Our first return visit for a while and a huge let down. This is not a cheap Indian curry house by any means so you a quality standard of food, and in fairness our previous visits had delivered just that, but this last meal was a huge let down. We had a chicken kebab starter to share which while flavoursome... More

We enjoyed our stay at Chingari, with great food, friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Just be careful, when the menu says, it is spicey, it probably is for European tase. We defintily will come again.

This is the best Indian restaurant I have been so far in Doha. The staff delivered an exceptional service. Although the interior seems to be a bit dark, the ambiance and the music compensates for a relaxed evening dinner.

I come to Chingari just for the Fish Tandoori which usually comes with big prawn(s) and fish. The service is poliTe and helpful. And the style of the restaurant meets all expectations if you want to have the "I'm in India" feeling. Dark red cushion seats, low tables, elephant statues, Indian live music etc.

My husband and I have a guilty pleasure - a love for Indian food paired with a glass of shiraz. After a dry fortnight and back to back home cooked meals, it came as no surprise to my husband that the request for my birthday dinner was to go out for Indian and red wine. Enter Chingari, a truly exquisite... More

We have been living in Asia for some years and we are used to the real indian cuisine, and we can grant that the food served in Chingari tastes like the real one! Everything is tasteful, portions are good and it is well worth the price. The only thing we did not like is the lightning of the restaurant, it... More

Always enjoy an Indian meal in this restaurant. Definitely worth a visit, good attentive table service, reasonably priced. Watch out for the bottle of water they put on the table and pour for you without saying anything and then charge you for it.

Received a warm welcome from immaculately presented staff. Very clean and well dressed environment. Service was efficient, the food itself tasted hot and fresh. We chose the milder dishes of chicken korma and vegetable curry with curry sauce. The vegetables were perfectly cooked and tasted fresh. Roti and nan accompanied the delicious and delicate rice grains within a biryani and... More

Really tasty Indian dishes and breads. There is plenty to choose from the and when it arrives you will be guaranteed to enjoy it. The Bombay mix on the table seemed a little English 80's indian restaurant but otherwise the food was enjoyed and the service was of the expected standard. I'd want to go again.
