Very delicious grill all meat, and a special bread is served with the food that is made by the same restaurant, one thing is I don't recommend which is: Not to dine in, not the best atmosphere "To go" (takeaway) would be a better choice.

Their bread and mixed grill are off the charts! I can't believe I had such good food at such a reasonable price. And for those of us who live in Doha, it is really a rare find! The only downside to this restaurant is the fact that it is almost always too busy. Amazing food, prompt service and smiles all... More

If endless platters of delicious food at a very reasonable price is what you would like, then this is the place for you! I couldn't believe the amount of food that was placed before us. The helpings are large and the value is amazing! The best lamb I have ever tasted. Parking can be a problem because of the popularity... More

We had a few hours transfer in Doha and decided to try this place basing on the previous reviews. We ordered mix of appetizers and mix of grilled meat. Great lamb and chicken skewers accompanoed with sesame pita bread. Very good hummus and tabouleh. Super yummy food at a reasonable price!

I ordered the meat (beef) and chicken shawarma sandwiches for take away. The prices for the sandwiches were standard 6 or 7 QR. Both kinds were great. The service was quick and the guy at the register was very friendly.

Nice Turkish food at logical price for the portions served. Service is efficient. Cleanliness is mid-ranged. Difficult to find a parking lot outside (unless you are lucky and someone is leaving). You may need to walk some minutes after parking in the nearby streets. Mixed grill, shawarma and lamb chops are my favorites but never went away disappointed even with... More

The absolute best for authentic, tasty Turkish food. Ridiculously cheap. Noisy and rustic to the extreme, and always hectic, but a must. Their shawarma is not merely the best in Qatar, it is the best I've had in a decade of living in the Middle East. And the portions are huge.

The food is delicious and the service is solid. The chicken shwarma is my favorite. Good for dining in or pick-up.

The first time I tried eating an arabic food, humus and mixed salad was so unforgettable that was 11 years ago. And always keep coming back here with a selection of mixed grill, chicken grill, lamb chops, chicken wings. A Must stop for taking visiting family and friends plus it is super affordable.
