It was my first time trying Iraqi cuisine, and I was impressed. The chicken was very flavorful and tender. Rice that came with it was also flavorful and really good. The portion here was HUGE. I left nearly half the food behind due to not being able to finish, and for that huge portion of food it was priced very... More

You will never find a fresh bread like the ones you can find at Al Adhamiyah. But it is not only bread, the starters are fantastic as well the main courses. For sure, all the flavor is followed by a fantastic service. Mr. Parkash Bhusal is supporting us for almost 8 years that me and my family use to get... More

Revisited this restaurant during Ramadan at Iftar. Had a very nice selection of mezze. Followed by a mixed grill and their signature Iraqi fish which is cooked on an open coal fire. It is wonderful and is highly recommended. Not so keen on the desserts which are overly sweet.

Good service. Good good. Great portions. Plenty of bread and meat for the price. We ate outside and was not too busy at 700pm on Saturday. Very good value!

We tried this restaurant almost at the end of the main restaurant street in Souq Waif. We did not regret it. Very nice interior and man was the food nice. Very well prepared, excellent Kebab and Tika. Well seasoned, we loved all of it and it was so much that we took some of it home with the very tasty... More

Neither my colleague not I had eaten Iraqi food before so thought we would try it. The menu didn't explain what the dishes were so we chose randomly. The mixed starter turned out to be the ubiquitous hummus, Asian salad and baba ghanoush that is impossible to avoid in the region. Our main arrived before we were even half way... More

The staff is very welcoming and will explain the items on the menu if u are unsure ...I had the lamb qouzi which was delicious....served with a side of okra and white beans.... I requested the yogurt sauce as it has more flavors to the... More

We had a fabulous meal in this restaurant last week, had a traditional Iraqi BBQ fish dish and traditional starters with gorgeous freshly baked bread. Six of us to share and even the kids enjoyed it, especially the kebabs. Would definitely return. Reasonably priced too!

Situated in Souq Waqif, a wonderful location, Al Adhamiyah is one of my favourite places to eat in Doha, it offers genuine Iraqi cuisine and the service of the staff is excellent. Food tastes great and is delivered in genuine portions, the kofta is unforgettable and the masgoof fish is one-of-a-kind. The restaurant made me (quite frankly) fall in love... More

The environment is not the best you could find, however traditional arabic. We sat at front side of the upper floor, where the tables are separated by curtains and you can feel a kind of privacy. The food is good and plenty. One main dish is enough. If you order starters, then some of the main dish will remain to... More
