food is truely delecious. Unique experience... but comes at high price. Still worth it

Although my husband has lived in Doha for three months, I had only arrived two days when we decided to have a fourth wedding anniversary dinner at Chingari. This was my first meal out and I have to say, it was a fantastic experience. The ambience, the staff, the food was of the highest quality. What I thought would be... More

It was my aunt's birthday. Me and my family went to have a quite cozy dinner which landed out to be an amazing experience. The waiters and other people around arranged for some birthday music, some candles and a cake cutting session was organized. The food was simply amazing with mellow flavors of Indian spices. The live Ghazal(Indian music) was... More

Wherever we live we like to find a good Indian restaurant and this one has done the job nicely. Also has a live band in the evenings (never been there for lunch so don't know if they are there then) which is a nice background to have.

Chingari is a bit difficult to find, hidden away in the old Ramadan hotel, but it's about the best indian food in town and not to forget, served with the real Kingfisher.

Having heard people rave endlessly about Chingari, I was very much looking forward to trying it - however, having finally gone, have to confess that I am disappointed - have given it a 3, but that could easily have been a 2... It could have been an exception on the night, but the service was absolutely dreadful - while we... More

Loved the ambience and the live ghazal performance. Perfect atmosphere for couples and families. Food quality is also great. Staff hospitality also gets a four star. A little pricey for a common man but value for money. Will definitely make a second visit.

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
