“Best sushi in Doha and great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

Spice is great for happy hours, for set menu lunches, but most especially for its sushi! Most of the restaurants in Doha suffer from terrible service but Spice Market is definitely the exception. The servers are courteous and prompt. The food is always fresh and delicious and the Friday brunch is probably the best in the city. I highly recommend a visit!

“2nd best restaurant in the W”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

It takes a lot of willpower to visit the W and eat anywhere besides Market, but occasionally you need a change, and this is definitely the 2nd best option. We've been a few times and had mixed experiences, to be honest, but decided to give it another chance for a business lunch. I opted for the sushi express, which was excellent apart from the disgusting soup. My wife had a chicken curry, which to her horror came with skin, bone and girstle. Once it had been butchered it was tasty. The service is good and it's a beautiful restaurant. We tried the Friday brunch once, but the hot food was sitting congealing under burners and it was overpriced. We might try it again for their sushi special, or for an evening meal, but I can't promise because there is a much better option available downstairs at Market.

“Amazing restaurant and food was mouthwatering”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Visiting friends in Qatar, we ate here one evening and found the staff and the restaurant amazing. We were givin complementary starters as we only ordered main meals, the manager said that as we didnt order any he would like us to try some, I thought this was a wonderful touch.

All the staff go above and beyond in Doha and here is no exception. The food was delightful, tasty and cannot wait for my next visit to Doha.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

Happy hour from 5-7 but the measures seem smaller during that time. Free starter in happy hour though with drinks which is good
