Description: Chingari which translates as 'sparkling charcoal' delightfully crackles with autenticity and brings genuine Tandoor cuisine to Doha. Dine in Maharaja splendour as you feast on our freshest produce, marinated and cooked in traditional clay ovens, whilst musicians serenade you with sweet ghazals from India.

“Really unique experience”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This restaurant is outstanding for many reasons. Beautiful decor, very comfortable low tables that makes the whole experience really friendly and informal, very nice menu - hard to choose only one dish -, friendly and attentive employees. The wine list is exciting and not particularly expensive. The food is one of the best solutions for indian cuisine what we have ever tried - and we love trying it wherever we travel. The presentation is unique and the portions are really generous. We still had sweets at the end of our dining - perfect finish. The live music was just another extra touch, brilliant. I will be back.

“My favourite restaurant in Doha”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

I have been many times in Chingari and all I can say is:

Excellent Indian food, eclectic Indian decoration, live (and not too loud) sitar music, very good service..

What else to say - go ahead and try it, I am sure you will be back!

“Best Indian in Doha”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

I'd been to the Chingari many times in the past then had not been been back there in 4yrs. I wasn't sure how it was going to compare to my previous visits. However, afterwards we agreed it was still to the high standard we were used if not better. Not the cheapest restaurant in Doha but certainly one of the better ones.

“More relaxing than a spa!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Chingari is located very centrally at the Radisson Blu hotel.
We go there for dinner whenever we want to treat ourselves. It is very nicely decorated in warm colours, carpets, etc; you are sat very comfortably on red sofas and immediately served with appetizers.
The food is from Norhern Indian and specialised in tandoor cooking. Every dish is better than the other and the staff is so dedicated it is even embarrasing.
Excellent value for money.
