This is my first visit here. Truly enjoy their food. I may not know how to pronounce them, but I surely enjoy them. Service are fast and the waiters are helpful. Not to mention their reasonable price.. Overall good experience and will definitely come again. Next trip..soon

Wow, was taken to this restaurant by a family friend. Very busy, but was not disappointed. The meat is just to die for, just melts in your mouth, superbly cooked. Will return.

Our group of 6 had arrived in Doha that morning and were keen to explore the souqs. A friendly Nepalese shopkeeper recommended Bandar Aden as excellent Yemeni food and he was right. At first glance the restaurant is a little ordinary but very quickly we were shown to a little raised area of our own with carpets and cushions to... More

We are family of Six and we rarely agree anything together, but this restaurant, we have all agreed that it was best food we had in Doha. We are visiting here for family vacation, from Western NY and in my opinion if you visit Doha you must visit this restaurant. For me, it will be worth coming back to Doha... More

Once we found this restaurant through the friendly help of the souq's shopkeepers, we totally enjoyed this Yemeni food. Looked like a place that locals eat, service was hectic but friendly and adequate. The food wasn't "adequate", it was over the top abundant, and we wished we'd only ordered one meal to split. The bread was really fresh, hot and... More

It's not fancy. It's not big on variety. It's just good quality Yemeni food in an authentic setting, and at a very reasonable price. Sit at a table, sit on the carpet in traditional style, your choice. My favorite eating place at Souk Waqif...not well sign-posted, it looks over the Souq Waqif Park toward the Corniche. Enjoy a simple night... More

This is a humble place in Souq Waqif where locals eat which is different than most fancier restaurants you might find at luxury hotels. In Middle Eastern countries, usually, the restaurants that are at the commercial centers (Souqs and Bazaars) are among the bests. This restaurant is even more unique because it offers Yamani cuisine that cannot be found in... More

Not Qatari traditional food, it's a Yemen traditional food. It shows the impact of Yemen to Gulf region. Very delicious food .
