“Great atmosphere. Amazing food brilliant staff - except for one bad apple.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

Spice Market is a Doha favourite of mine. The atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant and the food is consistently excellent. Their servers are passionate about the dining experience. The only negative is the female waitress from Macedonia. Mariana ruins the entire experience. She is unfriendly, unprofessional and generally cold. She ruins the entire experience. I totally recommend this establishment just make it clear she should jot be anywhere in the vicinity of your table.

“Excellent food in a darkish-blaring setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I have come many times now to this place, and it is certainly one of the best places to go if you like good food. The cross-over plates are mostly great (beef ribs) , the one-region-only plates like the duck curry excellent, just very few dishes are not remarkable (warm beet-root salade). The only inconvenience is that it is pretty dark (in some corners we had to use the mobile phone to be able to read the menu) and quite blaring, so always order a table most away from the music if you wish to communicate.

“Friday Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Enjoyable Friday Brunch with friends.

Thai food a little bland to be honest, but might be spoiled after living there for years.

Excellent Ginger Margarita and dessert buffet. Cost is QR 350 which makes it one of the more expensive brunches in Doha.

Would recommend and go again.

“A flavourful experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We took a group of friends to dinner and were very impressed with the meal. We ordered the 5 course set menu and shared the food amongst all of us.

There was a great variety and found the food to be very tasty. We would go back.
