“Still brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

I have reviewed TC before and given an excellent review. I have since ordered from or been at TC numerous times, and it is definitely the place I have eaten from/at the most during my two years in Doha. Yes, the restaurant itself is quite sad, grey and frankly un-cosy. Yes the staff do not meet you with huge smiles the first time you come, perhaps. But guess what, when you yourself make an effort to make them smile, they do, and every single time after they recognize you and offer the biggest and broadest smiles you´d ever want to have. Sometimes we could actually put in some effort ourselves. And sometimes the food and the people are enough to create a good atmosphere. :)

The shish taouk is still perfect. Every. Single. Time. To keep that level of tastiness on the food (omg the bread!!) so many times simply deserves a five (not to mention how cheap it is!!).

“YUM YUM YUM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We've been in Doha about 12 weeks and have been to Turkey Central 5 or 6 times. It's that good! We have treated our friends here and they all say that it is delicious. The flat bread alone is worth the trip. We generally get the large mixed grill with a large hummous and have enough for our family of 4 plus a few left overs for the next day. The meat is cooked well and is flavorful, the flat bread is the best we have had in Doha, and the service is good. We like to get ours take out, but you can eat in if you'd prefer. Just be mindful that the parking is a nightmare! It's so good that there are lots of people going in and out so you will see a lot of double parked cars.

“Cheap eats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

The food is hot, fresh and tasty. It is a great value for money. Do not go expecting great cuts of meat or quality as the meat can be a bit tough and have gristle. Great dips!

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

This place is not your hotel five star style property, it is a restaurant that has been around for years and is located near the yea of Doha. Decent Turkish/Arabic food, decent prices and friendly staff. For those wanting to sit back relax and soak up the views, this is not the place to go, but for those who want decent food at a decent cost, then it is worth the visit. There are plenty of Arabic style restaurants around the city that are better located, but not many match these for the quality and cost.
