I have ordered the sea food soap, it is well cooked and not fresh. Then I had the grilled Hamour with vegetables and rice, and it was the worst food ever I had in my life. Don't try it unless you want to get sick.

This restaurant is by far the worst I have ever been in Souq Waqif. We waited for the food for over 30 minutes and when they finally served it, it was cold. We asked them for glass with ice, spoon and fork, tissue, ketchup, salt, and pepper (we have to request it one by one) we wait and after minutes... More

Food quality was very good, huge selection of juices and very tasty shisha! Atmosphere is very nice wether you sit in the terrace on the first floor or on the ground floor if you're lucky to find a table. Al Bandar is by far the best souq has to offer. Service is a bit slow however all the rest makes... More

Had a friend visiting Doha so did the tourist bit...., round MIA Park and the souq and dropped in here for an early dinner or late lunch Food was all good, we had a mix of things sticking to the middle east side of the menu. Service was friendly albeit a tad slow. very enjoyable, will be back.

The service was pleasant enough but the fish was average and the sauce was a bit sad. Nice location to watch the world go by

As the name suggests this is a fish restaurant. Myself and my husband had one of the set menus so we could try a range of things we maybe would not normally order. Everything was good, tasted fresh and the service was excellent.

I enjoyed the Grilled Hammour, together with fried vegetable with the sauce which taste like Chinese food. They also serve Tom Yam Koon and Indonesian fried rice, interesting misture of Oriental cuisines. .

Went to al bandar with some friends, service from start to finish was not good. Rushing for orders and when asked for suggestions there was no feedback!...food was overcooked especially the grilled chicken. Tasted like it was marinated for a long time with lemon so it was pasty and over marinated. Kebabs were ok...bread was reheated in a MICROWAVE! !....Overall... More

After 12 years of living in Doha and several visits to this restaurant I can assure that it has the worst service in Doha The food is average but the price is good The chairs and tables are dirty The only reason to visit this restaurant is the location in Souq Waqif
