Delight for North Indian Food Lovers

A bit limited in choice, a set menu is what you should settle for. The dinner started with variety of Seafood, Chicken & Mutton starters, which were cooked to perfection in the north Indian style. The main course with variety of Indian breads and rice with tempting meat, vegetables cooked in... read more

Delightful! As always Chingari's shine. The staff, the food, the presentation and the service is fantastic. A long running contender for good indian food and it never disappoints - well only once, a long time ago! You could just go and eat the poppadums and watch the band and be happy. A great restaurant who gets it right. Thououghly recommended.

I hate Indian food but I have to give this place credit. The food is incredible! If you like Indian food and you don't go to Chingari, you are doing yourself a disservice. The interior is very very dated and could really do with a revamp. It looks like a 70s velour brothel.

WHile staying in DOha or even in Radisson hotel, the Chingari is always one option. The Chingari is a Indian restaurant of high quality. Sometimes, we come here in the early evening jsut for a small plate and Nan bread Marsale and some beers. However, for dinner, Chingari offers all the works. Lamb, chicken, mint spiced or hot. Even my... More

Went there last night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Very nice meal. Portions are a good size so we decided to take leftovers home. Arrived home to discover that they had not packed all of the food. Very disappointing to pay for food and not have the chance to eat it. Spoiled our night. Felt ripped off. Called the restaurant...

This is an Indian cuisine restaurant and I relish their Biryanis. It is in the old block of the Hotel at the far end of the coffee shop.

I visited 3 times to be a good judge. The food not special and the spices was not much good. So not recommend. The only one thing i gave 3 stars was for the atmosphere and the nice stuff.

I highly recommend this restaurant for all those who like grill dishes. Grill chicken are awesome. I can say it was one of the best dish I have ever ate in my life :) Ambiance was also awesome. Live ghazal singers, you can also ask for your fav songs/ghazals. Price is not cheap neither it's too expensive but it's ok... More

Have been there 4-5 times.. Its meant for people who are looking for great ambience and fine dining. As far as appetizers are concerned, some of the items were really delicious.. Bit disappointed with limited options in main course.. Overall above average Indian fine dining place!!!
