“Good wraps, lots of potential”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

This restaurant is in the Salaam mall near City Center mall (The Gate). First impression is that it is very much a fast food joint so don't take a new date unless you are prepared for super casual ambience. It is hard to find at first as you need to go outside to get back indoors. (and no rest room in the restaurant, which is typical in the mall here)

Had the spinach wrap with a soft blue cheese like Stilton and walnuts. Delicious. Salad on the side was brocolli with tiny pieces, grapes, a very sweet dressing. Having this salad many times in US, it is similar to the way we do it, except we would normally add crumbled bacon on top and raisins, not grapes.

The staff are very friendly

Tried two desserts, one like a cheese cake and one was a waffle with bananas, ice cream and topping. Fantastic.

They deliver in West Bay

I would recommend them as being a place for fresh food.

The owner is supporting the community and had a check for 10,000 riyals for cancer already posted. Great job!!

“Decent sandwiches”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Tucked away at the back end of the Gate Mall the Spicy Pickle is a new franchise (yes another) to Doha. Bright, colourful, airy and clean, it's nice on the eye. Walking in greeted by a calvary of smiley Filipino staff, with no other customers, they look eager to be doing something. The board is divided up into Pizza, Salad/Wraps, Sandwiches, Panini, Kids, Soup & Piadina (that's a regular toasted sandwich/sarnie/sanga). We settle on the Signature Sandwiches as our first visit, show us what you got! We decide on the Yard Bird - chicken, blue cheese, beef bacon, apple, spinach, honey mustard, 55QAR. No our server says, not available and then he rattles off a list of items not available. Ahhh my pet peeve, a short menu with items not available - why? There's nothing in that sandwich that's hard to get? The staff are bored, trot over to Carrefour and buy blue cheese, apple, whatever you need. First impression, not good but pretty typical of franchises in Doha. Ok let's go for the Englishman - Roast Beef, Cheddar, Horseradish Coleslaw with Thousand Island Dressing, 52QAR. All sandwiches come with a quarter spicy pickle and a choice of orange slices, apple slices, coleslaw, broccoli or pasta salad. Now service was fast our sandwiches were easily at our table within 10mins, excellent. The spicy pickle is a spicy pickle and very tasty! The sandwich big, on a large bread square tasty bread roll. Coleslaw too tasty and fresh looking. I've eaten a ton of sandwiches in my time, who hasn't, it's an Australian lunch staple. Some slices of deli beef, some middle of the road cheddar and some coleslaw on a big bun. To be honest this sandwich takes the honour of being the most expensive lunch sandwich I've eaten, for 52QAR I was expecting higher quality beef and cheese and more of it. For the same money there's a lot of food options to be had in Doha, 3 course lunch express menus are extremely competitive for a few riyals more. At then across the road in Monoprix you can get an excellent bagutte with high quality ingredients for 20QAR. I'll be back, maybe I just picked wrong, I'll try the pizza (45QAR) and the regular grilled sandwiches (25QAR) they looked good. What I do like is more options for casual dining in Doha, lazy Friday & Saturday mornings are looking better and better for coffee, newspaper reading and tasty food options, so I really hope the Spicy Pickle is here to stay!

“Good Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

I had a very enjoyable pepper steak with the attendant veggies I ordered. All were brought piping hot and the veggies were crunchy which is rare in the ME.

“Office Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

For a city as diverse as Doha, finding a place that knows how to do a decent sandwich is hard!

Spicy Pickle has become a favorite for us in the office because they deliver and the food is always fresh. Favorites for us are the light Piadinas as well as the pizzas.

Great service, friendly delivery and fresh ingredients. the perfect sandwich place!
