Doha Good Food Guide
Welcome to the Doha Good Food Guide. It's the beginning of a great eating experience!
Add your review, good or bad, of a restaurant you ate at. It's an opportunity to catalogue Doha's eateries, and to use as an unbias reference again and again.
For simplicity and ease of use, a standard format needs to be used for each review.
(eg. modern, fine dining, cafe, el cheapo, buffet, bistro, indian, thai, japanese, arabic, etc)
(use a simple rating system of A, B, C, or F.
A=the best, B=good, C=pass, F=fail/don't go)
LOCATION: (give a landmark aswell)
AVERAGE PRICE: (expensive, moderate, cheap)
ALCOHOL/WINE LIST: (a good selection for those wine connisuers?)
COMMENT/REVIEW: (remember, you get what you pay for, so be fair)
OVERALL SCORE: eg. B+
Happy eating everyone, and start your reviewing!!

Minsan tayong mga pinoy naooverdramatized kung papano gagawin at maghanda ng kahit napakasimpleng lutuin at lalo pang pinapahirap ang pagluluto kahit hindi naman. Mas lalo pa tayong walang ganang gumawa lalo pat sa mga mamahaling restoran lamang ito matitikman kasi cguro sa isip natin mahal, wlang sangkap at well-seasoned chef lamang ang nakakagawa.
Pero dahil espesyal na araw ang katorse, kagabi sinubukan kong gumawa at heto... try try lang...

Going to Oshi Sushi restaurant at Eid proved to be a great choice !As it is a new place at the third floor of the Royal plaza we managed to avoid the crowds .Only four five families were having Eid lunch and it was really relaxing there !The music , the beautifully and simply set table , the bento , the sashimi , the miso , the Japanese curry ... all made me feel as I was in Japan ... it was a reaL ESCAPE .
We were using fork and spoon - but also we were trying to use the chopping sticks .The hot, wet towels were meant to clean our hands before and not after eating .I learnt that only later when I was reading more on the Japanese cuisine !
" Turkish Centre "
Cuisine : :D Arabic(Grilled)
ATMOSPHERE : A ..very lively
FOOD: A+ ... the best of grilled non seafood I've ever eaten !!
SERVICE : B ( for me, I had a bad day !)
LOCATION: Along the Road to the Al SAAD stadium, major landmarks : the whole street is filled with small outlets of evereything fastfood, major botiques !!
CUISINE TYPE: Italiano.
- ATMOSPHERE : B (It was ok for me)
- FOOD : A
Appertiser : Romano's Sampler <---Deep fried calamari - Tasty, crunchy on the outside and soft and juicy on the inside, Bruchetta - Though its bigger than a bite size, it was nice and Deep fried mozarella--->
Main Course : Shrimp Portofino - The pasta was very nice, sause was cremy, tasty and delicious and caesar della Casa - salad was ok.
Drink : San Pellegfino water.
Desert : Big piece of brownie with melted chocolate and whipped cream. - it was haven.
I was very disappointed when I found this cafe closed during Eid . Was there a mouse like at the Carrefour in summer ? I have not heard anything - just I saw with sadness that it was closed due to the municipalities order .
This restaurant cafe is so popular and not without merit .
The service is quick and nice .The decor is vintage style - rustic chairs arranged in casual manner.The cakes are tasty ,old fashioned calorie bombs .
When we asked for a kid's meal -first we were given some tasty bread and butter and tapenade .Then came the chicken sandwich which was described as small in the menu - but actually it was large enough for three kids . The ice cream was OK . The cappuccino was a real ,continental hot drink , not a bucket -but a reasonable cup comme il faut .
Did anyone try any of their outlets, is the food good or no.
Hope to get soem feedback.
Me and a couple of my buddies went for Iftar to Al Khaima (No denying that this is my fav restaurant for grilled arabic food no matter what part of year, time or day.)
They have a buffet from 1730 to 1630 for ramadan at Qrs.60/- per head and booking is in advance.
Juices - Orange tang and some brown coloured sour stuff.
They have lentel soup,
Appertizers - mutabel, hummus, tabule, green salad.
Main course - grilled fish (Can't comment, as I am not much for sea food), grilled chicken, lamb, kebabs, french fries, whole lamb on a bed of rice, half chicken grilled on a bed of rice, beef burgers with dollop of mashed potatoes on a sea of tomato sauce, chicken on some sort of beans.
For dessert - arabic sweets, don't know the names about 8 of them.
Hi everybody! I would like to share my experience about this lovely neighbourhood restaurant called Bennigan's. I just recently joined to the group, so I will try to write my reviews and experiences frequently.
They have a good variety of meat, fish and vegetarian meals. I love the French onion soup, the crab cake (yummi)and the ceasar salat. This is what I ate so far but intend to go back soon.
The staff is very kind and fast.
Of course it's not an elegant restaurant, but in the neighbourhood category it's a good one. Impressive decoration. :)
RESTAURANT NAME:Italian Fisherman
CUISINE TYPE: Italian
THE SCORE: ***
- ATMOSPHERE:nice, pleasant, very empty, only customers
- FOOD: menu says fresh seafood = you get frozen seafood on plate
Appetizers: didn't order any
Soup: disn't order any
Main dish:ordered the seafood pizza. The seafood wasn't fresh, and very little, a lot of cheese on it, but I think it was of a sweeter variety, not the traditional mozerella.
- SERVICE:was OK since we were the only customers there!
LOCATION: next door to Merch and Tadmur on Salwa Rd. (just under the bridge)
AVERAGE PRICE: Reasonably priced on menu
COMMENT/REVIEW: Overpriced on bill!! A bottle of Gulfa was QRs14. They also added a service charge and charged extra for the food without letting us know in advance.
OVERALL SCORE: F
Doha good food guide group
Hei members, why I have the impression that the manager of this group is not available? maybe he left? or too busy cooking ? (I could understand this)Please tell me if you feel the same
(Sorry for maybe double posting, but I think I posted wrong before)
I see there is not much action, so I decided to say something,(details not in my profile) why I joined this group:
my nick is anciullo, but my real name is Angelo (from Italy)
I see one of the member name is exactly Angelo (from India, with this nick?funny)
and the group administrator is angel 123
so this group is a paradise
(by the way,I also divorced my wife, recently)
The administrator is a chef (working here in Doha I suppose,can I ask where?) australian
My son is a young chef, moved to Australia since 3 months
And I like cooking, eat and go to good restaurants.
ciao to everybody
Where are you and what's the deal with the group?

Went to SARAI last night 31 May 2007
Submitted by Angelo on Fri, 01/06/2007 - 10:43am.
Saw this place a couple of months back when we went for a walk at Villagio Mall , but was not opened yet.
A couple of weeks back, went again to Villagio had a meal at TGI Fiday's and on our way out, enquired with the Sarai staff and were told they were open but do not have takeaway or advance reservation.
So by this time, when we went yesterday, we were pretty excited.
When are we going to take off?
