We really enjoyed this restaurant so much we ate at the one in the Souq Waqif two nights later. The lamb is delicious and we loved the mixed grill plate. I wouldn't leave Doha without visiting one of them. FYI, the one in the souq is in the most beautiful building inside and is a LOT LESS expensive.

Had a lovely meal with friends in this blingy but attractive setting with nice background music. Staff really polite, all Iranian, food authentic and tasty on small but adequate menu. Inner courtyard seating is blingtastic with bright colours and mirrors but outer seating on Souq Waqf main drag is nice too. 2 courses each for 4 was QAR 550 so... More

This restaurant is located in the Souq Waqif. Me and my husband went for lunch. I ordered a chicken kebab and he ordered the lamb chops. We both ordered a cold appetiser which was a yogurt with spinach and garlic. All the food was hot and delicious, my chicken was moist and flavourful. The Decor is stunning! It is traditionally...

This review pertains to the Sharq Village location. The location and view can't be beat. There is a rest view of the diplomatic district across the bay, so you can watch the spectacular light show during dinner. The service is attentive. The food is flavorful, as you would expect for a Persian restaurant. The bread is cooked to order in... More

We were drawn into this place by the amazing décor inside, it really is amazing. The menu has good variety, and the food is very nice, staff also very good. There was live music too played on a traditional harp like instrument, was very relaxing to listen too.

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Doha, however our last visit was not up to the same standards. The stew dishes, which used to be exemplary, now contain very little meat. In mine there were only 2 or 3 pieces of meat. Despite this, the service was excellent as ever. The atmosphere created by the musician is hard... More

This was one of the best fun experiences we had in the Arab world. We live in Dubai but are a bit tired of new restaurants. We like restaurants for character and good food and this place had it. We were there for a very late lunch so the service was superb but it looked like it would hum at... More

Parisa, which means "an angel", is the newest Persian cuisine in Doha and invites diners to enjoy an exciting style of contemporary Persian delights at its finest. The sea view restaurant at Sharq Village & Spa overlooking Doha Bay is the perfect backdrop for memorable dining experiences in an elegant, stylish ambience. The interior design with its color scheme purple and grey is complemented by an exclusive décor reflecting the Persian tradition.
