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.

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!!!

Nice restaurant in Hotel Radisson Blue in Doha to enjoy your dinner with live music. On Friday and Saturday night do have a reservation if planning a late dinner as the place can get crowded. Try different meats and fish is a must. Alcoholic drinks are available. There is enough free parking space around the hotel.

Tucked away in the back of the slightly dated Radisson Blu Hotel (Formally the Ramada) this little jewel is well worth a visit. The décor is old school Indian restaurant which added to the live music makes the ambience very enjoyable. Every time I visit I am made to feel welcome with the excellent food an added bonus.

If you need to spend some quality time with your friends in Qatar and want them to feel the Indian food then this is the place. It has good service, excellent decor with Indian touch. There... More

Ok , the Radisson Blu doesn't pretend to be a luxury resort hotel but this restaurant has set out to create an opulent feel with red soft furnishings and low tables . Certainly not your typical UK City centre curry house! Don't be put off by walking through the hotels main "canteen" style restaurant because Chingari is very different. The... More

This is a place for tourists more than locals or indians. The food is not wow but they have a love singer and have made a lot if effort with the ambienceband atmosphere. the food is overpriced for what you get and you can definitely get better cuisine elsewhere.
