A really special restaurant to visit, right in the middle of the vibrant soul wakif. Entrance hall is proper bling, and the restaurant itself is a beautiful secluded internal courtyard, decorated with mosaics and murals.

The service and food is just great. Arabic bread is served fresh from the oven. However, what is terrifying is that restaurant workers do not wash their hands after their 'appointment's in the washrooms. I witnessed this on 2 separate occasions when I had to rinse off my hands after consuming the very tasty barbequed lamb chops.

Don't judge it by the almost run down old look of it. This is a hidden gem! Doha doesn't have the highest standard for food & so we went to this place w/ very low expectations. But OH MY were we in for a treat! The juiciest kebab ever ! The fresh bread coming out of an open flame oven.... More

Really love this place. It has beautiful decor, you would think it is an expensive place to eat but it is very reasonably priced. We all had the mixed meat platter which comes with plenty of rice and chips and delicious meat. Plus salad and endless servings of bread. Service is good. Food is good. No complaints from me!

This Iranian restaurant serving a very nice food starting from the lentil soup to the delicious mix grill specially the shish kofta, different rice varieties, Iranian bread and you can enjoy the special tea with cookies. Good hospitality of the serving staff with nice classic decoration using the hand made Iranian carpets and water currents make it more relaxing.
