After hours of wandering around the hot streets of Doha we were in need of cold drinks and good food. We looked at many restaurants in the Souq and chose Al Adhamiyah based on their tasting sounding menu and Qatari clientele. Service started out a little slow in cleaning our table from the previous diners but was worth the wait.... More

The souks of Qatar are a great place to eat! The Al adhamiya iraqi serves different kinds of food and we had a great platter of different starters. As main dish we had the chicken and lamb! Great tasting and marinated!

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!
