“Nice Style!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Love the business mans lunch, great value for money, although drinks are expensive. The menu is varied enough to want to go back and try other meals on offer.

“Nice place, food a bit hit & miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Very popular restaurant and recommended to me as one of the best in Doha. Was very busy and reservation was needed, indeed the whole hotel seemed very lively and bustling. Clearly one of the trendy places to go when in Doha. Service was very good although the music was quite loud and the waiter had to repeat things a bit, and the atmosphere was very good. We tried the tasting menu which wasn't a cheap option, and we were not sure we got value for money.

Food was generally well cooked and very well presented, but some of the flavour combinations were a bit jarring and unusual - satay with a strange orange peel after-taste, blackened chicken completely overpowered by an unpleasant 'perfumey' citrus taste. And 'plain' dishes (samosa etc) were - just OK. Avoid the tuna tartare - a very odd and a not quite palatable 'slime'.

Would go back, and is a great place for socialising, but would probably choose what to eat with some care.

Hello Voight-Kampf,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review, Though I was very happy that you enjoyed the service and the atmosphere, I was very disappointed to hear that our food was not up to your expectations.

I would welcome the opportunity to discuss your visit in more detail, if I could please ask you to contact me on E-Insider.WDoha@whotels.com.

Thank you again for the feedback.

All the best,

“Very nice atmosphere, excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Went to Spice Market for dinner with friends. You can feel the atmosphere of the restaurant as soon as you entered. We had their happy-hour drinks and then followed by dinner. The service was excellent and the staff were all very attentive. They cleared our glass/ plates as soon as we have finished, and brought us our next drinks/ asked if we wanted anything else. Though there was a mix of order at dinner, it was quickly resolved by the very professional staff, particularly the duty manager. The food at dinner was delicious! All in all, it was a very good experience. Will visit again soon.
